Why? Republicans want more jobs. Nobody is going to give Obama a trophy for 0.3 percent after all this time and money spent. Don't be ridiculous.

It's hard to say which lie is the worst...

1) Movie cover-up for Libya.
2) Executive orders Fast & Furious.
3) Cooking the unemployment number.

It's just an obama-na-tion..running away..running away with lies.

Obama sucks so bad it took him 4 years to get back to where we started in terms of a raw percentage and the problem is we're over $16 TRILLION in DEBT while Millions of People have given up hope leaving the work force.

They will only come back when there's a change at the top. They want a leader that's capable of working across the aisle unlike the JACKASS Obama who has done nothing but attack the other side from Day 1 claiming "I WON."


Face it loon, Obama is the Most Divisive POS we've ever seen. He's also a Criminal that has assassinated US citizens! Obama is the Greatest Evil.

This should be a time that Republicans and Democrats are happy for a bit of good news. I find it very sad that our country has gotten so mean and hateful to one another that even the ecomony improving brings nothing but scorn from some.

The unemployment numbers have been dropping all year but suddenly a slight drop sends the extremists into a frenzy of "cooked books" and "conspiracy" remarks. Why would ANYONE want the ecomony to stay in the dumps? Because it makes Obama look bad if he can not bring about a miracle in 4 years.

This is exactly the reason Job Bills were all voted down.....even for Veterans Jobs. Republicans have got to wake up and see what the Tea Party has done to their Party and take their Party back.

When young men and women graduating HS or College can't find a decent job, You've been Obama'd.

When the Deficit has Doubled and Tripled under this administration while the fool says he'd cut it in half, look around brother! You've been Obama'd.

When the president offers more help and foreign aid to Illegals than real Citizens, shake your head in disbelief but know this, You've been Obama'd!

When this country's citizens can sell their vote for a cheap cell phone, it's time to ask what happened to this once proud nation but we know the answer. We've been Obama'd.

This November let's never let that happen again.

Attention carol-o-moron!!! News for you…There is no way the job number dropped, if anything it's up. Climb out of your ivory tower and hit the streets. That way you won't look like a sissified moron regurgitating what the disgruntled obama administration and media cohorts pooped in your ears.
The facts show b. h. obama is to jobs, the economy and America what a drunk farting gasbag is to fine dining.

Fast and Furious Scandal: New Details Emerge on How the U.S. Government Armed Mexican Drug Cartels

By GERARDO REYES and SANTIAGO WILLS
Sept. 30, 2012

On January 30, 2010, a commando of at least 20 hit men parked themselves outside a birthday party of high school and college students in Villas de Salvarcar, Ciudad Juarez. Near midnight, the assassins, later identified as hired guns for the Mexican cartel La Linea, broke into a one-story house and opened fire on a gathering of nearly 60 teenagers. Outside, lookouts gunned down a screaming neighbor and several students who had managed to escape. Fourteen young men and women were killed, and 12 more were wounded before the hit men finally fled.

The United States government played a role in the massacre by supplying some of the firearms used by the cartel murderers. Three of the high caliber weapons fired that night in Villas de Salvarcar were linked to a gun tracing operation run by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), according to a Mexican army document obtained exclusively by Univision News.

Univision News identified a total of 57 more previously unreported firearms that were bought by straw purchasers monitored by ATF during Operation Fast and Furious, and then recovered in Mexico in sites related to murders, kidnappings, and at least one other massacre.

Attention b. h. obama!!! A job is not a Sham-Wow franchise or waiting tables part time...A job is somthing that pays all the bills on time and puts $4.00 gas in your tank. That means the majority of Americans are vastly under-employed...

The crazy tea-baggers can’t accept reality… they never have been able to deal with the real world where a Black man is President and where that same Black President single-handedly killed Osama bin Laden.

I am so happy to see this great news on the economy… 7.8% added to 35 straight months of job growth with a Stock Market at a five year high after climbing over 6,000 points… it is just great to watch these right wing idiots suffer with the prospects of Obama being re-elected.

Early voting has started and Obama is winning big in the battleground states.

Attention moron cow patty!!! Besides your pathetic libelous race-baiting...Just dangle spurious unemployment numbers in front of you and you act like an excited two year old laying on his backside waving his hands and running his tiny feet...When you have 23,000,000 unemployed, under-employed lost souls that means most everyone knows someone who is suffering under b. h. obama. Those people know by their gut someone is cooking the books and they can see b. h. obama is lying...again.
Now face the facts and go back to the losing state of mind you had immediately following the debate...That's reality and you must learn to deal with it.
Furthermore...The stock market is a total farce and only morons remain in it or the profiteers with their fingers glued to a sell button. And, votes are not counted until an election is over.
And furthermore, I wish b. h. obama would have said he got bin laden single-handedly as you so often contend...I really wish.
