3 months of little change. I'm pretty sure July and August would fall within that range.
How many of those 'new' jobs were seasonal 'picking' jobs?
Probably most of 'em.

Hey Hip. In an earlier post, you said 'everything outside the bedroom is our business.'(PP) But aren't you the one that also said 'obama's school records are his business, and his alone.'?

Do you consider yourself a freethinker?
What d'ya 'spose the chances are we find posts where you've used words and phrases that we might find also in the current popular discourse? What are the chances that every other post on this page contain words that one can also find on a blog?

An attempt at a zinger, or......uh, what's your point? Did you see those other words carefully arranged around "their words" in common grammatical constructs known as "sentences"? They ain't there fer window-dressing, yaknow?

No doubt like yourself, I read mornings and evenings, and interact with a diversity of people throughout each day. Don't worry, this is farm country - the conservative view is well represented. I get the fresh skinny about communism every day with my morning coffee.

When you want to be President, everything about you outside the marital bedroom is our business. You want to crown a king, buy an island. The rest of us are hiring a Chief Executive.
I'll tell you what I told Karl. SHOW me the law that says that. Show me where that's written and while you're at it show me Obama's college transcripts, show me his college application and show me who paid for his tuition.

Thanks.

Awww, are you still mad that your candidate almost tinkled in his pants the other night? Maybe he would have done better if his supporters and the left wing media hadn't bowed down to him from day one, had asked him the tough questions over the last 4 years and actually held him accountable for his job performance.

What you saw was the ineffectual, lazy candidate you liberals helped create.
Nice going.
Well said. And something else too: in his arrogance and hubris, Obama just plain underestimated his opponent, and apparently so did his staff. Served 'em right.

About 1.5%, I think.

Reportedly, most of the jobs were also part-time.

Putting the election aside for minute Roberta and putting aside my wanting Romney to do well, that was still MY president up there for 90 minutes unable to defend himself, unable to explain himself and had a 4 year record that was so pathetic he hung his head because there was nothing else he could do. With the right questions and fact after fact after fact, my mother could have reduced to him to a puddle of mush.

Regardless of party affiliation I don't ever want to see my president look like that again. We hired him to do a job, he was taken to the cleaners and as nice as that is for Romney, that was MY country they were talking about.

Had I been an Obama supporter and additionally had an emotional investment in him and he gave that kind of dismal performance because it was all he had, I would have been enraged. So in my opinion, he didn't just let down the democratic party 2 nights ago. He let down the entire nation.

True that.
Inflation adjusted wages have fallen every year of this "recovery". And the policies in place of deficit spending and money printing guaranty they'll continue to fall, short of a complete collapse.

Good question. The BLS puts out an "Adjusted Household Survey" which was created to track closer to the Non-Farm Payroll Survey. It ignores Agriculture payrolls, the self employed and family members that do not draw a salary. That number came in at +294,000 compared to the headline +873,000. That means 579,000 workers fell within the "adjusted" exemptions. How many of those were field hands is anybody's guess.

I saw her go at it with a CNN anchor, that Erin whats-her-name, that used to be a financial newswoman. By half way through the debate, Cutter's number had dropped to 2 $trillion$, and her final say on the matter was "Well, we're sure it's at least 1 $trillion$". If Erin had stayed on her long enough, she'd of had her down to lunch money.
It's amazing how an imaginary number tends to melt into thin air, just like everything else that's fudged.

It was incredibly sad but Idon't think we need to expect perfection. We had a president throw-up at a state dinner and this wasn't that much worse than that.

Heh heh heh..... Now where did you learn those curiously defined rules about about how a president should be vetted?

If ya don't like Romney's success, or what he does with the proceeds thereof, yer free to vote for Obama. But yer constant bellyaching about HIS money doesn't prove anything,'crept that yer petty and jealous, just like Obama....
