WOW; 7.6% drop from 10.2% over 28 months… WOW!

I literally jumped up and celebrated when these great job numbers came out this morning… my co-workers laughed their asses off.

Part of me celebrating was because this is great news for the country and President Obama, but the other part is because I knew that this would drive the unpatriotic right-wing nuts crazy; and they didn’t disappoint either, LOL. they quickly came crashing back down to reality after a full day of thinking they had a chance after Obama’s chess move at the debates, LOL.

Uncle Tom Allen West’s Minstrel Show will soon be over when Patrick Murphy kicks his disgraceful ass out of congress.

Of course this explains why Romney now says he didn't mean what he said about the 47%...it's now 46%.

We had 600,000 new parttimers along with 685,000 people who just went pffft.

Oh well , it is an election season and Chicago style politics is in full bloom.

The basis for these figures are 60,000 telephone calls to individual households.

The books on unemployment have been cooked for a good long time. Reagan cooked the books big time on unemployment, and they were often cooked before his time. bush jr brought cooking the unemployment books to new heights. With a real figure of 41% unemployment, he ordered the labor department to report 4.1%. He told them (since he is the head of the executive branch) that anyone reporting bad numbers would be fired on the spot.

Now we are talking about 10% versus 8% when the real number is closer to 40%. Yes it has gotten better than the 4.1% bush had reported, but no where near reality.

Romney's followers placed 20,000 of the calls to China.

Gas is going to $5 in CA! Pumps are closing down!

CALIFORNIA = people fleeing from poor schools, high taxes, out of control government, lack of fiscal responsibility and open borders.

High gas prices = Obama

DEpendence on FOREIGN ENERGY from UNSTABLE countries = Obama

FAILURE TO MAKE THE USA INdependent of Foreign energy!

invested billions and billions in FAILED, repeat that FAILED green companies. More government breaks for these companies than the oil companies ever received in a 4 year span!

Romney wants the USA INdependent of FOREIGN ENERGY.

I agree with him! Go Romney/Ryan!

Reaganomics created 22 million jobs off the free market as is intended by Romney.

You can't cook that, screwball. Even Clinton rode the coattails of Reaganomics.

Right, Great news my ass. Black unemployment at 15%. Hispanic unemployment at 12.5% And liberals are jumping up and down screaming in joy at a .4% drop from 8.2% to 7.8%. Wow, that really helps Obummer. Tell the good news to the 23 MILLION Americans out of work or who just gave up because of Obummer's failed economic policies. As for cooking the books on the unemployment rate, considering that Obummer and his gang of Chicago thugs have been busted lying about everything from what caused the Bengahzi terrorist attack to calling the Fort Hood terrorist murders "a work place incident." Because Obummer & gang have been proven to have lied about matters of national security, it is easy to conclude that he also cooked the unemployment numbers to improve his slim chance of retaining the presidency.

Your hero's in the vp office and WH have failed to mention most job creation last 4 years have been in red states with republican leadership, of which nobama has nothing to do with. It'll come out soon enough, when Ryan rips Biden worse than Romney ripped Nobama.

For all these Left wing Loons, the unemployment rate did not drop because of more jobs, it dropped because most people gave up looking for work. Obama now supplies them with unemploment insurance for about2 yrs, disability insurance and Welfare. All Democrats lie and try to boost Obama's numbers for some reason.

The reported payrolls growth figure for September, 114,000 jobs, was incredibly close to consensus forecasts of about 115,000 jobs added. But everything else about the report considerably beat expectations. Jobs figures were revised upward by 40,000 in July, and by 46,000 in August. Combined with the jobs growth in September, that means the economy added 200,000 more jobs than we thought previously.

Just great news all around!

The economy is improving and the unemployment rate is coming down with more jobs being created. Four years ago we were losing over 750,000 jobs per month and now were are gaining jobs per is quite a turn around despite the Republican obstruction and their number one priority of making Obama a one term president. Republican choose politics over country again.
Stock Market is up far more than four years ago. Manufacturing has come back up after 8 years of decline during the Bush administration. This is all good for the country and hope many more of the unemployed find jobs. Go America.
