Not that I need to rub this in the faces of you disgusting right-wingers… I actually want to rub this in their faces:

I TOLD YOU SO!

Thank God we elected and re-elected President Obama; we have been vindicated so many times over, from the killing of Bin Laden to HCR… we were right and you unpatriotic tea-baggers were wrong. The economy is better now than when Bush destroyed it. I demand an apology from every right-wing tea-bagging fool that disparaged this President for the last 4 years 6 months and 3 days.

Well this is typical up and down that's been going on for nearly five years now. Nothing new here. Once Commie Care kicks in full gear next year, I'm certain we will see another pitfall.

The private market always comes back, it's just a matter of when. I really don't believe the time is now though. Plus these jobs numbers always get revised the following month.

Such a success this big-eared dope. At this rate of this success, we should see unemployment at 5% in 2035.

You didn't read the article did you, stolen valor boy. PRIVATE sector.. Nobama's government funded attempts at creating jobs were massive failures.

After GOP retook the house in 2010...private sectors don't need to face any further tax attacks from the left, except those massive BS put on us by pelosi/nobama and crew from 2008-2010..the brakes were put on when we fired nancy, boy. Now the private sector is slowly recovering due to low tax states beginning to prosper, and clowns like you claim nobama has something to do with it????

RFLMAO

Take your apology and place it where the sun don't shine.

Read the article, goofball. The economy gains are in fossil fuel energy which is everything nobama opposes....
WE TOLD YOU SO!! Drill, baby drill!!
Patty, you're so prodictable!! LMAO
The energy sector plays a major role in global economic growth and recovery.Recent discoveries have put the United States on track to become the world's largest producer of oil and natural gas in a few years. At the same time, oil imports have fallen to a 17-year low.The energy breakthroughs have come despite Obama's heavy emphasis on promoting renewable clean-energy sources, such as wind and solar power, for the future.In the months and years ahead, domestic energy production "is going to be a real driver of economic growth," said economist Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office and chief economic adviser to Sen. John McCain's 2008 presidential campaign.These energy gains, while not that big yet, will be reflected in more jobs at drilling and other energy work sites, reduced manufacturing costs and improvements in the nation's balance of trade, said Holtz-Eakin, now head of the American Action Forum, a conservative public policy institute.

Read the article, dippy....oil and natural gas are the mainstays of this lift on the economy..which your messiah is totally opposed.

Renewable energy dropping off, affordable healthcare will not be affordable......

Strategies: Dow Touches 15,000 but the Economy Lags http://t.co/szjulVJoop (Obama a crony for WallStreet and banks) Much more than Bush...LMAO

You're really gullible.

You have no idea WTF you're even talking about. Wasn't it DumBama who predicted all this doom and gloom because of the sequester?

The so-called stimulus was years ago and has absolutely no impact on the economy of today. It failed and so has DumBama, because without him, our economy would have been picking up years ago. And what healthcare reform policies do you speak of? Everybody's healthcare insurance has gone up--way up, and much of that is due to Commie Care. Businesses are planning to turn their full time employees to part time (under 30 hours) to keep their full time employees under 50 people to get away from Commie Care.

And we know all about his renewal energy plan. It's called Solyndra and it failed along with other green energy wastes of money.

DumBama has nothing to do with any kind of economic recovery because he is the most anti-business President we've ever seen in our lifetime.

Great Post!

If these right-wingers had their way we would see unemployment above 25% like it is in Spain. It kills these unpatriotic tea-bagging idiots to realize that President Obama was brilliant and 100% correct in every step that he took from the day he stepped into the Oval Office. I always go back to this point because it highlights Obama’s Presidency so well:

The fact that Obama was able to do in 2 years what Bush’s inept reign couldn’t do in 7 years (single-handedly find and kill Osama bin Laden; and without a single successful 9-11 type/level terrorist attack on American soil) says all you need to know about the strong and brilliant leadership of Barack Hussein Obama. I got one guy at the gym that I workout at finally admit that he was wrong about Obama… that made my day because that guy was always trying to put Obama down and blame him for the Bush mess.

STFU Loser!

You were wrong; and you're just upset that there is great news on the economy and President Obama is being given all the credit for it.

Where am I wrong? Everything I wrote is absolutely true. Why would I care if DumBama gets any credit for anything? He's not running again.

You leftists are making this out to be something it's not. This is not great news by the way. It's still terrible news--just not as terrible as the previous news about the economy.

How many times in the last four years have we been through this? Some jobs are created, the unemployment number shifts slightly, and all you people on the left celebrate until it reverses and goes back up. Then you have nothing to say. But each and every time the unemployment numbers dropped, you people claimed it was some sort of trend. It's not a trend, it's a bounce. And it may bounce up for a month or two, and then it will bounce back down again.
