    Only adds fuel to MittMentum.

    Bob is dreaming and VA looks blue too

    Real info  from the jobs report posted - exerpt below:

    Highlights from the BLS report:

    Total nonfarm payroll employment increased by 171,000 in October, and the unemployment rate was essentially unchanged at 7.9 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Employment rose in professional and business services, health care, and retail trade.
    The civilian labor force rose by 578,000 to 155.6 million in October, and the labor
    force participation rate edged up to 63.8 percent. Total employment rose by 410,000
    over the month. The employment-population ratio was essentially unchanged at 58.8
    percent, following an increase of 0.4 percentage point in September. (See table A-1.)

    The number of persons employed part time for economic reasons (sometimes referred to
    as involuntary part-time workers) fell by 269,000 to 8.3 million in October, partially
    offsetting an increase of 582,000 in September. These individuals were working part
    time because their hours had been cut back or because they were unable to find a
    full-time job.

     

    Slow, steady growth - its a good thing except when BDC conservatives look for the one negative piece of data. - they also complained about people looking for work increasing but now whine when it goes up.....no shocks there...but the facts still look better for the Country!

    The number ticked up .1 because over 500K people entered the workforce.  Previous months were revised upward to reflect actuals.  But of course the numbers have been cooked, so what does it matter when we can bask in the glow of the myth of Mittmentum.

    Nothing makes Republicans madder than an expanding work force.

    Obama Faces Voters With Highest Unemployment Of Any Incumbent Since FDR....

    Unemployment rate higher than when he took office...

    Last month, when the rate went under 8%, liberals told us that number was the critical number., not the number who left the workforce, or the underemployment...

    Now, this month, it is the 500K who returned to the workforce..

    Quite a shell game..bottom line, Obama's economy sucks.

     .The Obama 'recovery' in a nutshell.....according to statistics compiled by the Republican side of the Senate Budget Committee. "For Every Person Added to Jobs Rolls Since January 2009, 75 People Added To Food Stamp Rolls."

    No; what is frustraing is when the expansion can't keep up with job loss and unemployment rises.

     

    We don't need four more years of Obama economic wheel spinning in the economic ditch.  Its time to move forward with a new recovery plan.
