Some good news on jobs to start your day.

And yet despite this every Republican currently running for office claims that the economy is the "worst ever" and that under Obama jobs are down.

    Oh dear, did you send an email to crap4palin so they'll know to cover their eyes when they troll IM? They can't afford to see these numbers, denial is becoming hard enough as it is.

    You just watch. Donald Trump will say the true unemployment rate is 40%, but he won't say that includes grade school children...drooling senior citizens...and millions of people who have died and have given up looking for work.

  3. Lawyers say that in court, whoever has the best story wins. Well, good news is boring. For fear-loving Americans, it doesn't gel with their perceptions of reality fed by fear-mongerers. Thus Trump can easily confirm their prejudices. Charts with lines going up: just statistical lies.

      Meanwhile wages are not going up.....thanks to all those Repubs (federal and state) who refuse to increase the minimum wage to a living wage. In fact, I believe I read the other day about a regressive who supports lowering the minimum wage. Sure wish people would learn how an economy actually works

    Permit me to translate that positive economic news into language the average conservative can appreciate:

    "Failed Obama administration fails to record job growth for over 65 months; Failure predicted to trigger stock market plunge of 850-98%; massive food shortages on the horizon; reports of random attacks on innocent civilians by marauding bands of minority youths expected imminently; courageous tea party congressional caucus plans urgent action to repeal Obamacare; Kenyan-born president celebrates as war on Christmas enters 7th year; all citizens urged to buy handguns and prepare to panic."

    fukdafacts....rethuglican reality is a fact free universe....except for the facts that more guns make us more safer and more money to the fewest makes us all more richer.

  7. And yet now, when a voice in the media is most needed for the Democratic Party he only hing close to such, MSNBC, is being subverted by its own management to become FOX 2.0. WTF, WTF, WTMUTHAF.

    They'll always spin it to fit their narrative, be it by strategic editing or misleading delivery. I actually listened to a Fox News bimbette deliver the same job numbers report for last month using verbal 'spin' to disguise the actual meaning: "Last month, the US economy added ONLY 228,000 jobs.... We were EXPECTING to add 200,000." Truthiness at it's finest!

    GOP Candidates Will Reverse Obama’s Record Deficit Reduction

    GOP candidates want to reverse Obama’s gains with huge tax cuts for the rich that helped create the Bush deficit the President has erased

    ...The media should have trumpeted the news that President Barack Obama had “virtually eliminated the over $1.4 trillion deficit legacy he inherited from the Bush administration” and reduced it to $439 billion in fiscal 2015 (Sept. 30).

    According to economic experts, under President Barack Obama “the deficit was normalizing for the first time in 50 years; since 1965.” The deficit has continued to fall with the latest monthly report showing a budget surplus coming in at a respectable $55 billion and the Department of Treasury explained why;

    “Strong growth in individual tax collection drove the U.S. budget deficit to a fresh Obama-era low in fiscal 2015. The deficit is the smallest of Barack Obama’s presidency and the lowest since 2007 in both dollar terms and as a percentage of gross domestic product.”

    What the DOT report did not mention was that “as a percentage of the economy, the deficit is now down to just 2.5 percent which is below the average of the past half-century, and down from 9.8 percent when the president took office.”

    It is more than noteworthy to highlight why the deficit dropped substantially over the past couple of years: “Strong growth in individual tax collection.” Republicans love to claim that only slashing spending decreases the deficit, but like any business or family knows; increased revenue is what really pays down debt. This is critically important because every one of the Republican presidential hopefuls is proposing massive tax cuts for the rich that will “eliminate growth in individual tax collection” and, as history perpetually proves, drives the deficit through the proverbial ceiling...

    THANK YOU for posting this. Anyone who thinks Obama has hurt the country is either an idiot, a liar, or a bigot. Our economic picture now compared to 2008 is night and day.

  11. Obviously the media falls down on the job by not trumpeting the facts - but Democrats also need to be shouting the truth from the rooftops!

    Kind of blows to be republican and have to lie about jobs, the awful, horrible, Armageddon whopping President Obama has given this exceptional country.

    And he's still got a year left to rub it in their faces!


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
