    So, to sum up the view through wingnut goggles: the unemployments numbers are all fake, as long as the numbers improve. As long as the numbers are getting worse or stagnant, the numbers are absolutely legitimate.

    My view: the unemployment numbers are fake. The real unemployment rate is 3.5%.

    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    If by "wingnut goggles" you mean citing numbers that are demonstrably misleading then I guess you're right.

    If this can drop another full point in the next ten months, it changes a whole lot facing November of 2012.

    Isn't it ironic that good news for America means bad news for the right wing in this nation.

    How can anyone read that story and paint it as a positive? Teh numbers are augmented by Americans leaving the workforce...translation...they quit...they just gave up, They have stopped filing new claims. They are further augmented by seasonal retail sales. None of this has ANYTHING to do with the 'actual' unemployment rate.

    Of course the flip side argument is...hey...no troubles...great job growth...there really ARE jobs out there so everyone whining about jobs...**** off...get a job.

    How is a net loss in individuals in the workforce/actively looking for work "good news" for America? It's more of a Common sense issue rather than a partisan one.

    It kind of reminds me of the last election, in which good news in Iraq was seen as bad news for the Democrats. Still the Democrats won, and we're still in Iraq. I'm not sure just what can be concluded from that.

    The questions still remains how is it that 47% of Income earning households not paying any Federal Income Taxes weren't benefited by the Bush tax cuts? The rich paid 38% of the FIT collected, 47% of income earning households paid nothing but liberals claim that was a tax cut for the rich? That is liberal logic!
