    As of this report, we are 400,000 jobs shy of the number of employed people 3 years ago.

    If his goal is to destroy us he's doing a terrible job of it, lol.
    NEWS FLASH: Obama can't get re-elected if he destroys the country. BTW, he did do things to path the way, but that doesn't involve economy.

    I usually go by what I see. When Clinton was in office during the bubble, I could easily find a job. When Bush 2 took over and our country was attacked, I STILL found a job in a few weeks. Throughout his presidency I didn't know many unemployed people, pretty much if you wanted to work you could find something. In 2007 that began to change and now I know a lot of people without a job and laid off. Some of them are highly educated and qualified people with no place to go to get a job.

    Usually my direct experience, since I deal with so many different people all the time, tells me the real story. That has been true since the mid 1990's. But I definitely do NOT see any improvement, in fact I see continued downturns. People who have been working steadily for decades suddenly in an unemployment line. I hope this news is true, God people need work. I just hate to see numbers fudged to make an imbecile look good as numbers dont pay bills, real jobs do.

    So he's not destroying the country now so that he can be reelected and then destroy it? What's wrong, he doesn't have enough power as president to destroy it in one term? lol. Do you think they get magical powers in their second term or something?

    You guys are a hoot, lol.

    I don't see how it changes their reputation. They are doomsayers and always have been; no one is denying they are bearish biased. When I say reputable, they are known for getting news before major networks and are obviously very sophisticated when it comes to global financial markets. No one claims they are unbiased, but that doesn't make them liars. Yes, they spin things bearishly. I don't see the major logical leap from Persons not in the Labor Force to people dropping out of the labor force. Yes, I understand the difference but it's hardly as dishonest as you proclaim it to be. The labor force did decline more than previous months, and the Persons Not in the Labor Force was the largest absolute jump on record, the largest percentage increase in 30 years. Take that for what you will.
