    Wow. Watch that spin; your head might twist off.

    Apparently they switched metrics - conveniently to the more optimistic count.

    The wingnut brigade is out in droves crying foul over the numbers and claiming ridiculous conspiracies are to blame. What a patriot.

    Its funny to watch the right wing openly gnash their teeth and weep openly because the nation added jobs.

    Some patriots they are.

    Unemployment finally on the way down is good news.
    Despite the credit taking and finger pointing, it probably has nothing to do with the president, or the anticipated president to be, but it is good news nevertheless.

    Yippee, another 32k per month. That still puts the average right around what is needed to just to keep up with population growth. Not a positive thing, no matter how hard your operative heart spins it.

    Switzerland and the homogeneous frozen tundra wouldn't be cherry picking?

    Here's Canada, not impressed:

    People are on food stamps because of the recession. It happens every time the economy gets bad. That's what they're for. But thanks for the deflection. And BTW, the Obama administration didn't release the new employment numbers; the labor dept did. But don't let that fact get in the way of a good conspiracy theory.

    Looks like price gouging to me. I'm still paying less than $4/gal. I suggest you shop around.
