    A lot of people are questioning the numbers. Regardless, it will be old news by Nov 6.

    Chicago's attempt at an October Surprise. Anything to stop the debate free fall. Not going to work.

    Who do you think comes up with the data on shrinking median wages that is used constantly by Cons on this site? How about the number of individuals no longer looking for a job?

    Your Government is blatantly lying to you and you could care less

    They lied about Benghazi, what makes you believe they are telling the truth now? I mean seriously, these numbers are going to wither under scrutiny and calls are going to start being made for this laughable patchwork "7.8%" to be revised before the election. This is laughable Soviet style propaganda.

    114K Jobs added and the rate droppedhalf a %? Really? I mean are you kidding me right now? Disability has doubled since Obama took office. People are unemployed longer than ever before. People digging and dumpsters and eating rats aren't even being counted in the Labor Market. Gas prices are spiking over 5 dollars a gallon in CA and skyrocketing all over the country. Food Prices and other Commodities are risen in price by more than 25%.

    This is what a real October Surprise looks like. Welcome to Chicago Politics.

    According to bls,the economy added 181,000 jobs in July, rather than 141,000. And added 142,000 jobs in August, rather than 96,000.So that pretty well fly's into the face of your assertion that "This is laughable Soviet style propaganda "

    Odd how for the last 40 months the administration has said to not put too much stock in any one month's numbers, but as soon as the numbers improve a little, we should take it as gospel.

    I'm happy for the people who have found work, I just hope the numbers being reported are accurate, and not just more political theater.

    It's a telling tale when people would rather see bad numbers over improving numbers.
