    Congratulations Barack Obama and liberals on the 7.3% unemployment rate where over 300k dropped out of the labor force, 866,000 people became discouraged, the labor participation rate dropped to a 35 year low at 63.2%, and zero construction jobs were created. This booming Obama economy is staggering. Revisions to previous months jobs creation also occurred as 74k jobs were adjusted downward. Wonder when Obamabots are ever going to admit that Obamanomics is a disaster.

    The new liberal normal, higher part time employment, lower labor participation rate, high discouraged workers, stagnant economic growth, and high debt. Welcome to that European economic model.

    The Jobs Committee is hard at work. I hear they are meeting regularly discussing how to simulate industry and economic growth.

    Yeah, I keep hearing that they have a few meetings weekly at the golf course and talking at the turn between hole 9 and hole 10. They are doing a great job getting people to drop out of the labor force, becoming discouraged, and creating part time jobs. They will continue to pat themselves on the back for a job well done

    The point was that the benefit would be negligible. Even the trillion we spent on Iraq was a tiny amount of gdp. Syria would be 1/100th of that.

    A record 90 million people in the U.S. over the age of 16 are not in the labor force.

    Notice the lack of liberal responses to this thread and now you go and post this? That is a great way to drive Obamabots away, confuse them with data and facts. Only 90 million? Only up 10 million? But he is trying and if people would stop "hating" him the results would be better. Oh, by the way it is GW Bush's fault.

    Undoubtedly a sub-par report, but you're plainly incorrect in your wording. The 866k figure you cite is the cumulative number of those discouraged from seeking employment due to labor market conditions, not a month over month increase.

    Among the marginally attached, there were 866,000 discouraged workers in August, essentially unchanged from a year earlier. (The data arenot seasonally adjusted.) Discouraged workers are persons not currently looking for work because they believe no jobs are available for them.
