    I'm loving the right's responses. They will accept an upturn in the US Economy to be an upturn of the market cycle, and will argue that the Stimulus project did nothing of any benefit. But when the US Economy goes downhill they will argue that the Stimulus project's effect on the market cycle has been understated.

    Sorry to piss on your wet blanket.

    The only people doing cartwheels over 162k jobs will be partisan leftists ecstatic that things haven't gotten worse for yet another month.

    If you want to know what an economic turnaround looks like, try three years of consistent job gains averaging somewhere between 250 and 300k a month. Since our first job gains last November, we're averaging what? 23k?

    No it's not. We created jobs last November and in January.

    How familiar are you with job growth ratios in regards to economic recoveries? More importantly, are you aware of the the how derivative of job growth behaves as its slope turns positive?

    Three Years of consistent job gains make sense in a healthy economy.

    With an economy that is suffering from all sorts of Pig diseases, you should be celebrating a monthly gain of 23k.

    I'll get the word out on the street to the 15 million people without jobs that they should be celebrating. Thanks.

    November was a decline of 11,000 jobs.

    November jobs report shows big improvement - Dec. 4, 2009

    In January the economy shed 20,000 jobs.

    The only way you would make any difference in that margin is if you came up with 15 million jobs. Don't be naive, celebrate the good as it happens.

    Case in point.

    You have no business stating that job growth in the tune of 160k... during this stage of the recovery... is anything less than significant. Given the state of fiscal and monetary policy, a maximum is nowhere on the horizon.
