Obama an election boost??

Whoever wrote the headline, must not have read the article.

Nothing there to boost his election prospects.

Nothing at all.

Yes. I'm sure those numbers are accurate! No really! And Obama was not in America! Michelle is such a beautiful woman. Nancy Pelosi loves America. Obama quit smoking. And yes, pigs can fly.

Uh Huh and what will it be revised down to? For the past 5 or 6 months the jobs report comes in and then is quietly revised DOWN. Last month a paltry 80,000+ jobs were created and that was revised down to only 60,000+ so we have to wonder just what is the real number? Unemployment UP to 8.3% with real unemployment now at 15% and the spinmeisters are trying to say things are "Trending up". Well yeah, they MAY be going up, but the actual number needed each month just to keep up with population is 250,000 jobs. The DNC and Obama spinners are still trying to pass this off as creating jobs in a positive way - it's not, Obama, with his anti-business and over regulation micro management style is KILLING JOB CREATION not stimulating it. He said "We tried it my way and it worked", really, this is better than the average 5% unemployment we had under Bush? Really? Only in Obamaland is that true.

Exactly my thought! A boost? Only the far left Guardian could possibly think that the paltry 163,000 jobs (to be revised down to around 120,000 or less I'll bet) is a BOOST! Unemployment UP, consumer confidence DOWN, GDP a paltry 1.2% or so and the left sees this as a boost. They are delusional.

Tragic out comes seem to dog obama. Unemployment rate rises to 8.3%. Most Economists predict that Unemployment will reach 8.5% before the Election.

By the election Voters will have a clear choice to continue to Fail miserably with more of Obama's anti business agenda madness or try something new.

UNEMPLOYMENT INCREASED!

Good news for Obama!

The media hyping Obama, and blistering Romney.

NO in NOvember!

OUT with all Democrats!

Harry 'you're guilty UNTIL YOU PROVE your innocent'
Reid.

Obama and Elizabeth Warren: You didn't build that!

You drive on roads you didn't build, you get taxed for every mile you drive.

Additional tax for driving IN the city-DAILY congestion 'fee'(that means TAX)

For those with young children or grandchildren- their advancement and future will be STUNTED under Democrats.

Democrats will bind their ability to strive and ACHIEVE.

Obama-could handle everyday work life, let his wife support him and their family.

Obama-has SEALED his records; lies to the American people, REFUSES to take questions that HAVEN'T been submitted to him prior to interview, press conference.

NO in NOvember
NO to OWEbama
NO to ALL DemoNcRats

Even these figures are not correct - they are NOT COUNTING the people who are out of unemployment - they still CAN NOT FIND JOBS but they are counted off the unemployment rolls - with them counting them as having jobs. If the fact was know there are still millions out of jobs and according to the Dems we are doing fine.

1. Uneducated
2. racist haters
3. what the working taxpayer to nsupport their lazy scum azzes
4. UNEDUCATED!
5. Too many more reasons to list.........

L O L, L O L, ROTHFLMAO. As I said, the left is delusional. 22 months of negative job growth and the loony left, who apparently have no business or economic education, think it's good. This is the FIRST month this year that more than 100,000 jobs have been created and unfortunately that is about 150,000 jobs TO FEW! Get an education idiot and then post.

Agreed. Leave it to the RINO nutters to whine about jobs being created. Quite frankly the constant hope for failure coming from them is becoming an expected yawn-fest.

Attention inability!!! What's fascinating is watching obama lie to America and think he's getting away with it. His sleazy spin on jobs and the economy may impress useful idiots like yourself but for the rest of us he's a self-serving worthless lying marxist turd...just like his mentor bill ayers. Your job on this forum is to prove me wrong...have at it, douchebagger.
