In the end, I think the numbers are what they are. Pretty tepid job growth. Not bad, but not great. About in line with what we've been seeing for the past year.

The number was basically in line with estimates. As recently as Wednesday, the estimate was for a range of 110,000--120,000.

Seriously, Jack, if you are going to accuse the President of manipulating jobs numbers, provide some evidence other than the fact that they tell a story you don't want to hear. "

Seriously, is there a single issue you as a group do not lie about?

It is not the 114,000 jobs that Welch is saying is a lie.

You have to know that, yet you lie about it. Isn't that a little embarrassing to knowingly lie about everything, and to know the folks that do not call you out on it, know you are lying, but they lie so much, they just accept it as status quo?

What everyone is calling a lie, is that 7.8 is the new percentage. A humongous drop below a critical threshold, when not enough jobs were created to keep the number from going up!

I know I am not telling anyone anything they do not already know. However, it is just all this lying that I chime in anyway.
