WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Employers created 169,000 jobs last month and the unemployment rate fell unexpectedly to 4.9 percent, its lowest since August 2001 -- reminders of the economy's vigor before Hurricane Katrina.

While August's job-creation tally fell slightly short of the 190,000 gain expected by Wall Street, job growth in June and July was stronger than previously thought, the Labor Department said on Friday, bumping up its tally for those two months by a combined 44,000.
That is awesome, 4.9% sounds so much lower than 5%. Hey depressingO unemployment is now 4.9%, wooohooo.

"yes that's true, flaffeldorp, but bushieness is next to godliness, flinkflap, unemployment data is being systematically manipulated by a republican operative at the behest of none other than your fearless squeeky clean leader, frothingslosh, beep, beep, beep, back up the truck and flim flam."
