The number that has our friends suspicious is the giant 873,000 leap in employment as measured by the "household survey." That's the biggest one-month increase in nearly 30 years, which certainly does deserve an explanation.

Campaigning on Friday, Mr. Obama touted the latest jobs report and repeated his refrain that the economy has created five million jobs during this recovery. What he didn't say is that in a normal recovery we would have nearly twice that number, and that the economy is still about 4.5 million jobs short of where it was in 2007.

He also didn't mention that those jobs aren't paying all that well because real median household income is down $3,040 since the recession ended in June 2009. That's right, the economy is growing but real incomes are still falling. Mr. Obama claims to be a tribune of the middle class, but he's presided over the worst economy for average workers since Jimmy Carter.

Economy is growing, corporate profits up, incomes falling.

Sounds to me like the "job creators" might be doing a little diverting of their own. :<)

Geese B......why always the conspiracy theorist???

Incomes fall because the quality of the jobs stink (mostly service oriented and part time), people are taking jobs beneath their grade, the pool of employees are vast (oversupply), and employers are holding on to their money waiting on more certainty from taxes, Obamacare, etc.

Manufacturing jobs continue to decline..........

We are in deep do without a major reset from the present business oppressive environment.

Come on B......join the moderates and embrace the need to reset the dialogue.

Geez duma, surely you can't even believe this nonsense. (No offense intended)

Moderates? Reset the dialogue?

The Republicans recently threw two staunch conservatives, Richard Lugar & Bob Bennett out of the Senate for their supposed "moderation" and have proven they are not even capable of dialogue within their own party with anyone not willing to embrace the nutty beliefs of their radical fringe and yet you delude yourself, or try to convince others, that somehow Mitt will be able to convince them to embrace a "moderate" approach to a dialogue with the Democrats.

I would love to hear your explanation for how you see that playing out. I know Mitt has a secret plan, but unfortunately, from what I can tell that is all he has (with everything) regrettably like I stated in my previous post and Mitt has aptly demonstrated in the past...talk is cheap.

Both parties have their nutcases B......how about Pelosi and Harry Reid??????

Romney is a moderate and he can and has worked with Democrats. The willingness of Repubs to do battle with Romney is minimal because they believe while he isn't far right, at least some balance is achievable.

Romney is being very astute in leaving some leeway for negotiation......no hard lines in the sand. He is a respected businessman, an outsider in Washington terms, less religious right issues, more reasoned and negotiable.

Most important perhaps, he hasn't soiled the well. There is opportunity to reset the dialogue with ALL parties. Obama would be battled to eternity largely because of his own arrogance and blame game style of politics.

Just reflect for a while on this B........we need to reset the dialogue......bring this country back together........Obama cannot do that ever again.

Even if you still respect OBama.......a reasoned person must see this as inevitable.

Our country is far more important than a single person's aspirations.

Let's reset the dialogue......together we shall succeed whereas divided we shall fall.

This really says it all, just like Mitch McConnell's statement from day one.

Our number one priority is...

or to put it another way...

our way or the highway.

But this time it would be different right? The Republicans would act responsibly?

Sorry duma, but it is never different.

If necessary, I'd rather go down with the ship than to submit to a band of pirates.

It might be noted that the evidence for this came from an environment where he had no choice if he wanted to get anything done since they controlled the legislature. More blowing in the wind, seems to me.

leaving some leeway for negotiation

Failure to provide a plan is not "some leeway" it is a lack of a plan.

It is really pretty funny for you to go on and on about resetting the dialog when your own posts on the subject are such a repetitious monologue.
