Sounds "skewed" to me. Some guy unskewed them and showed the unemployment rate is almost eleventy!!!!11!1

In all seriousness though, this is great news. Sounds like a damn good report, or as they're saying over at HotAir, "contradictory."

That awkward moment when you realize your entire campaign is based on a single data point and nothing more.

Here's a challenge: try to find this news on (Hint: it's between the headline about Biden's promise to hike taxes and the link to an opinion piece about why the jobs outlook is "grim.")

These unemployment numbers are so bad and so skewed and so "grim" that we pledge to take away the Fed's mandate to achieve full employment.

The right keeps pimping the meme that the workforce decreasing is a bad thing... but it's really a good thing, and a demographic certainty due to the baby boom. Many old folks who had held off retiring are finally feeling confident enough to retire, making room for young workers.

National News (CBS ?) this morning said that a lot of the 114,000 jobs created were part-time. No nealth care, no retirement, no vacation etc, etc.
The talking female head also said that it looks like people are more interested in making their house payments and are taking lower paying jobs so as not to lose the house.

re: #7 Steve

That is why we need Obamacare and Romeny is a LIAR when he says that his plan covers pre-existing conditions.

He lied about a bunch of things including the offshoring tax credit.

And if we could just cut all those fake bloated government jobs our unemployment rate would even be higher. Freedom!
