    Fact. 114,000 were created.

    In order for a there to have been a drop from 8.1 to 7.8, over 800,000 jobs would have had to be created.

    obama is depending on public stupidity.

    It's very easy for obama to stand there unopposed and unchallenged and say that Romney is a liar. Romney called obama a liar to his face. obama's response was to hang his head. obama could have bested any of the "guilty dog" you tube videos.

    God obviously wants Obama reelected. He's changed the laws of mathematics and the universe to make it happen.

    100,000 now equals 800,000.

    The fact that the Administration would allow such easily discredited numbers to be pushed shows which campaign is desperate. Obama knows that presidents with unemployment numbers over 8% don't usually get elected. Document if you will, where the additional 800,000 jobs suddenly appeared from.

    Apparently all the jobs market needed for a nice turnaround is Obama getting whipped in a debate. Why didn't the great one himself think of this earlier?

    With this logic, when we lose 100k jobs, ue will go to 4 percent. But what does anyone expect with an admin that has numerous scandals hanging over.

    The only thing that could have made these numbers better - a rightwing birther-esque conspiracy theory about them - has happened right on cue.

    Poll skewing conspiracy theory last week, UE report skewing this week...

    ...do you have one ready for next week yet?

    Obama lost the debate. :cool: It's an inexact science so someone in the Labor Dept. decided to make it a little more inexact than usual on the boss's behalf.:D

    Where did the 800,000 jobs come from that it would take to drop that far? Please be specific.
