    For Obama it is great news. Not for the unemployed. Only 90,000 jobs created while 386,000 left the work force. Why doesn't the labor department get it over with and say everyone left the work force so Obama can proclaims 0% unemployment.

    Obama can't get the economy going in the right direction after 3+ years with any consistancy, I think it's time to give somebody else a chance to get the job done. Obama appears to be in over his head with his ideology blinding him along the way.

    It's great news (for Neo-Marxists)! This is the worst economy since the FDR Depression!

    46.7MM on Food stamps

    23MM unemployed

    Obama needs one more term to "finish the job"

    8.1% is close to Boosh's 7.8%

    I know and if only another million would give up looking for work and we will be there. Isn't it amazing. I'm so excited for Obama. I think Liberal soldiers should get out and tell workers to stop looking then you could even get it down to 5 or even 4%. Why stop at Bush when you can reach for Clinton.

    And the damn REPUBLICANS STILL filibuster and obstruct against ALL jobs bills. The American Jobs Act and the highway bill are buried in the Repub House. They have 13 "working" days left before the election. Anyone wanna bet they'll suddenly start voting FOR jobs?

    Hell no. They're entire "jobs plan" is to keep millions out of work in order to put one man out of a job. The only thing we can expect from Boehner and the rest of the pub bums is to continue their business as usual - golf and photo ops where they'll lie about the president. Their lies work because so many Americans do not know that we have three branches of government.

    Are we better off?

    2008 Under Bush:
    Mar...... -112,000
    Apr....... -215,000
    May....... *216,000
    Jun....... -231,000
    Jul........ -259,000
    Aug...... -294,000

    Four Years Later Under Obama:
    Mar….. +120,000
    Apr….. +115,000
    May….. +69,000
    Jun….. +80,000
    Jul….. +163,000
    Aug….. +96,000

    Anyone planning to vote FOR Mitt will be voting AGAINST jobs.

    9000 of those jobs were a result of a strike resolution.

    Eight percent unemployment is the new norm.

    A lot of jobs aren't needed anymore due to technology.

    And a lot of jobs are either outsourced or insourced to take advantage of cheap labor.

    Welcome to the realities of the 21st century.
