    Participation Rate is still way to low. Real unemployment still above 11%. Only 114,000 jobs added in Sept which means the rate will likely be revised back above 8% next month.

    I have been saying for 2 years that this administration would find a way
    to get a good UE number right before the election....

    I love being right.

    .

    Yeah, I was hopeful until I saw the 114,000 new jobs. We need 160,000 just to stay even, that means that a ton of people have stopped looking. Sheeee-it. Not good.

    I'm guessing Romney will, in about a month.

    Look at the numbers a bit. Only 114K new jobs.

    Bad.
