    WASHINGTON (AP) — Unemployment rates fell in 43 states in November, the most number of states to report such declines in eight years.

    The falling state rates reflect the brightening jobs picture nationally. The U.S. unemployment rate fell sharply in November to 8.6 percent, the lowest since March 2009. The economy has generated 100,000 or more jobs five months in a row — the first time that's happened since 2006, before the Great Recession.

    In the world of business, to make the day relevant, any more: You have to say something about Europe.

    The Republicans have taken a two-month tax holiday: And tried to turn into a referendum on the Bush Tax Cuts. No one knows why they would do that. The House Speaker is so like not, that German Business leaders are likely embarassed that one of their own heritage is him.

    The Stimulus worked, and is now working. The Ivy League famously had underestimated even the depth of the downturn, following that up with no seeming need to want to prime the state and local area tax bases with jobs.

    Disasters happened: Thank some deity(?)!

    the economy requires approx. 130K jobs to just meet the employment requirements for new entrants into the work force.

    you have been told this, at least 5 times that I know of, why the hell are you so hard headed? really? seriously? why?

    Remember, you're talking to a guy who thinks hot weather in the summer is proof of global warming.

    21 months of private sector job growth.
    GDP has been growing since 2009.
    The stock market has doubled since 2009.
    Americans net worth is up $9 trillion dollars since 2009.
    Americans have paid off $1 trillion dollars of personal debt since 2009.
    Auto sales were up 13.9% in November.
    Pending home sales were up 10% in October.
    Retail sales were up 16% over the Thanksgiving weekend.
    Unemployment is down to 8.6%
    The deficit problem has been solved with the expiration of the Bush tax cuts in Dec. of 2012 and the automatic spending cuts that kick in in Jan. of 2013.

    Bin Laden and Gaddafi are dead.

    Obama has done a very good job.
