    The recovery continues....

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- American employers substantially stepped up their hiring in January, bringing the unemployment rate down for the fifth month in a row.

    Employers added 243,000 jobs in January, the Labor Department reported Friday, marking a pick-up in hiring from December, when the economy added 203,000 jobs.

    Meanwhile, the unemployment rate fell to 8.3%. That is the lowest since February 2009.

    Job growth was much stronger than expected. Economists surveyed by CNNMoney had forecast 130,000 jobs added in the month, and that the unemployment rate likely ticked up to 8.6%.

    Private sector added 257,000 jobs. After more than a year of "good, but...." jobs reports, the past couple months have been very strong.

    Anyone remember which wingnuts here guaranteed that unemployment would go back up after the holidays...the ones too stupid to comprehend the phrase 'seasonally adjusted'?

    Just goes to show that Republicans can not keep the economy down forever. Clearly they want the economy to be at its lowest point in this election year, but apparently their timing isn't any better than their ability to pick viable candidates for office.

    So mark this up to just one more Republican failure, they managed to knock the economy down, but in the face of Democratic work to fix things they have not been able to keep it down.

    Our economy is recovering in spite of anything Barry and the Offtones might be doing. When you look at the sectors in recovery and the types of jobs being created, it is clear Obama is having no positive impact whatsoever.

    A couple more quarters like this and the GOP will have a pretty hard time making their campaign mud stick to anything but their own faces.
