    Will Obama try to claim it is a sign of an economic turn around? And if the seasonal hiring that happens every winter be claimed as proof of growth. Or will he admit that its a seasonal, natural spike and caution us to take the numbers with a grain of salt?

    I heard on the news last night for instance that last year BestBuy hired 30000 seasonal employees. This year they are projecting to hire less than 15000.

    Lol this prediction was only off by a couple weeks. As companies gear up for the holidays UE dropped by .1% and the democrats can't scramble to their microphones fast enough.

    well here in Florida i am pretty sure between 50-100,000 jobs should be created because of the winter season. and will it be all credited to Obama? at least the jobs wont be created by borrowing a trillion dollars from our kids.

    I gave my kids money to put in those buckets everytime I had cash on me and they were ringing the bell. We also buy food vouchers for the poor at the checkout.

    Yeah, I should look at the Ford Expedition..... I have a Mercury Grand Marquis... best car I ever owned; but it has 188,000 miles on it. Been in the shop once in 8 years.
