LOL, even in ultra-liberal Connecticut they get it. I've NEVER EVER seen a more lopsided poll! Check this out:
Sad that a President is allowed to get away with this. Oh, that’s right, it’s that pesky ‘race card’ of his.. I forgot! Silly me..
did it say how many had voted?
Holy S*...I didn’t even freep this poll.
Nope. Given the nice rounded numbers right now, it could be 9,925 “Yes” and 75 “No” for an even 10,000 votes.
THE EMPLOYMENT SITUATION -- SEPTEMBER 2012
The unemployment rate decreased to 7.8 percent in September, and total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 114,000, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Employment increased in health care and in transportation and warehousing but changed little in most other major industries.
Household Survey Data
The unemployment rate declined by 0.3 percentage point to 7.8 percent in September. For the first 8 months of the year, the rate held within a narrow range of 8.1 and 8.3 percent. The number of unemployed persons, at 12.1 million, decreased by 456,000 in September. (See table A-1.)
The Underemployed number did not change (still 14.7%.) The number of new jobs was 114,000. It was predicted by economists to be 110-120,000. It was predicted by the BLS to be 115,000. And, since we need about 205,000 new jobs in order to move the needle by -0.1 everyone was saying, 115,000 jobs will keep us at 8.2, maybe even uptick slightly.
This story is almost as flimsy as a "spontaneous demonstration" resulting in the death of the Ambassador to Libya. Not even victims of the American public school system can possibly suffer from the degree of innumeracy required to swallow this line.
The MSM and democrats want the USA to live in "their" Potemkin Village.
Ok, these numbers don’t make sense.
456,000 less unemployed than previous month
114,000 got jobs (probably part-time, low wage jobs)
So, where did the other 342,000 or 2.8% of the nation’s unemployed go in one month?
I know.. I know... they’ve retired and are now living the good-life in Kokomo. What a crock of ******!
.69% There’s a recovery underway
99.31 Someone’s “Cooking The Books”

But they did not get away with it. Their "attempt" to get away with it just highlighted to one and all how CORRUPT and SLEAZY they are.
FREEP THIS POLL ***PING!*** FRmail me if you want to be added or removed from the Fearless Poll-Freeping Freepers Ping list. And be sure to ping me to any polls that need Freepin', if I miss them. (looks like a medium volume list) (gordongekko909, founder of the pinglist, stays on the list until his ghost signs up for the list)
The dummies aren’t awake yet.
What is amazing to me is that a news organization is even asking whether the books are cooked. When the MSM starts to allow the premise that the One can be questioned, that’s progress folks!
CT, like NJ, has a lot of people that lost financial jobs in NYC. The high-tax states in the northeast have been hit hard as salaries have adjusted to “the new normal” ($.60 on the dollar) while our tax burdens haven’t.
I expect Obama to spend some time & money here; it is really bad.
The only way unemployment dropped to 7.8% is if the number of discouraged job seekers went way up. Why isn’t anyone reporting that?
I freeped the poll. I wonder why the really high % of people who don’t believe it. (simply because there are Libs who will believe anything). The only thought I can come up with is unemployment has touched everyone. Everyone knows people (or themselves) who can’t find a job. I know more people right now who keep looking and looking and looking. Thanks for posting POF!
