Friday’s better-than-expected jobs report sparked stock futures and conspiracy theories.

The U.S. added a scant 114,000 new jobs in September, but the unemployment rate fell below 8% for the first time since President Barack Obama took office in a potential jolt to the election.

I agree.
Imagine an ad that hits emotionally...FEEL

“Which feels right to you, do you feel like unemployment is 7.8% or 14.7%...I think you know the right answer...what it feels like to you...well, Paul Ryan and I aim to change that feeling to what a real recovery feels like”...

See how many times FEEL is used...I think that would work!

Excellent idea! I was thinking something along those lines myself but your "FEEL" approach makes it very effective.

Romney and the Republicans ought to just start using U-6 as it’s a more accurate assessment of the true unemployment situation, though probably still understated.

They have no fear or shame. How do we stop them?

With stopping power.

So if you question the government now, they call it a conspiracy theory. Just another way to shutdown all opposition. These clowns would have you think Welsh is up there with 9/11 truthers.

Personally I’m just impressed that Welch is tweeting.

Fox's evening lineup tonight featured several pinheads who were taking Jack Welch apart.....and generally protecting Obama's phoney labor statistics.

On his show, O'Reilly spouted his usual "fair and balanced" crap which is really his own brand of moral equivalency, implying "so what" if Obama lied during the debate because "Romney lied too".

Watching Fox tonight made me ill except for a former FBI guy who succinctly set the Bloviator right in his place on the mishandling by the administration of the crime scene in Libya. Again, O'Reillybama was on the State Department's and Obama's side on the issue, being very cool and distant with the totally-informed intelligence guy who didn't share O'R's view.

Lou Dobbs put Jack Welch down tonight, also. Frankly, I don't care to trust any of Dobb's analysis any more, and I haven't for a long time now. He's no conservative, except when, like O'Reilly, he plays conservative to appear to be "fair and balanced" for the Fox audience.
