    New jobs exceeded expectations due to influx of seasonal temporary workers (UPS, FedEx, etc).

    Unemployment rate falls due to more leaving the employment market.

    I thought my sarcasm clearly suggested this.

    You're all right. No need to bitchslap our friends.

    On top of the seasonal issue, the expiration of that very long 99 weeks of unemployment and the consequent removal from these stats of everyone whose UE expires is only now becoming a recurring steady feed number for this stat that will artificially lower it every month for a long time to come.

    Too bad the MSM has taken up this standard as another lie in support of O Blah Blah. The leftist media has destroyed its credibility forever. They had a chance to fix the problem of liberal bias and policy making after the Dan Blather incident. they failed.

    Here's what I'm seeing. When Barry first came into office the bottom had
    fallen out of the economy with the housing crash, etc. On top of that it was
    painfully clear in the first couple of years that Barry's administration knew
    absolutely nothing about the business world other than book theory. A lot
    of businesses weren't so much hurting as much as just put everything on
    hold due to the uncertainty. A lot of CEOs and business owners went into
    a holding pattern waiting for the chaos to subside since there wasn't any
    clear sound and sustainable policy you could follow to make your business
    plans around.

    Now it is clear that Barry is being removed in 11 more month and the adults
    will finally be back in charge. The business world is feeling certain of this
    and so over the next few months I predict we will see hiring pick back up
    and capital projects moving again in anticipation of the pro-business party
    being back in control. They'll want to gear up now to be ready for the boom
    that's coming in 2013.

    The down side of this is that Barry will try to take credit for it.

    I think Kay's right. Most sane folks are beginning to believe that the nightmare that was Barry will end next year, and we can all go back to the business of being Americans. They are starting to loosen up.

    The 99 week-er will be a thing of the past as they find employment in '13 and '14. But their losses will never fully be recovered. They will work until as long as they can. They will have to.
