I'm confused. Is it because of Obama's policies finally taking hold or the consequences of the 2010 election. Liberals blamed the poor economy on the "teabagger" congress. Can a liberal, or better yet, an Obamatron (since they're much more pragmatic and loyal to Obama than a liberal) spin this one for me to make sure it maximizes credit for Obama?

Be careful here. Nearly half those "jobs" were from Verizon workers returning from a strike.

Do you have a source or did this just come to you in a vision?

With 20,000,000 unemployed or underemployed the 50,000 represent .05% of the problem

Neither. It is an interrogative.

It must have been all of those jobs created from shutting down offshore drilling, all but killing the coal industry, and continuing to support those unions that demand factory workers make enough money that the company they work for can't stay profitable by remaining in the USA.

If he undoes those regulations a few months before the elections, he can take credit for the improvement in the economy just in time for a 2nd term.

The recovery has stalled. Nobody's hiring, nobody's buying houses, the banks aren't lending and the market swings up and down only upon hearing news about government bailouts.
The republicans promised jobs but haven't done anything to change all the mistakes we've made in the last 20 years on free trade agreements, illegal immigration, over spending and the banking and monetary system allowed to run amok. Obama has been a vacillating rubber stamp and did everything Bush was doing policy wise.
We'll almost defintely see Obaam booted out of office but there maybe be a big election turnover and many incuments might go with him. Not a bad idea, probably.

103,000 jobs added because of "teabagger" congress (?)
Those job numbers aren't spectacular at all and are somewhat in-line with recent job reports.

If you are suggesting that the Tea Baggers in Congress should take credit for it, I would have to ask what laws they passed that would account for these jobs, as the House won't even bring up Obama's jobs bill? The House, who advertised jobs, jobs, jobs hasn't taken up a single bill that would improve employment.

Perhaps what did it was H.Con.Res. 3 (ih) Expressing the sense of Congress that the President should issue, and Congress should hold hearings on, a report and a certification regarding the responsibilities, authorities, and powers of his ``czars''?

or;
H.Con.Res. 4 (ih) Expressing the sense of Congress that the Supreme Court misinterpreted the First Amendment to the Constitution in the case of Buckley v. Valeo.

or;
H.Con.Res. 13 (rh) Reaffirming "In God We Trust'' as the official motto of the United States and supporting and encouraging the public display of the national motto in all public buildings, public schools, and other government institutions.

or;
H.Con.Res. 18 (ih) Urging the President to authorize the return to the people of the Philippines of two church bells that were taken by the United States Army in 1901 from the town of Balangiga on the island of Samar, Philippines, and are currently displayed at F.E. Warren Air Force Base, Wyoming.

or;
H.Con.Res. 25 (ih) Expressing the sense of Congress with respect to the Obama administration's discontinuing to defend the Defense of Marriage Act.
