1.8 Million more jobs and we'll be in good shape, but this is a most welcomed development.

We see reports like this that don't match reality and we also still see weekly initial unemployment numbers average more than 450,000 ... per week. Unemployment numbers are fake because they don't count "discouraged workers" which is a huge and growing number. We keep hearing the economy is improving from the government and media but for the average people we just don't see it. Now we have Greece in default and the EU starting to tumble. The outlook is not good but listening to the government and media its good times again.

Because it's an election year & the gov/media (one in the same?) wants their leader re-elected. It's so blatant it's disgusting.

When you have the 2nd worst unemployment in the US there's nowhere to go but up.

The question is, how far up. Is this going to be a triple dip after all the election year juicing of the economy by incumbents saving their rears.

I like how just one piece of encouraging evidence causes so many self-described conservatives to lose bowel control. Must be that "positivity" so many profess to project. And heaven forbid they consider the opinions of guys who actually get their economic projections correct at least some of the time.

Uh oh! You just linked to opinion by Krugman? On CDF? Are you completely nuts, off your rocker? Krugman is the anti-Christ to all the conservative CDF participants (who, btw, OWN CDF ... or didn't you know that?)

What I find remarkable is that the MSM has completely buried the real unemployment figures from the CBO that states the figure is still at least 10%, which debunks the 8.5% figure being celebrated as "progress."

The Obama administration still thinks they can fool people by lumping in seasonal hires and claiming, SEE!, SEE!, OUR WAY WORKS! But naturally, jobless claims will "unexpectedly rise" in the coming months.

Very true! But, Obama's poll numbers are on the rise! He has solved the economy!! Heck, he needs more than a second term.

Ok, here is the deal. BHO gets a second term. Joe Biden can have the next two terms. (I know the 7/11 clerks will vote for him.) Then, haul out Chelsea Clnton so we can have Hill and Bill pulling her strings for another 8 years! BY that time,no doubt we will have another Kennedy of age to round out the Century! Boy, are we lucky??

Is America great or what?
