Since the jobs report sent everyone into a perpetual state of confusion set off by a huge change in the household survey, lets just take the advice and wait a month and see if we can get a better picture.

Santelli is a hero of wealthy Wall Street stockbrokers. His opinion isn't very relevant to the vast majority.

It's amazing how far people will go to cover obama's rear.

Let's see....supposedly, 50,000 jobs created over the last two months lowered the unemployment rate from 9.8% to 9%.

Unemployed is actually 9.9%, not 9% - and under-employed is 19.2%

and why is it crazy talk? Do you have any idea how many people are now working part time or in jobs that they are completely over qualified for? Obviously you do not.

The overall employment picture that came out yesterday is controlled somewhat by the weather conditions throughout our country right now. Let's see what the story is at the med or end of March.

The US would have to add 200,000 jobs every Month for 3 years straight to get the unemployment figures back to when Bush left office.
