RNC Delivers It's Take On Today's Blow Out Job Report

Riiiiiiiiiight, Reince. We can surely count on your crew to produce jobs





The Republican National Committee has delivered its take on today's blow-out jobs report. Courtesy of Reince Priebus. And it's hilarious. You can tell by the historical chart above just how serious the GOP is in the matter:
“The months of incremental job gains we’ve witnessed are not enough.

Creating 300,000 jobs in one month shouldn’t be a new high; it should be the minimum we expect. Today’s jobs report shouldn’t be an aberration; it should be the norm. Sadly, it’s not. The Obama-Clinton Democrats have prioritized other things like ObamaCare regulations, energy regulations, and small business regulations. Translation: they pushed job-killing policies when we needed job-creating policies.

“Thankfully, the American people spoke out last month and sent a Republican majority to the Senate, so next year we can begin passing the pro-growth, pro-jobs legislation that has gone nowhere in the Democrat Senate. That includes the Keystone Pipeline. Soon, it will be up to President Obama to decide if he wants to stand with American workers or continue siding with liberal special interests.”

Sure, Reince. If Mitt McCain were president and today's job numbers—and the ones for the rest of the year—were announced, y'all would be demanding Congress allocate funds for bronze sculptures of the guy placed in every state capital, with offsets to pay for them from the Head Start program.
The good news underlying today's report is that we are gradually seeing an end of the acute economic crisis that took away people's savings and homes along with their jobs. And that means there is space to deal with the chronic economic problems that pre-date the Great Recession.

We are still not where we need to be seven years after the recession wrecked the hopes and dreams and tenuous financial well-being of so many Americans. We don't have policies in place to ensure it doesn't happen again. The duration of long-term unemployment is still 50 percent higher than the pre-recession peak. Unemployment among African Americans is still outrageously high. The unemployment rate, however you calculate it, is still way beyond anything that could be considered full employment. The majority of new jobs pay less and provide fewer benefits than the ones that were lost. And while there appears to be positive movement on the wages front, Americans are for now barely keeping up with the official inflation rate.

These—and other related issues—need to be dealt with. There are, to be sure, many elected Democrats who ought to be retired because they are not up to dealing with them. But listening to Republicans say they are the ones to fix things given their abominable record adds new meaning to stand-up comedy.

They've stood in the way of every job-creating initiative the Obama administration has put forth. They've fought against measures designed to improve workers' lives, such as increases in the minimum wage. So hard have they fought against reforms that proposals like the Employee Free Choice Act, which would have made it easier for people interested in unionizing to do so, never even managed to emerge from congressional committee.

Saying things would be better if Republicans were in charge conveniently ignores history and the fact that today, as usual, they have no agenda for making things better for the 99 percent, only for the 1 percent. And they prove it every time they get hold of the reins.
Thanks from LongWinded and Hollywood

Did Priebus just promote Hillary to VP? I didn't think he had the power to do that.

'Spain it to me...

If a guy gets his hours cut so the boss guy is exempt from the AHCA...and then this guy goes out and gets a second job...also under the hourly cutoff...then that's a new job, right? I guess this is one of Obama's more successful job creating initiatives...


You want fries with this answer, Skews??? Better get 'em while they're hot. "Do you want refritos with that?" is next once all those new jobs are created by the legal illegals......

There is no explaining anything to a brainless twat such as yourself. You live in la la land where no cogent thoughts can reach.

Then there is the reality.

Hold on: Jobs report wasn't so great after all

Quote:


Consider it a brutal lesson in government math.

Friday's turbocharged jobs headline came thanks to seasonal adjustments and other wizardry at the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which reported that U.S. job growth hit 321,000 even as the unemployment rate held steady at 5.8 percent.

Those numbers, courtesy of establishment survey estimates, sound nice on the surface, and they certainly present reasons if not for unbridled optimism then at least confidence that the job market continues to mend and is on a pretty steady trajectory higher.

However, the household survey, which is an actual head count, presents details that show there's still plenty of work to do.

A few figures to consider: That big headline number translated into just 4,000 more working Americans. There were, at the same time, another 115,000 on the unemployment line. That disparity can be explained through an expanding labor force, which grew 119,000, though the participation rate among that group remained at 62.8 percent, which is just off the year's worst level and around a 36-year low.

But wait, there's more: The jobs that were created skewed heavily toward lower quality. Full-time jobs declined by 150,000, while part-time positions increased by 77,000.

There were 80,529,000 people not in the labor force when Obama took office, in November the number was 92,447,000. The population was 306 million in 2009, and it is 320 million now. The labor force participation rate is 62.8 %.

Thought some of you would interested in what Canada thinks of the Obimbo administration:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Calgary Sun
Fasten Your Seatbelts, Canada, and Get Ready For the Battle For America
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 07, 2014
BY MARC PATRONE, SUN NEWS
America is on the edge of a second revolutionary war. It may not be bloody like the first one, but it will be hugely important. Some might suggest it’s more a civil war, but with liberty and the constitution hanging in the balance, revolution seems a more appropriate comparison.
There are no British troops or monarchy to fight this time. The ‘shot heard around the world’ wasn’t fired from a musket, it came from the ballot box. Americans have taken a long hard look at the kind of fundamental transformation promised by Barack Hussein Obama and the Democrat party and they want nothing to do with it.
The Republican victory suggests Americans are more than just unhappy with the direction the country is headed. Such was the devastating scope of the electoral debacle for the Democrats that it appears Americans are mobilizing for war against the Obama agenda. They are only now truly beginning to understand the threat to liberty he presents.
What’s so deeply troubling, albeit not entirely unexpected, is the disdain, arrogance and contempt with which this president dismissed the results. “So to everyone who voted, I want you to know I hear you. To the two-thirds of voters who chose not to participate in the process yesterday, I hear you, too,” he said.
Meaning what? He seems to be suggesting that by not voting, the majority of Americans agree with what he’s doing.
Terrifying? You bet.
It’s taken six years, but the ugly truth about Obama’s contemptuous attitudes toward the people who elected him twice is becoming all too evident.
Lame duck? Guess again. The man probably realizes that a chance to remake the U.S. according to his radical far left view of the world may not come around again. His time is running out. Obama’s ‘nuclear’ option is amnesty for millions of illegals. He expects those illegals will become dependents of the state, thus stacking the electoral deck in favors of Democrats by promising the new ‘wards of the state’ a suite of entitlements.
The depth of this destructive agenda is clear, rip off trillions in wealth (which Obama believes was stolen anyway) and give it to those whom he considers ‘victims’ of capitalism. The beneficiaries will naturally reward the radical left with voter support into perpetuity. Voila, the left-wing dream of a one-party state is realized.
This has been decades in the making. The left has infiltrated, corrupted, and subverted the institutions that had, up to now, served as pillars supporting freedom, democracy, and prosperity. The bulk of what was once a free and independent media has been reduced to little more than an arm of the Democrats. That tens of millions of Americans are flocking to Fox News, Conservative talk radio and online news sites is heartening but doesn’t change the fact most TV, print media outlets are in an advanced state of putrid, cancerous liberal rot.
The same cancer has undermined the school system, ‘big labor,' the environmental movement, and the Hollywood culture machine.
Even capitalism itself has succumbed to the lure of easy government money, power and cronyism.
So who is left to fight for freedom? The rest of America.
Obama will attempt to ram through amnesty, climate change, wealth redistribution and he will ignore the constitution to do it. Republicans have assured Obama impeachment is off the table. And so the battle lines are drawn.
Fasten your seatbelts Canada, we’re about to get a front-row seat to the battle for the soul of America and indeed the free world. Let’s hope that, as in the first revolutionary war, that the right side wins.
If it doesn’t, we all lose.

An objective look from our neighbor. An insight about this corrupt government that most of us hold, and those that didn't are beginning to understand.
Thanks from Tony and Rasheed

Wow.. This Job report is just AN AVERAGE GW BUSH jobs report.

GW Bush averaged ~ 250K jobs / month .. over 8 years.

Bureau of Labor Statistics Data


Many months were 300,000+ jobs created.. ROFLMBO.

OBAMA BEST IS BUSH'S AVERAGE.

I am not tooting Bush's horn, I am pointing out.. Obama reality.

Bureau of Labor Statistics Data
250,000 x 12 x 8 = 24,000,000

Here's the actual numbers.

2001 -30 72 -25 -281 -38 -129 -115 -158 -242 -324 -294 -171
2002 -142 -133 -19 -80 -8 57 -85 -15 -60 125 10 -158
2003 94 -153 -210 -45 -11 10 23 -41 102 196 16 124
2004 161 44 332 249 307 74 32 132 162 346 65 129
2005 134 239 134 363 175 245 373 196 67 84 337 159
2006 277 315 280 182 23 77 207 184 157 2 210 171
2007 238 88 188 78 144 71 -33 -16 85 82 118 97
2008 15 -86 -80 -214 -182 -172 -210 -259 -452 -474 -765 -697

The 1st 4 years ended up with -105,000 jobs, or a net loss of 105,000 jobs.

The 2nd 4 years ended up with +2,150,000 jobs, or a net gain of 2,150,000 jobs.

Add these two numbers and you get a net job gain for the eight years of the Bush Admin of 2,045,000 jobs.

2045000/96= 21302

21,302 jobs created on average per month, not 250,000.

Keep in mind that these are just raw numbers, I didn't adjust for first Januaries even though that, as you'll see, would push Bush's numbers even lower.

Here's Obama's raw numbers.
2009 -798 -701 -826 -684 -354 -467 -327 -216 -227 -198 -6 -283
2010 18 -50 156 251 516 -122 -61 -42 -57 241 137 71
2011 70 168 212 322 102 217 106 122 221 183 164 196
2012 360 226 243 96 110 88 160 150 161 225 203 214
2013 197 280 141 203 199 201 149 202 164 237 274 84
2014 144 222 203 304 229 267 243 203 271 243(P) 321(P)

1st four years of Obama add up to +656, or a net gain 656,000 jobs

Partial 2nd four years of Obama add up to +4981, or a net gain of 4,981,000 jobs.

Add these two numbers and you get a net gain of 5,637,000 jobs for Obama's tenure thus far.

5637000/71 = 79,394 on average per month.

So you're pretty fuckin' wrong on both counts lol. Wayyyyy off the mark with Bush's numbers.

There were six. Obama's had four, but his 2nd term isn't up, is it.
