If you think this is good news, you're competing with a doornail for the highest level of dumb. But, like you, the American electorate eats what the media feeds them, so 114k job growth and a reduction in the unemployment rate, while ignoring the participation rate and the actual jobs that were the reason is just perfect. Thanks, Mr. President, you've saved us!
Wake the **** up and read. Of course, your president promised that if we implemented the stimulus (remember that?), we'd be at 5.6% right now. Oops! It's nearly all part time jobs that don't even qualify to be called 'non-farm payroll'. Do yourself a favor and google 'U-6 rate', although people in denial will choose NOT to, i'm sure.
Crap report. 114k jobs growth would be super--in 1962.
