You're all so desperate for ANY good news out of this administration that you're willing to lower your standards to nothing to get it. ADP already revised last month down to 88k jobs. UE rate will come in around 7.7% due to even more Americans not being counted in that figure, and then the BLS statisticians can be reunited with their families.
Obama has achieved a positive swing of around 1,000,000 jobs/month over 3.5 years. I call that at least 'decent' performance. We all want better, but very few righties ever acknowledge that Obama took over an economy in a tail spin and has had effectively 0 support & cooperation from congress for most of his term.
If you can at least acknowledge the above, perhaps we could have a real conversation.
