President Obama Gets Some Good News

President Obama got some good news today. The new jobs report is out and the unemployment rate dipped below 8 percent. More below from The Associated Press:

The U.S. unemployment rate fell to 7.8 percent last month, dropping below 8 percent for the first time in nearly four years and giving President Barack Obama a potential boost with the election a month away.

The rate declined from 8.1 percent because the number of people who said they were employed soared by 873,000 — an encouraging sign for an economy that's been struggling to create enough jobs.

The number of unemployed Americans is now 12.1 million, the fewest since January 2009.

Obama's critics will say so what? They'll remind anybody who will listen that this administration has presided over the worst economic recovery since the Great Depression.

But remember: people are fickle. Undecided voters may very well see this as a step in the right direction (which it is) and entertain the possibility of forgetting the past and embracing the future.

After President Obama's debate performance the other night he could sure use some good news and he got it this morning.

There are far more serious facts to consider concerning President Obama's beliefs and alliances and the undercover purposes he has and will put in place if re-elected.
Rather than uphold the Constitution, he has dictatorially subverted/sidestepped it!?
His own words(if listening) and actions (if watching and not being brainwashed by interpretation of Liberals)describe his seeming contempt for the rule of law by the elected representatives/people.

The numbers they release NEVER seem to be ACCURATE. Over the last almost 4 years,we have learned the numbers don't add in the people that have given up looking for a job because they have been unemployed for so long,and these #s also reflect part time jobs,when the majority want full time,but can,t find them.Some say the ACTUAL NUMBER has been at 21%when everything is taken into account ACCURATELY & HONESTLY. America knows by now,that most of the MEDIA, CONSTANTLY & has since even beforte Obama was elected, covered up for him,would not & still DOES NOT report completely TRUE HONEST FACTS about hardly anything if they believe it reflects NEGATIVELY on Obama, who THEY HELPED PUSH into the PRESIDENCY! They will even just leave EXTREMELY VITAL INFORMATION OUT of stories,or NOT EVEN REPORT AT ALL!

One month in 4 years does not make a recovery. It has to be sustained growth and not just a fluke in the numbers.

Why would you want him to get some good news? I wish cbnnews wouldn't write anything that could be interpreted as support for this president.

Dave, it is very kind of you to publish this report. Unfortunately it was not possible to undo the horrific damage done by his predecessor in such a short period of time. Too many people today were nopt alive when President Roosevelt went through a somewhat similar economic crisis. They don't know it takes time to undue the doubts of money people and establish credability after a nation experiences such a horrific debacle like the one President Obama faced when taking office. This nation should be damned thankful we are not in the depths of an even more horrific depression that that experienced in the 1930's.Unfortunately too many people forget that since the days of herbert hoover every elected democratic president had to clean up a horrific mess left by his republican predecessor. This writer sees no change in this pattern with a romney for candidate.
