unemployment drops

Mikey-Likes-lt | Dec 7, 2012 08:47 AM ET Of course everyone wishes it was 300k or whatever, but the fact of ;the matter is that yesterday, and a half hour ago, the stock market expected this morning`s report to say 93k and it came in at 146k. Rally on!

cntrlfrk | Dec 7, 2012 08:48 AM ET ` More proof that Obama doesn`t need any additional spending for his Welfare Groupies. Thank GOD the Republicans are fighting hard to get the economy back on track so we can create good jobs instead of raising more taxes to send more jobs to China like Obama wants. Hang in there America! The Republicans are fighting for a better future for you and your children!!

TommyTwoTrain | Dec 7, 2012 08:48 AM ET How can the jobs created be down while the rate is down? Cant believe any of it.


EugeneDAlessio | Dec 7, 2012 08:52 AM ET It was Santa Claus.....It`s a Wonderful Life..... now see if everyone down on Wall St can wish they were never born and we will have a very happy holiday........they should hang you crooks on the christmas trees around the country so we all could have a holly jolly christmas

jescott418 | Dec 7, 2012 08:52 AM ET Its great how the unemployment rate get`s better by people falling off the grid. After the emergency unemployment benefits go away this month. I am sure it will drop even more. Good for us.

hawkman69 | Dec 7, 2012 08:55 AM ET Hey those 146,000 part-time christmas jobs will make everything all right. And as far as I`m concerened it everybody in Wshington, not just one party. Their all as useless as a pair of t*ts on a boar pigs a$$.

Good for us.====================== If you were laid off at age 55 and have collected unemployment for two years and can`t find a job, it`s called early retirement

Antispeculator | Dec 7, 2012 08:55 AM ET Confused why the unemployment rate dropped? The same, favorite BLS adjustment - a drop in the labor force participation rate which declined by 0.2% to 63.6% once again, as the number of people out of the labor increased by over 540K to 88,883,000. So, 540,000 people drop off and viola unemployment drops! Only a brain dead Obama voter would think that this is good!
