This is all about manipulating the numbers like they did in 2012.  They want it below 6% and in the last report before the election, it will be.

Pure rope a dope smoke and mirrors.
People are working 2 and 3 jobs while the obamites are sitting on their asses sucking up freebies.
U6 is over 12% and I'll bet it's actually more than that.

In 1993 Clinton raise taxes.  Rush told me that would kill an economy still struggling from recession, and there are some studies that show the economy was slowed down, but the memory of the voters is of a time of great growth.  Clinton was re-elected to my dismay.  I no longer count out the incredible power of the American workers and businesses to overcome the obstacles to success that government inflicts upon them.  Obamacare hasn't killed the US economy yet.  It may take more time for the grace periods, bestowed upon the favored by our King the law maker Obama, to expire just after the elections for the real dump on the economy.  But it may happen that the economy just keeps chugging along.
"Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans."  -  President Donald J Trump

Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military? Really!.....

That is exactly what they did in 2012, and is what they are doing now.  It's so predictable and the media will dutifully comply with tooting horns and confetti and the great recovery - all for the State and the State for all!!!

The Senate is too important for them to lose and I think they are going to pull out all the stops for this election.  They get away with it every time and they will again this time.  This Unaccompanied Alien Children thing is just the tip of the iceberg as to what they've got planned to keep the Senate.  The economy is being propped up and the numbers are being fudged to achieve this.  They are bald-faced liars and I do not believe anything they tell me - I expect every "event" from here to election to be part of this plan.

Huge numbers of new jobs are of the part-time variety. 

So far in 2014, 926K full-time jobs have been added to the US economy, along with 646K part-time jobs.

In June, the Bureau of Labor Statistics' Household Survey was even more dramatic: full-time jobs decreased by 523K to 118.2 million, while part-time jobs soared by 799K to over 28 million.

That is not a recipe for a healthy, growing economy.

At the same time, wage growth has been stagnant:



The Obama pom-pom wavers at MSNBC and CNBC can cheer all they want, it does not change the fact that wages are going nowhere, while the reported inflation rate of 2% is a joke and a purposeful lie. Our official government reports now exclude both food and energy prices, as though no one might be adversely affected by them.

Perhaps in New York and Washington, where public transportation and limousines abound, and where salaries are more than double the national average, such pedestrian concerns are only distant annoyances.

But they are killing the rest of us.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

"Jobs uptick".  :laugh:

A gallon of regular gas is over four dollars here. Manipulating the economic numbers for their Dear Leader is not going to help them this year.

Food prices are skyrocketing.  I was looking for some chicken at the store yesterday (I prefer to cook my own for lunches rather than buy prepackaged stuff full of only God knows what chemicals).  Two employees were putting out some other meat and one commented how no one was buying anything this year for the 4th.  The other replied because everything is "too f***ing expensive" and "the rich don't shop here."
