AP: Unemployment Rate Under 8% by November

2012 May 3
by bc3b

Ignoring yesterday’s ADP report that only 119,000 new jobs in April, MSM (aka Re-elect Obama) seems to be moving into high gear reporting that (carefully selected) economists predict that unemployment will be at 7.9% by the November election. The selection of economists was probably similar to a +15 Democrat sampling in an ABC News-Washington Post poll.

AP also failed to report that the number of people in the workforce has declined by approximately three million in the past 10 years and that millions have simply stopped looking for work (which means that are no longer factored into the unemployment statistics).

The AP story did include some negative information about the economy (drop in housing prices and difficulty in finding jobs), but these were buried at the end of the article, where newspapers often cut the copy or where readers stop reading.

Expect the MSM cheerleaders to increase their activity as November nears.

To the untrained eye this appears to be a Bucs cheerleader. She’s really an AP reporter.

    Personally my observation is that the MSM cheerleaders are generally consistent with graphics the IP provides.

    You mean you don’t think Candy Crowley and Andrea Bitchell are hot?

    great thread, bc3b…but that cheerleader looks WAY too, um, intelligent to be an A/P reporter.

    that said, the “Official” unemployment rate WILL be 7.9%…and I have no doubt the A/P has been TOLD it will be 7.9%. Because the BLS is being TOLD it will 7.9%…no matter how many people they have to disappear from Labor Force.

    The REAL unemployment rate is well into double-digits…but with FIVE million people being removed (counting those who “disappeared” + the increase in working-age population), the BLS has been able to pretend it is improving. They just don’t have to pretend very hard for the A/P.

    OMG…I am still laughing having just read the “Life of Julia” fable being promoted by the Obama Regime.


    The only thing missing from what “Julia’s” life would be like under Romney is the part where she turns to drugs & prostitution, and eventually sells all her organs in order to pay for an operation for her dying mother.

    I was listening to Rush while getting gas and going to the bank (they needed to borrow money again). He was discussing the reviewers for Obama’s “autobiography” and talking about the excuses they were coming up with for his fabrications.

    The was a 22 cent difference in gas prices driving two miles down the same street. At 14 Mile Road it was $3.99. At 13 Mile Road it was $3.89 and at 12 Mils Road it was $3.77.

    Visually the two are ok. But as soon as they open their mouth its deboner as IP would lament. 😉

    Muskegon, MI has a 25 cents lead over Grand Haven’s gas prices which is 10 miles away.

    Hey, if a bunch of honkys and Latinos and a couple blacks can claim they are the Cleveland Indians, why can’t Elizabeth Warren claim she’s an Indian?

    My only complaint is that Paul does not go far enough and just flat out say to eliminate the DHS. His effort would still leave the VIPER program in place. But at least he has the guts to do what Americans are thinking.

    I am a little slow keeping up thanks to work. But it appears all the participtants in the attempted bridge bomb plot were all OWS — http://dailycaller.com/2012/05/02/repeat-the-cleveland-5-the-geniuses-who-tried-to-blow-up-a-bridge-for-the-99-were-all-occupiers/

    Third employee axed over Zimmerman edit. http://www.theblaze.com/stories/third-employee-fired-after-another-edited-george-zimmerman-911-tape-surfaces/

    I also have the germ of a Right Wing plot. Start scrubbing all video based on known facts. Where there are discrepancies start pounding the offending MSM outlet on their ‘journalistic ethics’. Keep it up long enough and either they will clean up or have no employees. Alinsky would be proud.

    Women always say that giving birth is way more painful than a guy getting kicked in the nuts. Here is proof that they are wrong.

    A year or so after giving birth a woman will often say, “It’d be nice to have another baby”.

    You never hear a guy say, “I wouldn’t mind another kick in the nuts “.

    Case closed.

    Which fosters a corollary to my suggestion in 16. Tea Party types ought to show up early disguised as OWS types and hand out pro Tea signs. Slogans, no pics/logos. Since the idiots can’t understand what they are holding up it should work. 🙂

    1700+ secret warrants and like 16k NSL’s last year.

    “Russia’s most senior military officer said Thursday that Moscow would pre-emptively strike and destroy U.S.-led NATO missile defense sites in Eastern Europe if talks with Washington about the developing system continue to stall.

    “A decision to use destructive force pre-emptively will be taken if the situation worsens,” Russian Chief of General Staff Nikolai Makarov said at an international missile defense conference in Moscow attended by senior U.S. and NATO officials.”

    Anyone actually believe this? Sounds like BS for domestic consumption, though something tells me comments like that would not have happened in the past.

    KH, 24,

    Am I wrong or didn’t Obammy in his first year pretty much tell the Poles and Czechs that we would not deploy the missile defense? Which if I am right raises the question as to pre-empt what? Sort of like sending a cruise missile to kill a camel…

    26, Its obvious that the FBI was intent on preventing coordination (the date of seizure is significant) rather than just grabbing data off the box. If all they wanted was the data they could have shown up with a eSATA DLT assembly, plugged it in, taken over the console operations and just streamed the data off.

    I don’t like supporting progressive causes but this smells to me like a situation that the proper lawyers ought to be involved. Patriot Act or no, this does not pass the smell test. If the FBI had invoked the PA I doubt they would have returned the hardware. A case of theft??

    bc #12 – is the following what you mean?


    Kinda cleared things up for me . . . .

    28 – Whole point was there was no data on the box just as the owners told the fbi before they came and seized it.
