7.9%. Sad… so terribly sad. The obama camp must be in melt down. This is why they didn’t want it released. I’ll bet they rounded down to 7.9 as well. Again.. the real number is well over 15%. Had it dropped to 7.5% the election would have been over. However…the leftist main stream media will still go full bore and say “the economy made a big improvement of 175,000 jobs!!”. “Obama’s programs are working!!” It’s a disaster. Obama’s anti capitalist dogma is a disaster.
“American job creation improved in October with 171,000 new jobs but the unemployment rate moved higher to 7.9 percent, setting the stage for a final push to the finish line in the heated presidential campaign.”
Improved??? What the heck are you talking about?? Further down buried in the article..
But unemployment for blacks showed the highest increase in the survey, surging to 14.3 percent from 13.4 percent. Also, the average duration of unemployment climbed to a 2012 high of 40.2 weeks.
Yet the black American vote is going to go 95% Obama. Someone explain that to me….
