  •  I think any unemployment rate decline helps (2+ / 0-)

    It's 8.1.  We keep being told to fear it rising again, or at best stagnating where it is.  But it does neither, it just keeps falling.

    We just as easily could've had 250K jobs today and still 8.1, or even 8.2 or 8.3.  Maybe the media would've spun it as good news, but I think any good coverage would've been fleeting, and a rate actually climbing to 8.3 would eventually hurt more than help.

    Similarly, the rate declining eventually helps more than the jobs numbers hurt.

    I'm speaking, of course, politically, not on the economics.
