    ...announcing 20,000 jobs or some shit.

    I do appreciate the update and not to be a downer, but that always seems to happen! I always think it's a decent month, then splat.

      I see the ADP reports and then the real numbers come out and deflate my optimism.

      However, Meteor Blades explained a few comments down that in 10 of the last 18 months, the BLS jobs numbers have come out higher than the ADP estimates. Crossing my fingers for better news.

    •  ADP has been "better" that the official #s... (0+ / 0-)

      ...but it hasn't been unbelievably better.

      I suggest that the official number will be no worse than an "unchanged" U3. Enough to for POTUS and the rest of "our team" to run on and assert that with some actual Public Sector growth, things CAN & WILL be demonstrably and dependably better in the near term.
