  •  Just awesome. Yet another piece of evidence (4+ / 0-)

    that Obama is indeed the luckiest politician ever.  Alan Keyes, McCain/Palin, and Romney/Ryan as competition.  And a semi-fantastic jobs report 36 hours after the low point of his re-election campaign.

    He just has that magic touch.  

    •  Not lucky. Just hard work. (7+ / 0-)

      He worked his ass off to save the economy and put it on a path to growth.  This report doesn't include the 300k jobs that were found by the BLS dating back to 2011.  So the number of jobs being reported right now actually understate the true number of jobs created under Obama.

        come on, he has definitely been a lucky politician.  I believe his policies are helping the economy, but it has been a slow recovery largely due to Republican obstructionism.  Yet on the biggest jobs report of the campaign - BAM!  7.8%.  Erases Romney's momentum from the first debate.  

        And again - he's had the most pathetic opponents in every one of his general election campaigns.

        Now that's not a slight on Obama at all.  He is an amazing person, an amazing campaigner, and an amazing president - that's what it has taken for America to vote for a black President.

          the jobs crisis to get him out of office and used 8% as their stick in the ground to define success v. failure.  That the US economy has come back to bite them in the ass is poetic justice.  Fuck those debt defaulting unpatriotic clowns.
