  •  attrition (0+ / 0-)

    People who gave up--especially teens and the elderly--have left the traditional labor market--and are often working "off the books" someplace--or are now reporting their part time work because their UE benefits are exhausted.  I'm just saying that this volatile number isn't necessarily something to hang your hat on-- it could just be weekly noise--or it could mean some people's pain isn't being attended to.  It's not always about politics.

    Obama wins by showing how the Dow/Jones has recouped its Bush demise--not on stats that change week to week.  Show how we are domestically producing significant more oil/gas.  Those are not numbers alone--those are results--money in the bank--and less money spent overseas.

    Apres Bush, le deluge.
