Those numbers, sorry Joe Scarborough, are not good news for Republicans (they're not awesome for Democrats either, but more good than bad)
But I have a feeling the Party that doesn't believe in the Big Bang, Evolution, Global Warming, Birth Certificates, or scientific polling is going to have a hard time believe the BLS.
Oh and BTW,
The change in total nonfarm payroll employment for July was revised from
+141,000 to +181,000, and the change for August was revised from +96,000 to
I'm not an economist by any means, but isn't the Payroll Survey which continues to usually be higher than the BLS numbers generally on reflection end up being accurate on the revised numbers of late?
Be interesting if in November the number is September ends up being about plus 176k.
And thus ends my economic speculation and regurgitation of the sum total of what I've learned from Atrios, Krugman and DeLong.
