the monthly jobs report changed the picture of the U.S. economy in more ways than one, showing the unemployment rate fell to the lowest level in more than three years and hiring was stronger than originally reported throughout the summer.
Unemployment unexpectedly fell to 7.8% in September, down from 8.1%, as a survey of U.S. households showed 873,000 more Americans had jobs compared to a month earlier.
The last time the unemployment rate was that low was in January 2009, the month President Obama was inaugurated.
All valid points, but I side with Jack Welch on this one. What about labor force participation rate? Why should low wage, low skilled, seasonal jobs be worth anything anyways? Unemployment rate is a bit deceptive. That said the stock market has improved quite a bit so there is a glimmer of hope.

1. Popular vote does not determine who will be the president. The Electoral College officially elects the president and vice president. The president and vice president can be elected without the plurality of the national vote. The most recent case was the Bush/Cheney candidacy in 2000. Thus, this makes the popular vote seemingly irrelevant and pointless.
2. No progress will be made so long as partisanship reigns supreme in politics. That's the main reason why I won't vote.
Get off your high horse. You aren't taking part in the process, therefore you have no right to bitch and moan. It's extremely rare when the popular vote doesn't reflect the electoral vote.
