4. It Is All About GOP Sabotage

I am sure that numbers will not look good. The GOP has done a good job at sabotaging the recovery. It was going to be difficult to turn things around. One thing will be sure with the GOP in power. It is they will make the economy even worse and suppress wages even further.

5. 100-150k and unemployment rate unchanged

treading water. Revisions are also important... it would be nice to see an upward revision to last month's terrible number.

6. +80,000 is not a "terrible" number

For the first 7 years of Bush's term, before the financial crisis, the average was +65,000.

If you include his last year, Bush's average was +20,000.

Obama's June number of +80,000 would be in the top 25 months of Bush's 84 months in office.


Don't let the media spin you.
