Response to Surya Gayatri (Original post)

73. Only 96K jobs added in August... Labor force participation rated lowest in decades...

This is not good news. I understand that the OP is trying to spin it as good news in an effort to help President Obama's reelection. But it is terrible news. The numbers are weaker than most economists expected. The unemployment rate went down slightly due mostly to people giving up and leaving the work force.

I support President Obama. But I also support telling it like it is.
