We are 1 week from the release of the July 2012 Jobs Report?  What do you think it will show?  Will it underperform like the past several months, or will it be a bright spot?  Will it start changing the shape of the race since it will come 3 months 3 days before Election Day?

My earlier comment notwithstanding, I do think that the site would be better off if Inks left his position. (The fact that the village idiot has dropped in to express his support for him only confirms this.)

+171.000 jobs this time I guess (182.000 private, -11.000 government).

Rate = 8.1% (-0.1)

While U3 might tick downward, U4 would either hold steady or even tick upward with that sort of jobs number.

Which must mean that more people are starting to look for work again...

I did not too badly with my prediction (only the UE rise was disappointing).

Credit is due for the fact that nearly 100,000 new jobs were created, but the unemployment rate is still climbing, so that's not good. Very interesting. The September job numbers will be the most important in terms of the election, as the October numbers will be released too close to the election.
