I agree with you Poolman. The real answer is so much worse. You'll hear a lot of tooting about the fact that 204,000 jobs were created in spite of the shutdown. But dig deeper and you'll find many more who lost their jobs during that same period.

Better yet, Obama is going to play the same old tired game of using the displacement mechanism. The answer Obama is going to give is that Bush caused this fiasco with his greed, cronyism, and other excuses. He will NEVER admit HIS INEPTITUDE!
I just don't think the reported unemployment numbers have ever been all that accurate. There are far better ways of checking the pulse of the economy. What good are a bunch of part-time minimum wage jobs?
I don't disagree. I was merely making the point that I find this incredibly easy to spin (whether it is entirely right or not). Secret numbers being hidden by the Democrats is far less tangible than the very visible government shutdown.
Makes sense. When a hurricane is headed toward your house, that bathroom faucet that is dripping is the least of your worries. Perhaps if they worked on some of the big problems, the small one's would just go away?
