    No way the numbers are that bad. Hussein has said time and time again that jobs are his number 1 focus. Laser like attention.

    For 5 years now.:laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh:

    So claims made in this post:

    1. 160,000 "restaurant" jobs

    Reality: 100,000 of the jobs were in construction, manufacturing, trade/transportation/utilities, financial activities, and professional/business services. Considering that 175,000 were created, if you assumed every other job added occurred at a restaurant (a completely ridiculous assumption), that would still be 75,000 in that industry.

    2. 8-10K new "full time" positions created.

    Reality: ADP doesn't divide by full or part time, but it is highly unlikely given the 90K new jobs in trade/transportation/utilities and professional/business services.

    So two claims made, and both claims are completely false. Seems about right.

    The highlighted part makes the OP's point about part-time jobs. Who cares where those said jobs are.

    The highlighted part (#2) is not true. It is not in the report. They don't divide part-time and full-time in the ADP report. He made it up.

    It clearly states that 4,000 of the jobs were in construction. And further states 160,000 were service industry jobs. Now I was saying "tongue and cheek" that the 160 K were restaurant jobs. In your haste to put on your Obama knee pads to defend his sorry ass, you did not read the article. I did and deal with these statistics daily. Do you also realize that YTD, 78% of the "net new jobs" created have been part time. I'm sure after Syria, things will pick up.

    Who said liberals don't have a sense of humor?

    Oh, my bad, I did.

    Yes it does state that 4K are in construction. It also states that 40K were in Trade/Transportation/Utilities and 50K were in business services. It would be pretty easy for you to read and do the math, as I did, if you wanted to actually learn something or communicate on the actual numbers.

    Yes the number of new jobs is heavily slanted towards part-time jobs. Been that way for a long-time.

    They have a sense of humor, alright. The problem is, they must first consult Google to determine if something is funny or not.

    Yes that is why most famous comedians and all those Hollywood comedy actors are so Conservative.

    Oh, my bad, they aren't.

    Michele is on a healthy food kick and all her husband can do is add part time fast food employees to the job market.
    When comedians were funny they were conservative.

    I'll bet it's closer to 50/50 than 20/80. Unless you talking about demographics.

    Is that before or after some of them must confirm via factcheck.org?

    So free markets don't reward the best people in their fields? Interesting position for a libertarian.

    What?

    Even for you this is beyond a stretch. Keep up the desperation...it's quite enjoyable.

    Basic econ would dictate that a very highly paid profession would attract top level talent. So if all of those people aren't funny, how do they get paid so much by for-profit corporations just to be funny?

    I think you need to clue yourself in on the world all your loving liberal comics live in...as in the life 99% of them live in.

    Completely and utterly clueless.
