Exactly! Every year a whole mess of people get job that last only through the Christmas season. Most of these jobs are low-paying with no benefits and only last a couple months. Yet, the Pres and company try to make us believe things they're actually fixing something.

I find it comical that they are even touting about 7.7% unemployment rate as if it is some great accomplishment!

I saw on tv and also read online where they had to roll back the #s from September and October by 49,000; and, with this latest 146,000 jobs number, 350,000 people have permanently dropped out of the workforce. Like Mike says, most of these are probably part-time and/or temporary seasonal jobs.

Yesterday instead of the President working on our debt crisis, he inserts himself into Michigan's "right-to-work" issue/vote stirring up the union crowds the day before the vote; yet, when Wisconsin was going thru this, he didn't want to get involved saying, "It's a state issue."

He's still out there campaigning.

I thought Obama was the national debt.
