Jobs Report Below 8%! Scarborough In Shock!

"7.8%? I can't believe it!  What's going to happen to the Republican talking point?"

The new jobs report just came out.  It is below 8% for the first time in four years.

I'm watching Joe Scarborough on "Morning Joe" right now putting a negative spin on this GOOD JOBS report.  Of course it is a given that the Joe Scarboroughs of the world will never see any GOOD in a lower jobs report because that would benefit President Obama.  But one thing is for sure, the Republican talking point that Obama promised to get the unemployment figure below 8% is NOW GONE.

At a Romney/Ryan rally they were celebrating with fireworks, perhaps a little too early to claim victory, don't you think?  Maybe no fireworks today for Romney/Ryan.

The most important thing about this GOOD JOBS report, is that this is not only good news for the Obama/Biden campaign but good news for the country.

I'm getting a big kick out of watching Joe Scarborough twist himself into a pretzel trying to figure out why the new jobs figure is below 8%.  He said "these numbers don't add up."

Hang on Joe, maybe next month unemployment will go up next month and you can be happy again.

Too bad, so sad, GOP.

Watch the Republicans scramble now to explain this "bad news." They'll fall back on the standard excuse "it's fixed by those Chicago politicians and the liberal media!"

Anne Marie,

I got a kick out of how Joe Scarborough was struggling with the 7.8% unemployment report. He obviously wasn't expecting a figure below 8%. He kept saying "something has to be wrong!" Deal with it Joe.
