"You forgot the Clinton numbers " Con Modhas been playing BS with them all morning. He's been telling half-truths with them. He probably feels (he doesn't think) that doing so will fool smart people just like it fools liberals. To be smart and liberal? Has anyone ever witnessed this at TH?

I've seen lots of liberals with intelligence. Wisdom, however, is another matter.

New numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics show the unemployment rate has dropped from 7.9 percent to 7.7 percent.

Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 146,000 in November, and the unemployment rate edged down to 7.7 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Employment increased in retail trade, professional and business services, and healthcare.

Economists had predicted the unemployment rate would go up as a result of Hurricane Sandy. BLS said the storm didn't have a large impact on the new statistics.

Hurricane Sandy made landfall on the Northeast coast...
