Oh yes they do... Otherwise how will 2014 go? He's got to get the House back so he can ram down more socialism. He can only do that if Repbulicans can be turned upon eachother and that only happens if the "mood" of the country is manipulated.

With a Speaker like Boehner, he really shouldn't have any problem with that anyway.

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...
