They are all at McDonalds though, so you can't count them.

That is a typical fallacy over half of them are higher paying positions 15 an hour plus.

I'm guessing but I think he posted that tongue in cheek.

Link? You know you can't prove that statement. There is no way you can prove to anyone that 1.3 million jobs were added at over $15/hr. I call bullshit.

You could prove him wrong by posting your own link stating otherwise.

That's not the way it works. He made the statement, he's got to back it up.

Its too bad Kerry didn't win, because his plan would have been the cause of this growth.

What do you mean "the way it works"? I just said you could easily refute his statement if you had a link of your own.

Seems to me it is one person's opinion vs other right now.

Actually, this was the first time it rose in several months. Besides, a couple weeks ago several of the libs on this board were telling everyone not to pay attention to the unemployment rate because it is just being manipulated to make Bush look good...

without stats on what type of jobs were created .
It's all speculation. Any way new jobs are being created and thats a good sign for growth in economy.
Business is positive on growth and willing to expand.

Not sure that would be the case if sKerry was elected.

But I'll bet you can prove they were all McDonalds jobs, right?

If you want to know just go over to the BLS.gov site. They have all the facts and figures you could want. I do know that the job growth was fairly broad-based this last month across all sectors. The bottom-line is that just like Nancy Soderberg or whatever her name is said on the Daily Show about freedom in the Middle East, whether it is the spread of of democracy, the expansion of our economy, growth in jobs or fixing big problems like the social security system...it is bad for Dems when Bush is proven right.
