He's gonna get some little bounce out of the phony job statistics but it won't last. Reality is reality.
How in HELL does a puny 114,000 jobs added, which wouldn't even push the meter by 1/10 of a point translate to 3/10's?
That would mean that over 800,000 people just got up off the couch and went back to work. And no one else even noticed, not Challenger Gray and Christmas, not the ADP payroll survey or any of the other private sector metrics that usually track these things and aren't that far off.
Weekly continuing claims are still around 375,000, neighborhood thereof.
EVEN IF…. it were even remotely true, this late in the game says the clown just isn't getting it done. Too damn long to produce results. Too long.
