Unemployment Remains at 8.3%; 227K Jobs Added

The American people received some decent economic news this morning.
As with any employment numbers, there is spin for days around the news. Democrats and President Obama will point to the figures as a sign that the economy is strengthening. Republicans and the GOP presidential candidates will say that unemployment is still higher than when President Bush was in office. They will also argue that the president’s stimulus policies haven’t really worked.
Something (and someone) is working around here again. Employment figures still need a major boost, though.
