The national unemployment rate has fallen from 9% to 8.6%, its lowest point since March 2009.
But no one, least of all the Obama Administration, should be jumping for joy. While 120,000 jobs were created, 315,000 gave up looking for work and are thus no longer deemed unemployed. I suspect a good chunk of those people might start looking for work in the new year and I would expect the unemployment rate to go back over 9% by January or February.
Here is what I wrote back in July concerning the unemployment rate and how President Obama could join the ranks of the unemployed because of it.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
