how very convenient that these numbers come out after the election.How come we also didnt hear much about this fiscal cliff during the election.It would have been nice to hear both sides on how to handle this.Ever feel like your being led down the garden path.It seem like all elections are about smoke and mirrors.It was nice to see Obama set a new record on negative adds 85%.

weird; before the election, things were improving and Obama's plan was definitely working! now after the election, we find that really we're still shedding jobs. Who could have forseen such a thing?

Now that Obama won the election, all the suppressed bad news about jobs and the economy will finally come out.

When will America wake up and realize that printing more money, increasing entitlements to extend to every living person (taxpayer or not) then borrowing from China to pay for it, will NEVER stimulate an econcomy to recovery. We are in for four more miserable years of 8+ percent unemployment. On the bright side, now we get "free" healthcare!

The president lacks an economic plan leaving our state and others flapping in the breeze. MN is blessed with a diverse economy, when we start to see job creation or job loss issues, its not a good sign. Seriously, can you point to even 1 single Obama iniative that is going to create jobs in the US? The poor job numbers are not a suprise. The state just shed over 1,000 very well paying medical device jobs due to the upcoming Obamacare taxes that kick in starting in January. If you are concerned about the job numbers, you should contact Amy Klobuchars office as well as Al Frankens office to get an update on what they are doing to remove this unfair, anti-business tax. They voted for the tax - they need to OWN it. This will trickle down in the form of reduced state revenue - not good news for anyone.
