Watch The President Discuss Today's Abysmal Job Numbers Live

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Update: the president is now 30 minutes late. Either the guy on the 18th is taking his sweet time or the teleprompter has been hacked.

The much expected TV appearance, which made waves earlier today with everyone expecting Obama to proudly announce a +200K NFP number is about to start. Watch it live here as the scapegoating begins in 5...4...3...

Dismal jobs report? Bullish everything. You want dollars, you want metals, you want equity: In other words, the report is insignificant.

Since when did the economy move on fundamentals? >?

This means more stimulus, and an assured debt ceiling raise. A big, surprising number. Debt ceiling raise could be the new QE.

Overall bullish for the corporate dictatorship. It means higher efficiency, lower costs. Humans and their payroll taxes, benefits, retirements.. pure liability. Think about that next time you use the automated checkout lines at the supermarket, or buy crap on the web.

All hail the Corporate Dictatorship. We the People will be left with socialist programs and subsidies to make ends meet.

EDIT: Obama: Debt Limit raise is the answer.

BUY everything.

I'm presuming you are being sarcastic. The dangerous thing about this NFP report (dangerous for TPTB) is that it seems to be pointing out that running 12% deficits and massive stimulus is no longer producing even a short-term pop in employment, i.e. that Keynesism solutions are failing. Sure, there will be calls to increase stimulus from here, but people aren't stupid and Obama=Fail is on their minds.

Is someone with such a questionable birth certificate qualified to offer opinion on such important matters?

Maybe someone made the wrong layer visible on the NFP document? Should have shown layer with good figure on and hid layer with bad figure, tut.

The question of a birth certificate is moot.

Anyone who wants the job of POTUS shouldn't be allowed to have it, because regardless of who it is or what party he belongs to or from under which rock he crawled, he (soon to be 'or she') is an empty suit, full of hot air, owned by TPTB.

Now wait...now listen...now listen to me. I beg of you not to do this thing. If Bernanke gets hold of this Building and Loan, there'll never be another decent house built in this town. He's already got charge of the bank. He's got the bus line. He got the department stores. And now he's after us. Why? Well, it's very simple. Because we're cutting in on his business, that's why. And because he wants to keep you living in his slums and paying the kind of rent he decides. Joe, you had one of those Bernanke houses, didn't you? Well, have you forgotten? Have you forgotten what he charged you for that broken-down shack? Here, Ed. You know, you remember last year when things weren't going so well, and you couldn't make your payments? You didn't lose your house, did you? Do you think Bernanke would have let you keep it? Can't you understand what's happening here? Don't you see what's happening? Bernanke isn't selling. Bernanke's buying! And why? Because we're panicking and he's not. That's why. He's picking up some bargains. Now, we can get through this thing all right. We've got to stick together, though. We've got to have faith in each other.

You are being disingenious (sp?) whether intentionally or not. A positive number is not enough. The net gain in jobs (new jobs - new entrants into the work force) has to be positive. Working age population grew by 176,000 last month, which means there are 160,000 new people who don't have a job.

Well, this morning's price action in gold should (but won't) silence the deflation critics who say gold is going to deflate with everything else.  Bad jobs numbers print, and everyone poured into gold.

Gold, the only insurance against risk.  The perfect trade.  The lifeboat against what is coming.  Get ahead of the stampede or get trampled.

How much daily, "All's well Mr. President" could you handle from Timmy and Co.? I don't blame him, he shoulda just fired some fuckers, to get some real info from real economists, IMO, alas, the "esteemed" ones all have to repeat the same bullshit happy mantra to stay employed, thus truth in economics equals higher unemployment :)

The low NFP numbers mean everyone's already employed that needs a job.  It's all good news folks

These guy's just don't know how to play the game. What they need is the tickers on the screen beside the tele-prompter's head. As he reads, the algos are flipped on and the magic of the orator is experienced "real time". It would be like the Bush II, reversed. They may even push the limits and put Biden on. Nah!

Hes already 1/2 hour late. Thinking theyre delaying until when the final Space Shuttle launch at 10:35 so the networks wont have to cover his speech. Afterall, what the hell can he possibly say in this situation.

Obama has been late to just about every speech or press conference. To me, it is the ultimate sign of his arrogance.

He's on CPT and for you to expect him to abide by your rayciss standards of behavior is oppressive and - did I say - RAYCISS.  He is diversity and DIVERSITY IS STRENGTH.  Diversity macht frei, got it?

Obama is late because they are still trying to figure out how to say, "I'm raising the debt ceiling with or without Congress because we really need to give the banks just a little more money because they are threatening to blow this whole thing up if we don't," without making it sound quite that bad.
