As Of This Moment, Obama, Who Is About To Speak At The DNC, Knows Tomorrow's NFP Number

Tyler Durden's picture


While the fact that the stock market soared to new highs hours ahead of Obama's DNC speech may be a pure coincidence, we eagerly await to find out if while it is Bush's fault the economy is in the dumps 4 years after Obama took control, it will also be Bush's fault that the S&P just printed at 4 years highs. Something tells us that the answer is a resounding no. One thing we know for certain is that as of this moment the incumbent candidate knows precisely what seasonally adjusted nonfarm payroll number will be when it is announced tomorrow at 8:30 am. And since the TOTUS is very good at highlighting marginal moves in the economy, expect a leak or two during today's DNC speech. Then again, since the August number will not have to be discussed at the DNC, which ends this evening, there is a chance that the number of part-time workers added will be substantially below the 150,000 latest whisper number. Naturally, if whatever is reported tomorrow had any bearing in reality, the actual number would be negative. But there is an election to be won in two months, and naturally there are NFP reports after the election which can catch up with that trendline. In the meantime, here is why Obama knows precisely what only those select few other funds that are very, very close with the BLS, know.

You have to have SOME basis for pushing for another $1BB stimulus program.  After all, a crony HAS to pay back all those that helped him get re-elected to maintain the quid pro quo.

No need. Didn't that tank at the box office with the critics saying it was very poorly made, and even the director apologizing for it being a piece of shit?

What's funny about a fucking racist douchebag like you is that Michelle Obama could likely beat you to death if you ever had the courage to come out from behind your keyboard to spout your bullshit.  You are a little cunt.

One of the things that lead me to support Mitt Romney in the upcoming Presidential election is his firm commitment to energy independence. America has been striving for energy independence for decades, and I think we now have a candidate who can finally do it, once and for all. If Mitt Romney becomes president of the United States of America, the days of oil dependence are over, and a new sustainable green economy will emerge. Mitt Romney has the strength to stand up to Saudi Arabia and stand by his commitment to developing green technologies. I truly believe that Mitt Romney has the strength and toughness to finally reduce America's dependence on foreign oil.

Ah crap. If MDB is voting for Romney then that has to be the wrong choice.

Or maybe that's what he wants us to think...

If MDB is supporting Romney you know the Washington $126,000 a year bureaucrats are scared the fiat will die soon with Cloward and Piven running the freak show.

Why bother with elections? Why not keep her there forever as a hectorer-in-chief, nagging everyone constantly? That and her vacations should add at least 1% to GDP.

I don't think it really matters, not to us anyway.  Both are totally owned by basically the same people.  The more I learn, and more history I read, the more pessimistic I get.  Things are so much more unbelievably fucked up than even cynics like us on ZH even realize.  If you thought it was bad, well it's a lot, lot worse...

Don't vote period. It won't matter. Any candidates that could right things for America are "killed" by msm. The sheeple know this intuitively. That's why voter turnout has diminished through the years.
OT.. Wall Street has "killed" the markets with these evil predator algos. That's why traders have given up as well.
No one gives a crap about appearances anymore.

Not voting does say you agree on everything or you're simply not interested.

You need to vote different.
