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.

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.

Far better to write-in Ron Paul or Tyler Durden on your ballot than not vote.

The whole "Obama/Bush" blame assignment game is so trite at this point.

This began in the 70s with Nixon.  Continues with both parties to this day.  Reagan (balnacing budget) and Carter (the consumption of oil adress to the nation) had their moments of showing SOME signs of being their own man (and they paid for it, mostly by their own parties)......while being complicit in tearing the country down (although not as much as Bush/Clinton/Obama).

When Obama leaves office in 2016, he'll be known as "President Stagnant".  Such a shame that a guy who meant so much, historically and figuratively, to people of color across this nation, and to democracy in general, progressing to a more better place in time......just ends up being a corporate schill like the rest of 'em.

This is the country the zombies voted for.

Obama’s Record on the Economy and Housing: Are We Better Off Than 4 Years Ago? | Confounded Interest | Antony B. Sanders, September 3, 2012 (edited)

All in all, the United States is worse off since January 2009 since we have expanded Federal government debt by 50.47%, saw a decline in household income of -4.75% and still have almost 13 millions unemployed. In fact, the economy and housing market seem stuck in the recession that NBER dated from December 2007 to June 2009…

Here is a snapshot of the economy between January 2009 and today. Clearly, we are worse off as nation…

House Prices : Using the Case-Shiller 20 city house price index, house prices have fallen 4.17% since January 2009. House prices rallied at the end of the recession (gray bar), but started declining again until the beginning of 2012.

Civilian Unemployment Rate : Civilian unemployment has actually risen since January 2009 by 6.41%. It is difficult to have a vibrant recovery with rising unemployment. Unemployment rose to 10.0% in 2009 and has gradually declined to 8.30%... A more inclusive unemployment rate that includes marginally attached workers is the U6 unemployment rate. That has risen 5.63% since January 2009 and has a similar shape to the civilian unemployment rate. Once again, 15% U6 unemployment is too high

The civilian employment to population ratio has worsened since January 2009. It was 60.6 in January 2009 and is now 58.4.

Average Weeks Unemployed : Another measure of economic health is the Average Weeks Unemployed. It has risen 106.38% since January 2009… and has settled in at around 40 weeks.

Number of Unemployed : The number of unemployed rose 6.18% from January 2009, but has improved since reaching its peak in 2009… but almost 13 millions unemployed is a national tragedy...

Household Income : The real killer for a recovery is the 4.75% decline in household income since January 2009.

Gas Prices : It doesn’t help the economy when gasoline prices (regular) rise 122.61% since January 2.

SNAP (Food Stamps) : The number of households on food stamps, a negative economic indicator, has risen 45.38% since January 2009.

Federal Debt : The Federal government debt has grown by 50.47% since 2009… a reflection of how Federal government deficits and debts have not stimulated the economy. Given that we and our children will have to pay for this debt, we are clearly worse off on this metric.

Stop using facts on people. All that does is make them put their hands over their ears and scream "I can't hear you!!! I can't hear you!!!"

You got that right -  and it ain't over.

 

Do you think our Fed or any of these Central Banks will be able to roll all this liquidity back in?

 

Not a chance!

I think Ron Paul even thought the dam might burst this summer and in an act of desperation he'd be ushered in.

The monetary collapse will come, right when you're being lulled to sleep by stealing as usual.  The capacity to absorb our monetary pollution seems boundless, even Mars is in on the act.

Reagan ... Tax Cutter and Debt Expander

Bush II ... War, War, and Big Debt

Obama ... Borrow our way out of Debt

Obama can't take your gun away, but I guess if you need to worry about something, that'll do as well as anything else.

Right...just like Obama can't murder American citizens without charging them with anything, and just like he can't indefinitely detain American citizens without charge or trial, either. Obama can't listen in on your phone conversation without a warrant, or do anything unconstitutional like that. :eyeroll:

As promised, we will now need drinking keywords for BO's speech tonight.(as if you aren't shitfaced already)  We need three keywords, one for just taking a drink, one for slamming a whole beer and one for downing a whole bottle of booze.  Last weeks Romney results were as follows:

 

The "We Believe in America" Romney speech catchwords used during speech plus or minus:

Debt-2 (one usage out of context to actual financial debt: i.e a debt of gratitude)

Built that-0

Economy/jobs- 31 (no reference to middle class)

Mormon-1

Other keywords of note that were overused:

American(s)-infinity

Deserve-8

Future-5

Souls-2

Church/family/women- too many to list

The point of this exercise is to identify similar or the same keywords used by both RNC and DNC.  And to drink.

Thanks Dexter.  No problem.

So here are the results plus or minus.

Jobs- 15

Future- 14

Tax(es)- 11

Hope- 10

Health or related care- 7

Middle class-4

Other words/phrased that I noticed that were overused.

-Challenges

-"You did that"(x3)

-Americans.  ad nauseum. But never "American people" save for one instance.

Compare and contrast.

Disclaimer:  There were multiple uses of other words in excess but it is hard to keep track of more than 20 words at a time.  At least I am getting good at knowing some of those keywords and can put my marking pen next the word before the candidate says the word.  It get's a little harder when they lump three keywords all into one sentence though.

Cheers everyone.:-)

seems a bit crazed to me to fire upon prez0's re-election campaign-launch with the #NFP

but yeah, if he wants to know it, he probably does...

slewie said last when the dollar index came offa the lower 70's after all the doomers were predicting "crashola" and theEnd of the US monetary unit

that prezo would run on

  • a strong dollar
  • that the "economy" could be worse, much worse
  • and the markets were no longer "in failure" but functional and liquid whether you want to splash around in them or not

if prezMcCain and vice-prezPalin were speaking tonight i doubt if tyler would be raising this issue #NFP   L0L!!!

i don't know what he'll say about jobs and employment :>  "ain't it awful" probably won't be it, tho

What is this bullshit. Where's ZH's live feed of the speech.

The wife won't let me watch it in the living room after all of the projectile vomiting during Myth's speech.

Why does she think it will be worse for 'Bama's speech. Four years ago, it went perfect. It took a month or so before the reality set in.  And that was just bleeding from the ass for the first 6-7 months until I got used to it.

I've got him on a feed, and I think he just said...

"We're not about what your Government can do FOR you"

"We're about what your Government can do TO you."

Somebody check that second sentence. It may not be what he said, but I know it's what I heard.

When do the Primaries start for the Uber-President... of the Fed?

Fuck this political shit. I want a vote on what really counts.

BTW, do I have to be an "Accredited Investor" to get in on the Italy/Spain bonds. If iPhone5 doesn't go well, the Central Bank of Israel and I are going to have to swap out of AAPL to something good, like those bonds or NFLX. Or maybe there's a reverse-merger in China to get in on. I think China and the Asian Markets are about to comeback majorly big.

It's getting tough to be a MainStreeter investing. Maybe that's why there are only 206 of us left in the US.

Everything is going automated, thus ADP gets a larger portion of payrolls than not. ADP numbers, when jobs are added at all, will always grow.
