    Yes, if he'd only wave his magic wand, all would be well. Clearly it's ALL his fault. And yet (today's NYT):

    Job Growth Eases Fears About Effect of Closing
    By NELSON D. SCHWARTZ

    Despite dysfunction in Washington and a 16-day government shutdown, the economy chugged along in October, surprising many analysts as private sector hiring bounced back after a spring slowdown.

    The latest figures, along with upward revisions for job creation in August and September released by the Labor Department on Friday, lifted the estimated monthly pace of hiring to 202,000 over the last three months. If that strength persists, the Federal Reserve will probably feel comfortable enough to begin easing back on its stimulus efforts, economists said, though probably not as early as its next meeting in December.

    Over all, experts said the new data showed an economy with more underlying strength than first thought, but not necessarily growing as fast as many policy makers would like.


    Just thin how much further along we'd be if the GOP hadn't tried to drive us off the cliff with the shutdown.

    Aristoshark saidOh tazzari, you just confuse and anger the rightists with facts. And they don't pay attention to them anyway.


    I guess the government shutdown forced many government workers to go out and find part-time jobs. We should shutdown the government more often!

    The shutdown helped Ted Cruz fundraise. It had no other purpose and no other positive outcome.

    My approval rating for all politicians is much lower than 31%.

    Your approval rating among humans is in the negative numbers.
