Market recap: Stocks finished flat, erasing an early rally fueled by the U.S. jobs report, as an ECB official said it isn't certain Greece would receive an aid payment next month. The drop in unemployment to 7.8%, lowest of the Obama presidency, could lift some of the clouds over upcoming Q3 earnings reports. Crude oil fell 2% after an early pop; Treasurys erased a two-week rally. NYSE losers led winners six to five.

  • Anyone that believes this job report (7.8%) is nothing but a political hack, in bed with Obama and his Administration. Politics as usual to heck with the truth.

  • You are another reason to keep the right-wing extremest out of government.

  • Terry, what part of the unemployment percent being revised upward every release since Obama took office do you not understand?


    The only difference is that they will wait until after the election to revise it this time. Oh, and the BLS is being run by two big time Obama fund raisers. Oops.

  • Neil,
    Don't waste your time. He/she or whatever "Terry" is-is a one-trick pony. Most have come to ignore he/she or whatever it is. Have a nice weekend.

  • This has to be one of best of times for America. Unemployment rate collapsing, auto sales surging, home prices accelerating. Good times.


    Obama has done great taking in consideration the tea bags who believe Jesus rode dinosaurs.


    A top tax rate of 90% to the 1% would reduce the deficit and enhance the middle class. It is them or us.

  • surfnspy, yes, I've been around enough to know that, but just can't let the stupid or ignorant (can't tell which) comment stand in case someone new visits this thread and reads it.
