    .......Its unfortunate this rising tide lifts all boats doesn't report to some degree, the percentage of blacks that are now employed. Leaving us to only speculate the actual count; nevertheless, there must be at least one(1) benefiting from the surge in job growth:

    December Jobs Report: Good Economic News, Better Political News

    Payroll Gains. The headline number, a gain in 200,000 payroll jobs, is the kind of figure common in robust recoveries but that has been quite rare in the past few years. December represented the 15thstraight month of job gains. While the U.S. has a long way to claw back all the jobs that were lost in the recession that began in 2008, jobs are coming back. Since February 2010, the economy has added 2.654 million jobs, and it has added 1.64 million jobs since December 2010. December's figure represents the highest number of payroll jobs in the U.S. since March 2009.

    The gains were spread through a variety of sectors. Transportation and warehousing industries saw gains of 50,000, driven in part by seasonal hiring—a line that should likely be taken with a few grains of salt. Retail added 28,000 positions — solid, but not spectacular. More significant were the additions in manufacturing (23,000), after a few months of relative idling, mining (7,000 jobs), health care (23,000). A few words of caution: employment in the large professional and business services sector barely budged in December. The average work week, and average hourly earnings both rose marginally. Taken together, the payroll reports shows an economy in which more people were working, for more hours, and at slightly higher wages in December 2011 than they were in November, and in December 2010. This dynamic helps support the creation of a virtuous circle: more workers earning more wages spend more money and do a better job keeping up with debts, which leads to more demand and more production, which in turn leads to more production.

    How can there be a jobs bill, only to benefit outsourcers, to Korea, the Phillipines and Colombia

    and then make sure not only the American public but the world understand what it really is about by placing a major jobs outsourcer, big time outsourcer, like Jeffrey Immelt as tie Czar for the Bill?

    In good faith and political science, the presidents speech was to get the COC on board fro the Bill, and the Bill is posted on this thread, in fact there have been demonstrations in South Korea, the Phillipines, and Colombia against what they see will destroy unions there and degrade their living wage

    ......Here's what's posted in the thread and not necessarily a total reflection of the President's Jobs Bill:

    I'm not following your trend of thought concerning outsources.

    what was that from and did you hear the presidents first speech on the jobs bill itself? Before he went to the Black caucus or read the bill? No trend of thought, facts, he went to the Black caucus to get them on board about the Bill!

    After calling for the passage of his American Jobs Act, and criticizing Republican opponents who are determined to block him every step of the way, a worked-up Obama concluded his speech: "I expect all of you to march with me and press on. Take off your bedroom slippers, put on your marching shoes. Shake it off. Stop complaining, stop grumbling, stop crying. We are going to press on. We've got work to do, CBC."
    With a tap of the podium, Obama exited stage right. Bolting to their feet at his parting words, the crowd in the Washington Convention Center ballroom erupted into thunderous applause.
    Well, most of the audience, anyway.
    The Backlash Builds
    On Monday, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) expressed concern about the president's tone. "I don't know who he was talking to, because we're certainly not complaining," she said on CBS' The Early Show. In fact, she noted, the CBC had long been pursuing a robust jobs initiative. Waters further pointed out that the president doesn't address other key voter blocs, such as Hispanic and gay and lesbian groups, quite the same way.
    An irritated Courtland Milloy at the Washington Post wrote: "Funny, isn't it, how Obama always gets the nerve to say shut up when he's addressing a friendly audience?"
    With the president's speech repeatedly summarized as "a fiery summons" that "told blacks ... to quit crying and complaining," as an Associated Press article put it, the enthusiastic in-person response quickly gave way to displeased takes on Obama's condescending attitude toward African Americans. From the extra bass and preacher-like inflection in his voice to those provocative closing sentences, observers demanded to know: What did he mean?
