169,000 > #Syria

Amid the debate over Syria it seems that the new unemployment numbers are getting lost in the shuffle.   To those not paying attention the economy added 169,000 jobs last month and unemployment fell to 7.3%.  This is the lowest unemployment rate since December 2008.

If this continues it is going to have a bigger impact on the 2016 election than Syria.  A slumping economy electorally killed the first President Bush even after triumph in the Middle East and an ok economy saved the second Bush after a mess in the Middle East.  So Carville was right – it’s the economy stupid.
