    Perhaps the money going to mid-east countries could be funneled back to the United States of America.

    Hurricane Issac is not the cause of this number. Here we go again, the AP trying to prop up their guy! Hurricane Isaac may have slowed a minuite bit of hiring, but with so many unemployment offices closed down by the weather that could have dampened how many people actually filed for benefits lowering this number. Probably a wash.

    The real concern is that Federal Reserve Chief Ben Bernanke initiated QE-3 today which is another vote against President Obama's economy! A Failed President has more effect on the lack of job growth when he attacks the job creators, large corporations(except the ones Obama supports), small businesses, banks, investment firms, and others who invest in our economy!

    Can you say DECLINING DOLLAR VALUE and increased costs for every family in America!
