    The jobs number is somewhere around 2.1 Million for 2017 almost exactly what it was in 2016 under Obama. Obama's number was about 2.2 million. That's what was discussed on CNN.
    Thanks from labrea and Libertine

    I'm just happy the country is doing great.

    Maybe, but Barack Obama was certainly the exception. He ruined the numbers for Dems.

    That's the headline and it's by Philip Bump of the Washington Post.

    Don't know what the story says, because the link will not open.

    I guess the headline tells the story.

    Must be really good job numbers if the Washington Post writes a story with a pro Trump headline like that.

    Maybe someone can get the link to work...
    He's been a very successful President thus far at conventional politics. There is no honestly denying that. The economic numbers look good and he has successfully executed conservative polices that ought to make him satisfactory to the conservative base. So he has done his peremptory service to the Republican party.

    Now he needs to follow through on his more populist aims - such as building the border wall and repealing or reforming NAFTA and the rest of our trade policies. Because winning over conservatives (which he ought to have done by now) is not going to be enough to push him over the finish line in the next Presidential Election. He needs those independent working class Americans - and a soaring stock market isn't going to attract him those voters.

    So he's had a good first year. But he's still vulnerable as I see it.

    Yeah, he's been vulnerable since day one.

    But if the Dems run another nominee as horrible as Hillary, he could actually win another term.

    Oh definitely. If they run another Hillary Clinton they will be a disadvantage. Nothing will save them from an awful candidate.

    Just to be clear - when I say vulnerable I mean among his base. In other words - unless he accomplishes (or at least begins) some of his more populist oriented goals - the coalition of voters that made his election possible is fragile and could be undone if the democrats put forth an effective candidate.

    My hope is for TWO decent nominees next time.

    I don't know what our chances are, though...

    The worst growth rate in modern history, yes it destroyed all those factoids Dems liked to throw out.
