people, america has turned the corner. >> kimberly: well, you wouldn't know it based on the job numbers that came out this morning. the unemployment rate dropped to 8.1%. why? 368,000 americans have simply dropped out of the workforce. now as of today, almost 90 million americans aren't working. employers added 96,000 jobs last month. romney reacted to the news and speeches earlier in sioux city, iowa. >> after i said earlier after the party last night, the hangover today, jobs numbers were disappointing for almost every net new job created, approximately four people dropped out of the workforce. nothing that the president has done in three-and-a-half, four years to give the american confidence he knows what he is doing when it comes to jobs and the economy. >> kimberly: all right, so eric, jobs and the economy. strong statement by romney. what do you think? >> eric: the report. every month it comes out
and -- stop it, bob. we didn't hear anything about jobs in president obama's speech last night. here are the real numbers. under obama, 200,000 fewer people working today than when he took office. 368,000 have given up hope in the last month alone. in the last three yeah years under obama, 3.5 million people given up hope. if you add that to those who dropped out of the workforce, the unemployment rate should be 11%. the labor force, lowest in 31 years. look at the chart on the next page. bob, you will moan when you see this. >> bob: is this going snob >> eric: still going on. b.h.o. under president obama the labor force dropped. number one is the lowest minute to the last 38 years. number two among men the lowest in all of history. lowest labor participation rate among men more than ever. obama talk of recovery but i
don't see it. >> kimberly: being that you are an expert in hangovers. what do you think? >> greg: that bothered me. i know hangover, you, sir, do not know hangovers. the people leaving the labor force, where are they going? did planned parenthood create generation after pill? what is happening to the country? they're all home. all the anecdotes that president obama is using are inversely proportionnal to the positive data he has. the legislation good news you have, the more anecdotal report you use. median income is a big deal i think. i has been down 4 grand. that is 20 barbie two-story beach houses. for dana. k.g., four dresses. >> kimberly: dana, what did you make of it? >> dana: well, i thought one thing they should have done differently for the dnc.
it's not a surprise that the numbers come out on friday. they come out every, the first friday of every month. the convention the way it was set that the party in power depose second. that's why the dnc was after the republican committee. i think that president obama, however, should have given his speech monday night, labor day and given distance. i know the number is coming out on friday. i don't know what it will be, but it won't be good enough and let the convention finish itself out and end on the highest note they had, president clinton's speech. one other thing that bothered me in the sound byte that we just played, talk about wanting to go back to the good old days of the 1990s with the clinton administration. two things he mentioned were raising taxes and doing more regulation. two things that clinton did that helped the economy was lower the rate and sign a sweeping deregulation bill. all of this stuff rings
hallow. whatever good will they had coming out with their base is probably fine. but independents, everything was wiped, everything good was wiped out when they saw the number today. it's so deflating. >> kimberly: what could he have said, though? given the fact that the job numbers are a bit low, sustained long-term unemployment -- i'm coming to you, bob. you bat clean-up. the numbers are so bad, what else could he is have done? he gave a good speech with the tone and how he delivered it. >> eric: i didn't think it was that good. same speech we have seen over and over. >> kimberly: content was bad. delivery -- >> eric: delivery, good speech. couple more numbers. unemployment among blacks, 14.1%. hispanics, 10.2%. 2.5 million people still out of work. the only sector that grew jobs was drinking places. >> greg: tell me about it. >> eric: manufacturing was down. >> greg: i am responsible for 35% increase in manhattan.
obama created jobs for people counting the number of jobs that have been lost. >> kimberly: there you go. now bob? bob, here is the deal. a lot of people feel that bill clinton outshined obama. you yourself thought michelle obama was fantastic. and some people are suggesting that biden was even better. >> bob: i thought biden's speech was remarkably good. i think he made one or two mistakes in it. i was wrong. i thought obama would do, what is it again? mea culpa. which he did not do. >> kimberly: you promised us that. >> bob: i was wrong, and i admit it. but the thing about people dropping out of the workforce, remember that we're at the peak years coming up in the baby-boom generation and prim retiring. it has a lot to do with it. >> dana: but they don't want to retire. >> eric: this is the lost participant -- the population is increasing. >> bob: i want to say something. >> kimberly: where are you going? >> bob: that is ridiculous.

day when it comes to firing up the base, that's the draw. >> bob: it may be true. i think it's so low and those people are not voting, half of them. the other half, split evenly. it is about getting the base turned out. >> kimberly: there was a huge expectation going in because he is a great oratro he would deliver something fantastic. you thoht he'd do some kind of mea culpa. he couldn't get it through his lips. he couldn't do it. as a result you saw the reaction, social media, twitter last night. eric, you were getting quite a bit of feedback from people on it. people were expecting something. how does it move the dial or the needle of independents? boston if you are obama and defend the last three-and-a-half years, be honest, it's different than giving a speech he did in 2008. >> dana: to a person, every analyst said it's not good enough. it wasn't specific enough. it wasn't fresh enough. we saw this at the "state of the union."
i was surprised that that reaction was universal, that it was just not that good a speech. >> greg: you know what it reminded me of, did you see the polished film that opened up for obama? i don't know who produced it. >> kimberly: you have been asking all day. >> greg: i assumed it was steven spielberg. who is it? somebody is speaking in my ear. david guggenheim. then you hear clooney talking an you're supposed to feel something. but you just go, oh, not him again. >> kimberly: i did. >> greg: is that the same thing when you hear obama, not like the soaring, you know, oratory rhetoric that you go, it's great. you go i heard this before. like running in to an ex, on street. >> bob: i ran into my ex. >> greg: you ran over your ex. >> bob: scared the hell out of me. >> eric: did you hear in the piece, the movie at the beginning. bill clinton was in there and he said i really respect president obama because he did the same thing i would have done given the chance with bin laden. i heard that, i was like wait
a minute. he had the first kill shot at bin laden and gave it up, right? no? no? >> bob: there was not firm enough intelligence on that. i give bush credit for setting up the intelligence that eventually got him. >> dana: but it brings up the commercial that the obama campaign got in a lot of hot water for. that had him at the time if he was president he wouldn't have taken the shot. so it's the undercurrent of a talking point from a few months ago. they didn't update president clinton. >> bob: what did you think about obama took on romney hard? >> greg: i thought he did and i thought he had to. my question is about the media. will they treat the overt patriotism that you saw last night, the same way they treated it in tampa, the hort answer is no. the -- the short answer is no. the long answer is nooooo. >> kimberly: on that note -- stick around for more weird

numbers were going to be what they were going to be and not done anything to protect the president on that level. >> no, i think from her perspective, she feels that the president has a plan. it asked her the question you know, given the numbers and given the fact that people, conservatives are always saying hey, look at these numbers, are we better off than four years ago? absolutely not. it opened the door. how do you feel? you are so close to the president, do you feel he has improved the economy? she said look, this president is working hard. he is has a plan. she went to the same riff that you heard during the president's speech last night. so she said he wants to build infrastructure. all that stuff you heard. i think a lot of is it a set piece at this point. but, you know, that is what she said. she didn't get off message. >> bob: juan, we have a few seconds here. greg has a serious question. >> greg: i love her when she was in the go-gos. >> bob: that is good. >> juan: wrong woman. boston that great that the gasolineup will poll came out and showed obama with a big
bump and romney lost ground? >> you know, i don't know, this is so amazing to me that the audience, the audience, even for wednesday night when the football game was on was bigger for bill clinton than it was for the same night during the republican convention. the size of the audience and the bump. >> bob: i think it was a great interview. great job. good for obama. okay, one more thing is next. ♪ ♪ we have big dreams.

>> greg: ask for the money back! >> eric: stop it, greg. those kids deserve it. >> kimberly: terrible. >> bob: got to get out of here. my former boss jimmy carter set record for longest post white house 31 years. tough time as president but a wonderful job in a lot of things, eradicating diseases around the world. give him credit and the carter center as well. thank you, boss. >> eric: he didn't get a second term. >> bob: you had to say that. i said he eradzcated diseases, and you sat there and dumped on him. >> kimberly: i want the talk about prince harry. something important. what happens in vegas, gets sent to afghanistan, people. don't think it's going to be a secret. so poor harry with clothes on is going to afghanistan. we're happy he will serve his country and help us out over there. he is going to the -- southern afghanistan. begin a four-month combat tour on a gunner. >> dana: let it not be said that the queen is
