Friday's report by the Bureau of Labor Statistics showed 96,000 jobs were added in August, fewer than expected. The unemployment rate fell from 8.3% to 8.1%, but only because more people gave up looking for work.
The jobs situation is not getting any better. This is disgusting. Whoever was elected in 2008 should have made it about jobs, jobs, jobs. Every day until the unemployment rate dipped significantly.
Everything else should have taken second place to jobs.
Instead it was make time for ObamaCare, make time for beer summits make time for going after the 2016 Olympics make time for golfing . . .
There was time for everything but focusing on the economy.
8.1% if the current official unemployment rate.
That is unacceptable.
Someone did not do his job and does not deserve four more years.
In fact, considering all the people who got pink slips in the last four years, it's past time Barack got his.
