    Employers add no net jobs in Aug.; rate unchanged

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Employers stopped adding jobs in August, an alarming setback for an economy that has struggled to grow and might be at risk of another recession.
    It was the weakest jobs report since September 2010. The unemployment rate remained at 9.1 percent.WASHINGTON (AP) -- Employers stopped adding jobs in August, an alarming setback for an economy that has struggled to grow and might be at risk of another recession.

    Let's hear it libs, how the economy is getting better.....Ha! what a joke....

    Then there is this little ditty.....

    Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 19% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Forty-three percent (43%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -24

    snip

    Overall, 43% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the president's performance. Fifty-six percent (56%) at least somewhat disapprove.
    Just 16% believe the nation is generally heading in the right direction.

    That 16% must largely be in these forums from what I see of the posting from liberals, and liberals that are ashamed to admit they are liberals in here...

    Don't expect much if any response from the Obama supporters who will do whatever they can to divert from the Obama record even to the point of ignoring it. Why such loyalty to the failed ideology of liberalism is beyond me.

    Right, and why was it such a bad month? Could it be in large part because the stock markets took a dive as a result of the Republicans' idiotic debt ceiling stunt? Does it surprise you that companies were more hesitant to hire after seeing $4 trillion erased from their books in a single week? You mean dumbass Republican games DO have real world consequences? Shocked!!

    It's hard to see the future as anything but bleak.....Wall St tumbles after data shows no jobs growth - Yahoo! News

    Wall Street stocks tumbled on Friday, with major indexes falling 2 percent after data showed U.S. jobs growth ground to a halt in August, adding to worries about the health of the economy.
    Nonfarm payrolls generated no new jobs last month as sagging consumer confidence discouraged already skittish U.S. businesses from hiring, keeping pressure on the U.S. Federal Reserve to provide more monetary stimulus to the economy.

    What the hell are you talking about, the stock market ended up about even for the month. Once again you have no clue as to what you are talking about. Try focusing on the Obama results but I notice that you continue to run from those results. Obama is incompetent and shows the same characteristics of other liberals who try to impose liberal social engineering on the center right country.

    BAWAHAAAAA! That dog don't hunt anymore pal, especially when we now know that the stunt pulled was Obama trying to increase the amount of taxation after a tentative deal had already been reached...

    What you are seeing is a country slowly dying from Reagan Supply Side economics. In order for capitalism to run well you need demand and since people are up to their ears in debt and the fact that most of the middle class have been shipped far and wide. We have corporate executives who make millions by importing goods and services from abroad.

    No, what we are seeing is the failed ideology trying to blame supply side for their own failures which is what liberals always do. It is pure liberal arrogance to claim that the previous group of liberals didn't spend enough. This country wasn't built on the liberal ideology and liberals thus have no one to blame but themselves and we know that will never happen.

    I guess retired Republican Senator Chuck Hagel would disagree with you:

    "In an interview with the Financial Times, Hagel blasted GOP leadership for their “irresponsible actions” during the debt ceiling debacle, noting that “I think about some of the presidents we’ve had on my side of the aisle — Ronald Reagan, George Bush Sr., go right through them, Eisenhower — they would be stunned.”

    “Disgusted” with the debt ceiling negotiations, Hagel called it “an astounding lack of responsible leadership by many in the Republican party, and I say that as a Republican.” “Does anyone not believe what’s happened here the last couple weeks in the market was not a complete, direct result of the lack of confidence that came out of that folly, that embarrassment?”

    Could it be that Obama now wants to keep his job more than support his own ideology?

    News Alert: Obama tells EPA to withdraw proposed smog standards
    September 2, 2011 10:54:32 AM
    ----------------------------------------

    President Obama pulled back proposed new national smog standards on Friday, overruling the Environmental Protection Agency in its efforts to compel states and communities to reduce air pollution.

    The move represents a win for the business community, which had lobbied to postpone the new restrictions until 2013 in light of the current economic downturn.
