    May’s Jobs Report Disappoints Across the Board

    More bad news for Hussein Obama.



    May

    1 June 2012

    Well, this is a bad employment report — across the board. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the economy created just 69,000 jobs in May -- the fewest in a year -- and the unemployment rate crept up to 8.2 percent

    The inverse will also be true. Some will read this and try to figure out how to polish this turd then blame it on Bush.

    Perfect example of why I hate politics, it makes people see bad news as good news because it damages a political opponent, the suffering of those affect be damned.

    Well, I'd still certainly take slow, steady, job growth over the rapid job loss we saw last time we tried out the Republican plan for the economy.
    Total tax rates- People living in poverty: 16.2%. The median American: 27%. Working people who make over $140k/year: 31%. The top 1%: 30%. Super rich investors: around 15%. Help the democrats retake the house.

    It's also an attempt to educate the public to vote for someone of character and experience rather than fashion or ideology, and what happens when you ignore these factors.

    If you're referring to the collapse of the housing market, that was hardly a planned occurrence, nor was it soley republican policies that led to the crash itself. If you're referring to the pre-2007-8 economic climate, taking your claims of "rapid job losses" seriously would be a task that requires quite a bit of mental gymnastics.

    The housing market was, at most, a minor contributing cause, and really it's probably more accurate to describe it as one of many economic vulnerabilities that made the collapse more severe than a cause at all. Not sure what you mean about mental gymnastics. We lost tons of jobs very fast obviously. Terrifyingly fast.

    And I'm sure you caught this from the report too:

    The change in total nonfarm payroll employment for March was revised from +154,000 to
    +143,000, and the change for April was revised from +115,000 to +77,000.


    So with 69k for May less 11k for March adjustment and 38k for April adjustment leaves an adjusted net of 20k May jobs created. That's right...20k
