    U.S. Employers Add 169k jobs

    US employers add 169K jobs, rate falls to 7.3 percent | Fox News

    Congratulations Barack Obama and liberals on the 7.3% unemployment rate where over 300k dropped out of the labor force, 866,000 people became discouraged, the labor participation rate dropped to a 35 year low at 63.2%, and zero construction jobs were created. This booming Obama economy is staggering. Revisions to previous months jobs creation also occurred as 74k jobs were adjusted downward. Wonder when Obamabots are ever going to admit that Obamanomics is a disaster.

    The new liberal normal, higher part time employment, lower labor participation rate, high discouraged workers, stagnant economic growth, and high debt. Welcome to that European economic model.

    Nothing to fear about that - simply vote for liberals and then the vast array of gov't social "safety net" programs will make it all better by using other people's money (income redistribution).

    I hear if you start the old war machine up, you can spike the economy up. We got that to look forward too.

    To be fair, its Bushs fault. Or obstructionist republicans, or climate change, or some guy who made a youtube. Anything but a policy of massive deficit spending and wealth redistribution combined with a do nothing govt.

    That only works when you have liquid cash to spend on big industrial projects. 1 billion dollars mostly spent on expending ammunition wouldnt make a dent in the economy. Compare that to WW2 where govt was spending 50% of GDP, the equivelant of 8 trillion today.

    You're nothing if not consistent. Boring, but consistent.

    I wonder who was blamed for all the troubles in America and the world before GW was born.

    Like I said yesterday, Obama may be "educated" but he is definitely NOT smart!

    Actually, the problem predates Obama's administration and dates back to Greenspan/Clinton. Those two set the trajectory we are on. We are now still living in the aftermath of their bubble.

    Of course Bush and Obama should have taken the hit and cut the budget. They didn't and so we are still stumbling along.
