Last Jobs Report Before the Election

Measured by President Obama’s own criteria, his economic initiatives failed.  The November jobs report was released Friday.  The unemployment rate ticked up slightly to 7.9%.  Compared with the President’s predictions and promises this number represents massive failure.

Obama’s Only Jobs Boast Is a Jobs Failure

If you’ve heard a campaign speech by President Obama or Vice President Biden or you’ve heard their cheer leaders in the media, you’re familiar with the one employment statistic they bellow at every opportunity: Over the last thirty months we’ve created 4.6 million private sector jobs!

Unemployment Rate Is Much Worse Than It Looks

The September Jobs report published Friday by the labor Department was a deep disappointment.

Obama’s Press Conference: Subdued But Defiant

Remember The Hype & Promises on Election Day

A Final, Pre-Election Review of ObamaNomics In February, 2009 President Obama sought to portray himself and Congress as heroic first responders, rescuing America from a soaring unemployment crisis.  In an editorial in the Washington Post he said in part: I feel such a sense of urgency about the recovery plan before Congress.
