Obama is No GWB … 88,000 Jobs Created in March, Labor Force Participation Rate Falls to 34 Year Low, Americans Dying in Afghanistan & North Korea Threatening Nuclear War as Barack Obama Plays Golf for Second Weekend in a Row
Barack Obama is the worst United States President ever, surpassing even Jimmy Carter … Obama just does not even pretend to care about Americans.
President Barack “Nero” Obama might as well be playing a fiddle as opposed to golfing as the United States collapses and the world burns. On Friday, we learned that the US created a pathetic 88,000 jobs as the unemployment rate fell to 7.6% thanks to the Labor participation rate falling to 34-Year Low of 63.3%, the lowest since May 1979. We all know who was president then, don’t we? More Americans were killed in Afghanistan, the despot dictator of North Korea Kim Jong-un has been threatening nuclear war, the Middle East continues to be a tinderbox, not to mention the record level number of Americans on food stamps and escalated gas and health care prices. All this going on and this clown we call a president goes golfing yet again, for the second weekend in a row.
Shh, don’t let anyone know I could care less about ‘We the People,” it’s all about what perks I can get out of this job
President Obama went out for a round of golf Saturday afternoon, his second weekend in a row to hit the links at a course at Joint Base Andrews. The president golfed with White House aides Marvin Nicholson, Joe Paulsen, and Michael Brush.
When will this president ever take his job seriously and actually show one ounce of empathy with the struggling American people? The answer is never, because that is what this 1% president is all about. Sacrifice is your you, not him. It is “We the People” who are supposed to struggle and make it possible for Obama and his family and the Biden’s to take multiple vacations, while American families stay home. It is obvious Obama could care less about the American people, and a note to black folks, that means you too. Obama acts like nothing is going wrong, yet everything a catastrophe, down to his all important NCAA basketball brackets.
EXIT QUESTION: Would the MSM let a Republican president get away with the perception that a president could care less and go on as business as usual as they demand Americans sacrifice and in the middle of sequestration where others are having their life styles cut? Back in 2012, Obama had played four times more golf than George W. Bush did in eight years. Ironically, it sounds all too familiar to Obama’s budget spending as well. Remember when President GWB gave up golf because in his words, he did not think it was right as Commander in Chief and it sent the wrong message. It is very unfortunate we have a current president in Obama who does not feel the same as Americans continue to die and millions struggle out of work.
“I don’t want some mom whose son may have recently died to see the commander-in-chief playing golf,” Bush said. “I feel I owe it to the families to be in solidarity as best as I can with them.”
“And I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong message,” Bush said.
US Unempoyment Rate Drops to 7.6% in March 2013 with a Pathetic 88,0000 Jobs Created … Labor Force Participation to 63.3%, a New 34 Year Low
BARACK OBAMA, EPIC FAILURE … PATHETIC, JUST PATHETIC … Obama’s abysmal Job growth failure.
The US Unemployment rate for March 2013 fell to 7.6%; however, this was done with an anemic 88,000 jobs created. The jobs report fell far short, not a little or just missed as economist expectations of 200,000 new jobs. As reported at Zero Hedge, the unemployment rate declined to 7.6%, but this was due entirely to the collapse in the labor force participation rate, which declined by 20 bps to 63.3%, a new 30 year low. In March labor force de-participation soared by a massive 663,000 to a record 90 million Americans who are no longer even looking for work. At this rate Obama will have the unemployment rate down to 2% as everyone will have left the workforce and because of the BS fuzzy math they use to calculate the numbers.
Even Obama is going to have a tough time spinning these numbers, but with no GWB to blame, he will find someone
Job creation slowed to a crawl during March, with the U.S. economy creating just 88,0000 positions though the unemployment rate fell to 7.6 percent.
The number was a sharp slide from February’s upwardly revised 268,000.
The Labor Department reported Friday that nonfarm payroll growth eased amid hopes that the economy had begun to achieve the escape velocity needed for sustained growth.
Friday’s report fell short of economist expectations of 200,000 new jobs, though it did confirm some of the weakness in recent reports.
Nonfarm payroll employment edged up in March (+88,000), and the unemployment rate was little changed at 7.6 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Employment grew in professional and business services and in health care but declined in retail trade.
Household Survey Data
Both the number of unemployed persons, at 11.7 million, and the unemployment rate, at 7.6 percent, were little changed in March. (See table A-1.)
Among the major worker groups, the unemployment rates for adult men (6.9 percent), adult women (7.0 percent), teenagers (24.2 percent), whites (6.7 percent), blacks (13.3 percent), and Hispanics (9.2 percent) showed little or no change in March. The jobless rate for Asians was 5.0 percent (not seasonally adjusted), little changed from a year earlier. (See tables A-1, A-2, and A-3.)
In March, the number of long-term unemployed (those jobless for 27 weeks or more) was little changed at 4.6 million. These individuals accounted for 39.6 percent of the unemployed. (See table A-12.)
The civilian labor force declined by 496,000 over the month, and the labor force participation rate decreased by 0.2 percentage point to 63.3 percent. The employment- population ratio, at 58.5 percent, changed little. (See table A-1.)
The number of persons employed part time for economic reasons (sometimes referred to as involuntary part-time workers) fell by 350,000 over the month to 7.6 million. These individuals were working part time because their hours had been cut back or because they were unable to find a full-time job. (See table A-8.)
From USA Today, Dow set to open 150 points lower on weak jobs report.
Futures for the Dow Jones industrial average were down 1% while futures for the Standard & Poor’s 500 index and the Nasdaq 100 composite index were about 0.8% lower after the Labor Department’s monthly employment report was released at 8:30 a.m. ET. The number of jobs created in March was less than half the consensus estimate on Wall Street.
UNBELIEVABLE, GET READY FOR 4 MORE YEARS OF ECONOMIC PAIN AMERICA AND YOU VOTED FOR IT …
Don’t worry Obamanomics has saved the US economy, NOT!!! America, the following is not a Joe Biden gaffe. It is what the Obama administration and Democrats actually believe. They think that you are no longer worried about the economy and this way it will enable Obama to move on to guns and immigration as Americans continue to be unemployed. Yesterday at the White House, the economist Joe Biden told reporters, Americans no longer worried about the economy.
“They are no longer worried, I think, about our economy being overwhelmed either by Europe writ large, the EU, or China somehow swallowing up every bit of innovation that exists in the world. They are no longer, I think, worried about our economy being overwhelmed beyond our shores.”
What say you America, are you concerned about the economy, lack of job growth, record number of Americans on food stamps and a standard of living that continues to go down? Just curious, what has changed? It certainly cannot be President Barack Obama’s economic record of job growth as Obama wins the “Gold For Worst Economic Recovery Ever”.
YOU ASKED FOR IT AMERICA, YOU GOT IT … MORE POOR JOBS NUMBERS FOR BARACK OBAMA …
2013 starts off with the same pathetic, ho-hum economic jobs data as 2012 ended. The economy adds another yawn 157,000 jobs in January as the unemployment rate ticks up to 7.9%. Get used to it America, you are the ones who reelected Barack Obama and his failed economic policies. Did you expect things to change with regards to jobs when you reelected that same failed policies and agenda? Welcome to the jobless Obama recovery. How can anyone expect job growth to change when we have a president who believes in increasing taxes and over-regulating business? So is Obama and his minions going to still blame George W. Bush? No, they will blame House Republicans for the next four years. They will find blame with anyone, except Barack Obama.
Obama is laughing at you America for reelecting him
The new year started off with an old story: Employment grew again in January but not at a pace able to lower the jobless rate.
Nonfarm payrolls rose 157,000 for the first month of 2013 while the unemployment rate edged higher to 7.9 percent, news unlikely to alter the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy or instill confidence that the recovery is gaining steam.
Economists were looking for 160,000 net new jobs created with the unemployment rate holding steady at 7.8 percent.
The ho-hum jobs numbers for January were accompanied by substantial revisions higher for previous months, according to the report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
From the Department of Labor:
The number of unemployed persons, at 12.3 million, was little changed in January. The
unemployment rate was 7.9 percent and has been at or near that level since September 2012.
(See table A-1.) (See the note and tables B and C for information about annual population
adjustments to the household survey estimates.)
Among the major worker groups, the unemployment rates for adult men (7.3 percent), adult
women (7.3 percent), teenagers (23.4 percent), whites (7.0 percent), blacks (13.8 percent),
and Hispanics (9.7 percent) showed little or no change in January. The jobless rate for
Asians was 6.5 percent (not seasonally adjusted), little changed from a year earlier.
(See tables A-1, A-2, and A-3.)
Just yesterday the Labor Department stated that the weekly initial claims for state unemployment benefits increased 38,000 to 368,000. Of course this was coupled with Obama ending his failed Jobs Council that met four times in two years. Just curious, do the members of this joke of a Council considered lost jobs? Obama’s minions actually have the nerve to tout this group as a success because the unemployment rate has come down in the past two years. Of course this fails to address the issue that millions of Americans have simply left the work force.
Welcome to the Obama Non-Job Recovery … Long Term Unemployment at Highest Level Since WWII at Nearly 40 Weeks
WHY DID AMERICA REELECT SUCH AN EPIC JOBS FAILURE?
During the Obama administration … unemployment is considered a long term employment. The fact that Barack Obama has promised jobs and claims he has created them has to be one of the biggest farces and disappointments of the America people in 2012. The Obama job recovery has been a joke and sadly the American people reelected this president and did so voting for higher unemployment, lower incomes, record government spending, and a stagnant under-performing economy. The failures of the Obama administration are beyond comprehension when it comes to jobs and employment, yet Americans either are uniformed or they like being on unemployment benefits.
In an Obama world 12 million Americans remain unemployed, 22.6 million Americans were unemployed or underemployed in December and the average unemployed American is out of work for nearly 40 weeks. We are not even going into the record number of Americans on food stamps and disability. Think about that America, your average American is on unemployment for nearly a year, this is the highest level since WWII. The levels are emphasized by the visual of the below chart. How can anyone think that Obama is serious or cares about people getting back to work?
More from FOX News America’s News HQ discussing the dismal Obama jobs record during his first term. It is truly incomprehensible how Americans reelected this failure of a president. Has America gotten that lazy that they like collecting unemployment and sitting on the coach for 40 weeks? Sorry, but one really has to question a country that would reelect such a jobs failure when that was supposedly the number one issue during the election. Guess what you can expect America in a second Obama term … more of the disastrous same. Now Obama is on to bigger and more disastrous things to destroy America like weakening the 2nd Amendment, amnesty for illegal immigrants and of course, increasing the US debt to unsustainable levels. And you voted for this.
How’s that Hopey-Changey Stuff Working … Obama Supporters Hardest Hit in Latest December Jobs Report – Blacks, Hispanics Woman & Young Adults Continue to Suffer with Unemployment
Hey Obama supporters, Blacks, Hispanics, Woman and Youth … How’s that Obama “Hopey-Changey” stuff working out for you?
The December Jobs report came out yesterday showed that the unemployment rate ticked up to 7.8%. Of course that does not even count the millions of individuals who have given up completely and stopped looking for work. What is most amazing that the very people who have supported Obama the most are the ones who have been adversely affected by the failed Obama jobs recovery. December’s Millennial jobs report for “Youth Unemployment” was miserable at 11.5%.
OBAMA THANKS YOU FOR HIS REELECTION, SUCKERS
- The overall unemployment rate for 18-29 year olds for December 2012 is 11.5 percent (NSA).
- The unemployment rate for 18-29 year old African-Americans for December 2012 is 22.1 percent (NSA)
- The unemployment rate for 18-29 year old Hispanics for December 2012 is 12.2 percent (NSA)
- The unemployment rate for 18–29 year old women for December 2012 is 10.4 percent (NSA).
The declining labor force participation rate has created an additional 1.7 million young adults that are not counted as “unemployed” by the U.S. Department of Labor because they are not in the labor force, meaning that those young people have given up looking for work due to the lack of jobs.
If the labor force participation rate were factored into the 18-29 unemployment calculations, the actual Millennial unemployment rate would rise to 16.3 percent (NSA).
Overall, blacks, Hispanics, Woman all increased in the December Jobs report from the November one:
Among the major worker groups, the unemployment rates for adult women
(7.3 percent) and blacks (14.0 percent) edged up in December, while
the rates for adult men (7.2 percent), teenagers (23.5 percent),
whites (6.9 percent), and Hispanics (9.6 percent) showed little or no
change. The jobless rate for Asians was 6.6 percent (not seasonally
adjusted), little changed from a year earlier.
Unemployment Ticks up to 7.8%, a Meager 155K Jobs Created, Debt at $16.4 Trillion and Obama is on Vacation
WELCOME TO THE NEW OBAMA JOBS NORMAL …
The Obama jobs recovery still pathetic … only 155,000 jobs created in December 2012 and the unemployment rate ticked up to 7.8%. Get used to it America, this is what you wanted and this is what you are going to get. The reelection of Barack Obama will mean more of the same, a lackluster economy and a $16.4 trillion debt and getting higher every second. We have more people on unemployment longer than ever before. Its almost like being on unemployment is an Obama job. We have more people on food stamps and disabilities than ever before. Jobs be damned. This is what you voted for, more of the same. Don’t worry America, your president is hard at work fixing the problem. NOT! Actually he flew off to Hawaii again for yet another vacation but not after raising taxes.
U.S. employers added 155,000 jobs in December, a steady gain that shows hiring held up during tense fiscal cliff negotiations in Washington.
The solid job growth wasn’t enough to push down the unemployment rate, which stayed 7.8 percent last month, according to the Labor Department’s report Friday. November’s rate was revised higher from an initially reported 7.7 percent.
Stock futures rose modestly after the report was released.
Robust hiring in manufacturing and construction fueled the December gains. Construction firms added 30,000 jobs, the most in 15 months. That likely reflects additional hiring needed to rebuild after Superstorm Sandy and also solid gains in home building that have contributed to a housing recovery.
Manufacturers gained 25,000, the most in nine months.
Even with the gains, hiring is far from accelerating. Employers added an average of 153,000 jobs a month last year, matching the monthly average in 2011. Employers added 1.84 million jobs in 2012, the same as the previous year.
Late to the Game Barack Obama Rips Right-to-Work Legislation in Michigan at Fiscal Cliff Campaign Stop Daimler Detroit Diesel Plant
Barack Obama just cannot stop campaigning. Leadership be damned, it’s all about politics, division and lies.
Yesterday, during a post-election, fiscal cliff campaign stop at a Daimler Detroit Diesel Plant in Michigan, President Barack Obama railed against the Right-to-Work legislation that was passed by both legislative houses. Why so serious, Barack? You appear to be a little late to the game and attempting to pretend like you care about this issue after the fact. Both legislative houses in Michigan passed right to work bills last week. It would seem that if this was such an important issue to Obama that he would have been slamming it last week, not now. You are a little too late Barack as Michigan is about to become the 24th right-to-work state in the US.
Obama stated, “These so called right-to-work laws, they don’t have to do with economics, they have to do with politics.” Which can explain why he interjected himself in the state issue. If its about politics, Obama cannot be far behind. Hmm, and I thought liberal and democrats were about choice?
In his speech on Monday, Obama described the proposed changes in Michigan as being part of a “race to the bottom” that won’t help the economy.
“What we shouldn’t be doing is trying to take away your rights to bargain for better wages,” Obama told a small crowd at the plant. “We don’t want a race to the bottom. We want a race to the top.”
Obama’s reelection likely affords him the ability to work harder for labor on some issues.
At the same time, the upheaval in Michigan allows Obama to earn good will with labor, which might help if unions feel
As we are reminded by the Gateway Pundit, New Fact Sheet Confirms: Right to Work States Benefit from Faster Growth, Better Pay.
One would think that Obama had more important things on his plate like the Middle East on fire, the US economy in shambles and millions upon million of Americans out of work.
Another Obama Record for the Food Stamp President … Food Stamps Usage Rises to 47.7 Million Participants & 22,973,698 Households in September 2012
They don’t call Barack Obama the Food Stamp President for nothing …
Welcome to the new normal under President Barack Obama. Newly released data show that participation in Food Stamps, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, has reached yet another all time high in September 2012. Thanks Barack Obama. Food Stamp participation increased in September alone by 607,559. The number of households enrolled in the program also increased in September by 289,235. You reelected him America, expect more of the same for the next four years.
Participation in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or food stamps, reached another high in September, according to new data released by the United Stated Department of Agriculture.
The most recent data on SNAP participation were released Friday, and showed that 47,710,324 people were enrolled in the program in September, an increase of 607,559 from the 47,102,765 enrolled in August.
The number of households enrolled in the program also increased from 22,684,463 in August to 22,973,698 in September, an increase of 289,235. The average benefit, according to the new data, was $134.29 per person and $278.89 per household.
Oh yea, the economy is getting much better now isn’t it?
President Barack Obama … The Grinch Who Stole More than Christmas.
The Salvation Army are seeing record number of families asking for help this Christmas season. But what else would one expect when a record number of Americans are on food stamps and an employment participation rate at a dismal 63.6%. Obama and Democrats continue to tour the faux-unemployment rate of 7.7%. More and more Americans are dropping out of the work force, including 350,000 in November alone. All this while Obama claims there is a job recovery without any recovery. Obama and Democrats can spin the economic numbers and situation all they want, Americans know the truth and their circumstances are bleak. At some point Americans will wake up and realize that GWB is not to blame and Obama is. When that occurs there will be hell to pay by Democrats.
Officials with the Salvation Army say they’re seeing a record number of families asking for help this holiday season.
Nearly 18,000 families have registered for Christmas assistance in the last month. That number has grown by 2,500 since last year, breaking the 2009 record.
The Salvation Army official web site.
With all this suffering going on in the US and we have liberals that are more concerned with their liberal ideology than helping those who are in need. This clearly is a mental defect of liberals and shows just how little they care about those who are in desperate need. Their hate so consumes them that they would rather harm the people who are aided by The Salvation Army because of their liberal political ideology. This was never more evident than the screwballs at UC Berkeley who are calling for students on campus to ban the Salvation Army citing their alleged homophobic practices. But these liberal college kids would be the first to be looking for a government hand out at tax payers expense.
Barack Obama has not just stole Christmas, he has stole our children and grand children’s future with the unsustainable debt.
