Once again, the monthly economic numbers represent a disappointment. The Blaze has more…
U.S. employers created only 69,000 jobs in May, the fewest in a year, and the unemployment rate ticked up.
The dismal jobs data will fan fears that the economy is sputtering. It could also damage President Barack Obama’s re-election prospects. And it could lead the Federal Reserve to take further steps to help the economy.
The Labor Department also said Friday that the economy created far fewer jobs in the previous two months than first thought. It revised those figures down to show 49,000 fewer jobs created. The unemployment rate rose to 8.2 percent from 8.1 percent in April, the first increase in 11 months.
Now, excuse my sarcasm, but the Obama administration has two options…
1. Blame the Republicans, the Tea Parties, some natural disaster-ANYTHING. Because, we know that in every leftist regime or organization, when there is a failure, it’s ALWAYS someone else’s fault.
2. Numbers? What numbers? Did you know that the Republicans want to freeze/starve/kill all the poor children/elderly/women?
Of course, the MSM will tow the line, but we all know that this will fail.
