If not falling off a cliff, today’s national jobs report is a clear indication all is far from well as American continues to struggle under the yoke of Barack Obama’s War on the Economy.
The end of April jobs number came in at nearly 60.000 fewer jobs than was estimated – just 115,000 jobs created. This number represents the lowest amount in six months and could be signaling the increasing possibility of unemployment going back UP by summer. Perhaps even more troubling was the nearly 350,000 Americans who left the work force altogether this past month. It has been the decline in workforce population that has accounted for most of the decline in the unemployment figures – less people being counted means a reduced unemployment rate. The Obama administration has known of this scenario, but has all but ignored it in favor of continued spin that the economy continues on a path to full recovery.
In addition to the tepid jobs growth, the Obama economy has also led to the United States decline in overall competitiveness with other nations, a dramatic rise in food stamp use, equally shocking rises in college tuition, health care, gas prices, and both national and individual debt.
It should be noted that no modern era economic recovery following a recession has been as slow and faltering as has this almost absent recovery under President Barack Obama. He has become, in essence, the single worst performing economic president in generations.
America’s opportunity to make Barack Obama a one-term president is now just six months away.
