But as is typical of liberal-speak, it's what they DON'T say that makes all the difference.
While 84,000 jobs were created, 85,000 people jumped on the disability rolls. And that does not even consider that we need at least 120,000 new jobs each month just to keep up with the growing population. And it takes 270,000 new jobs a month to show positive growth.
Since Obama took office, 2.6 million jobs have been created. And 3.1 million people got on disability - a net loss of a half million jobs.
And the population growth during Obamas term required over 5 million NEW, ADDITIONAL jobs. But Only 2.6 million were created.
The net result - a net loss of 2.9 million jobs just to keep pace with the population, and not allowing for any actual growth.
Mr. Obama may claim that is a "step in the right direction" because his policies seem to be intent on destroying capitalism so socialism can take hold in America. For him, losing jobs IS a step in the right direction. No president has ever done more to destroy the American way of life.
Mr. Obama has broken every promise he made but one. The one promise he has kept is to "fundamentally change America."
A strange thing - unemployment among blacks is now higher than at any time since slavery. Yet, they still want to vote for Obama. And that shows ignorance - to vote against your own best interests in order to vote for color. If people - regardless of color - were to vote on POLICIES rather than color or ideology, Mr. Obama would lose in a landslide.
