Less bad then previous months so that is good in today's America.
We're going to spend our way to a recovery and the government is going to create jobs.

So why are you worrying..just sit back and wait.

Jan. 8 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. unexpectedly lost 85,000 jobs in December, supporting Federal Reserve forecasts that a labor market recovery will take time and making it more likely interest rates will stay near zero for the next six months.

The so-called underemployment rate -- which includes part- time workers who’d prefer a full-time position and people who want work but have given up looking -- rose to 17.3 percent from 17.2 percent.

The Obama administration is under pressure because about half of the jobs lost during the recession have occurred since the president’s inauguration in January of last year.

“This is a very stubborn recession,” Labor Secretary Hilda Solis said in an interview today on Bloomberg Television. “We’re going to have to work harder to create jobs.”

Conservatives complaints are not about governments inability to create jobs, but rather it's inhibition of job growth through interference.
Can you see the difference now or are you choosing to be contrary?

Miborn, they will never own up to the fact that Obamie is a total failure.

He has an open checkbook, total control of the country and still has lost almost 10 million jobs.

Anyone, and I mean anyone with an open checkbook could have created something that create at least a few jobs.

It just shows he has no clue how to run anything.

Yep the open checkbook is quite an understatement to say the least.

He's given bailouts to corporations who are still closing plants in the USA and opening them in Mexico and China, he's planning an amnesty to bring in millions more ultra cheap labor for his corporations and elites. He's giving $8,000 to home buyers to try to patch up Bush's housing bubble, to create more jobs to the cheap foreign dry wall installers, roofers and of course huge profits for the building companies' CEOs.

And he's spending non-existent money like there's no tomorrow.


And you can say that agian and again.

Interference would come from the GOV against the Small Business Owners ability to continue to grow and create more jobs
