October Unemployment Jumps to 7.9% – Making Obama Worst Jobs President Since Great Depression

It’s official, Obama is the worst jobs president since the Great Depression.

The October unemployment rate jumped to 7.9%.
The AP reported:

U.S. employers added 171,000 jobs in October and hiring was stronger over the previous two months than first thought. The unemployment rate inched up to 7.9 percent from 7.8 percent in September because the work force grew.

The Labor Department’s last look at hiring before Tuesday’s election sketched a picture of a job market that is gradually gaining momentum after nearly stalling in the spring.

Since July, the economy has created an average of 173,000 jobs a month, up from 67,000 a month from April through June.

Still, President Barack Obama will face voters with the highest unemployment rate of any incumbent since Franklin Roosevelt.

It looks like Obama’s “spend your way to wealth” Keynesian plan didn’t work out so well, huh?

    Well one more bad report for Obama . I am shocked he didn’t cook these numbers. Even as it is these don’t tell the story of the far too many percentage of these being part time jobs. Lets add Obama to the list of unemployed in 4 days

  • The “real numbers” must have been real bad for them to move it up even .1%.

  • Robodog7

    Did they count California this time?

    The U-6 rate is 14.6% this month.

    Lies.

    Next month it will jump to 8.5% as large employers will be free to let people go and make accurate reports without fearing their children will be bludgeoned to death.

  • Bigkahuna

    Defense contractors with massive layoffs will make it 9% when they send out their notices this week.

    Judging by the lay offs slated, I expect perhaps more than that. And yesterday ADP revised the figure used in the September numbers down to less than half of the number used.

    The 4 year experiment of being a 3rd world country didn’t work.

    I mean it worked, but thankfully a majority of Americans don’t want to be a 3rd world country.

    America is the best country that has ever existed and we want to keep it that way.

    First comment out of the gate—liberal anger. Their messiah is going down, and they don’t like it. Do we get to take twinkish pictures holding up the percentage asking for a truce. Bet me that there will be one disgusting remark after another. C’mon proggies, live up to the civility that you claim to want.

    Count on CNBC to have their cavalcade of liars, and they have… It is so amazing to see how CEOs are really not capitalists,thru and thru. They are capitalists if tha tis where their pay come from. if not, then not…

  • Carbon Pootprint

    171K New Jobs, 170K New Jobless.
    Using Obama math he created 341k jobs tada, math is hard.

    But on Jan. 1 the Bush tax cuts expire. What will the number be after that?

    Keynesian, otherwise known as “roads first economics.”

  • The only thing that will increase confidence of job-creators is when Obama leaves office. I pray that happens in January 2013.

  • squeaky

    just a kid. i wonder [not] where he found that idea. Romney and it’s back to the crop fields. obama on the other hand will be santa comin’ to town taking credit for raiding other peoples wallet and passing out other peoples goodies. somehow i doubt he’ll have his hand in jay z’s wallet.

    “But on Jan. 1 the Bush tax cuts expire. What will the number be after that?” along with all those time limited exemptions. the fools will be pointing to the promise and obama will be pointing to the small print.

    Actually, I like to refer it as “Crack whore on a binge” economics.

    You know, when I don’t have to see this idiot’s face after Nov. 6, IT’S THE START OF THE BEST DAYS OF MY LIFE.

  • Greg

    Why did the bother to put the word “JOBS” in the title?

  • Bob

    However today at 2 Ohio Obama rallies, he cited job creation by him at record positive levels. The clueless Obamabots on the stage with him looked like bobbleheads with every lie Obama was making.
    I cannot believe America does not fact checking on the continued litany of lies this man makes. Can you say the main stream media is in his back pocket…

  • Miss Peach

    The libs are trying desperately to spin this around….but, but, but 170,000 new jobs were created ! Sorry libs, it’s not gonna work this time. People are realizing that Obama is poison to job creation. They are ready for a President who will fix this economy and create jobs and put people back to work.

  • John Herald

    Headline doesn’t match the lead – someone on the staff has a bias. “Jumps” and “inched” are clearly two different things.

  • SassyLassy53

    George Bush’s unemployment was 4.8%-5% during the years 2006/2007, and that is WITH underemployed, which Obama’s 7.9% is without, with the underemployed, stopped looking, it is more like in the teens! Gas was 2 dollars cheaper, groceries were cheaper, more people HAD jobs, the taxes were lower, you name it. I cannot understand for the life of me why this election is not a no brainer, unless people are brainless. As Joe Biden said today, during the four years he’s never been proud of being his VP, google it. I suppose he will claim he misspoke, he’s doing a lot of that lately. Hey, when you are worried about Dan Quayle being a heart beat away from the Presidency and he misspells potato, how come you aren’t worried that the president VP doesn’t even know what state he’s in half the time and he is a heart beat away. Bad judgment, bad policy, and cover ups, welcome to Obama’s world! 4 more? I sure hope NOT. Wake up guys! And on the end note, he tells Russia’s Medvedev on a hot mic “tell Vlad I will talk with him AFTER my election” What else does he have in mind for the US after his election, when he didn’t protect the navy seals and Ambassador in Bengazi????? Kinda frightening I’d say. Better think a little when you are alone in that voting booth Tuesday!!!

  • according to CNN unemployment is just up slightly. after the numbers are given their monthly adjustment later this month CNN will conveniently forget to report the increase. that is if romney doesn’t get elected, if romney wins then the story will be given wall to wall coverage under the headline “romney election causes spike in unemployment.”
