Worst. Jobs. President since the Great Depression.
Unemployment rose to 7.8% last month.

The AP tries its best to put a positive spin on the news.

U.S. employers added 155,000 jobs in December, a steady gain that shows hiring held up during tense fiscal cliff negotiations in Washington.

The solid job growth wasn’t enough to push down the unemployment rate, which stayed 7.8 percent last month, according to the Labor Department’s report Friday. November’s rate was revised higher from an initially reported 7.7 percent.

Stock futures rose modestly after the report was released.

Robust hiring in manufacturing and construction fueled the December gains. Construction firms added 30,000 jobs, the most in 15 months. That likely reflects additional hiring needed to rebuild after Superstorm Sandy and also solid gains in home building that have contributed to a housing recovery.

Manufacturers gained 25,000, the most in nine months.

Even with the gains, hiring is far from accelerating. Employers added an average of 153,000 jobs a month last year, matching the monthly average in 2011. Employers added 1.84 million jobs in 2012, the same as the previous year.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Obama has the worst record of any President in the last 60 years. From 1948 until January 2009 when Obama took office, there has been a combined 39 months of unemployment above 8 percent. Since Obama took office we’ve had to endure 43 consecutive months of unemployment above 8 percent and no end in sight!

  1. Where’s the “lower than expected” chyron?

    Obama needed 10 million jobs just to keep pace. He’s six million behind. And in China they need 25 MILLION per MONTH. Obama can’t muster 200,000 in any month.

    Focused like a laser on golf, basketball, campaigning, and ignoring his family.

    Worst. pResident. Ever.

  2. That’s why Barack’s #1 priority now is… banning guns. Besides the fact it won’t reduce violent crime (it’ll increase it as the data consistently shows), it helps dump more people into complete dependence on the Fatherland.

  3. We had our chance in November to send The Chosen One packing back to Hawaii permanently but we –

    – were outvoted by the moochers and looters, and
    – too many of us sat on our hands and didn’t vote (I voted, what’s your damned excuse?)

    Thus we got the government we so richly deserve as a nation.

  4. Thanks for confirming what I already thought.

  5. Democrats don’t care of unemployment and self-reliance. What they care is how much they can buy votes through unemployment?

  6. Jim,

    your headline is incorrect, the overall rate stayed the same at 7.8% (it says so in the story you posted). It did jump for blacks and women.

  7. o could care less about jobs or the economy or the fiscal disaster he has created.
    he was relected and that’s all that matters
    watch carefully how he will continue to abuse the powers of the office

  8. Nothing changes–nor will it–

  9. For 8 years they claimed we were in a 4% unemployment recession under Bush.

    Somehow, the media never mentions the astoundingly terrible economy that Obama and the democrats ushered in with their big government social justice foolishness.

    Seems to me that the ONLY thing that the msm will be forced to report is the end of the US Dollar as the worlds reserve currency. On the day that happens, this entire fiasco can no longer be hidden.

  10. “November’s rate was revised higher from an initially reported 7.7 percent.”

    Mission accomplished.

  11. Obama says he’s adding jobs – while the unemployment rate is stuck on almost 8%. Make sense to you? Not to me.

    Maybe Obama needs to stop pretending to add “jobs” and start pretending to get the economy working.

    If that happened, I might even start pretending to support him.

    I’m not holding my breath.

  12. Gosh, makes the statement of the ‘world being under a curse’ more tangible.
    Trojan Virus obama -ALERT- … plus “should be gone Boehner” still there – another ‘no vote’ gone wrong.

  13. unemployment stimulates the economy, joe biden said so.

    unemployment payments stimulates the democratic party.

  14. The AP tries its best to put a positive spin on the news
    ———————————————————————-

    AP = Alinsky Propaganda.

  15. ”WHAT ARE THEY DOING TO OUR COUNTRY? THEY THINK SENDING A CHECK THEY ARE DOING THEIR JOB…..THAT’S THE OBAMA WAY…….

  16. They were partially correct about the robust hiring. They could have left out the R and the O, and they would have nailed it.
