Today's jobs report was a good one, but a bit of perspective shows both the devastating number of job losses during the recession as well as the minimal bounce off of the bottom. A disturbing feature of the modern recession is its lack of a "V' move in employment.

    Jobs has never been a priority of Obama and WDC in general so hence the results we see.

    Job growth has been a top priority for President Obama, check his record over 3 years. Yes, we can-President Obama. January 2012 with 240,000 new jobs.

    Obama only gave lip services to job growth and couched it in "green job" language which really meant nothing.

     

    He doesn't know anything about job growth or the economy and the lack of programs and ideas reflects that fact. In fact he has retarded growth with all his business bashing. Really brilliant.

    Or it could have been a better than expected report just because of the lack of a Winter in most of the country.

    The only priority Kenyan Black has had is his own demented self. Never before have we suffered such a self absorbed, narcissistic ego maniac as president.
