Where are the jobs?

"“Today's jobs report shows our economy continues to move in the right direction," declared US House Rep. Barbara Lee on Friday.

Poor Barbara Lee, you'd think all that spinning would mean she'd actually lose weight, instead the pounds have piled on. Maybe she feels a little shame for her lies since Barack Obama became President of the United States?  Once upon a time, she said the Afghanistan War had to end.  Years and years later, it continues and, since Bully Boy Bush is no longer in office, she's grown okay with it.  Her shame, no doubt, accounts for eating problems which have led her to balloon up.

Samantha Sharf (Forbes) noted the same numbers and that they "brought little joy to job watchers.

But it was left to Senator Bernie Sanders' office to tell the hard truth, "The official unemployment rate for March was 6.7 percent, unchanged from February, but real unemployment ticked up to 12.7 percent, the Bureau of Labor Statistics announced on Friday. That number counts workers forced to settle for part-time jobs and those unemployed for so long that they have given up looking for work."

Barbara Lee can betray the people and surrender her independence to Barack all she wants.

It won't change the fact that he has failed to fix the economy.

It also won't change the fact that, since being sworn in, he's repeatedly promised to address the issues of employment but he's been repeatedly distracted by ObamaCare, beer summits and other nonsense.
