Obama can't be happy about the stagnant economy
The Kansas City Star
President Barack Obama has to be examining other campaign options now that the jobs picture looks less than hopeful.
The economy in June added only 80,000 jobs, leaving the unemployment numbers unchanged at 8.2 percent, the Labor Department reported today. That is not good news for the Obama campaign.
Presumptive Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney will use Obama’s less than stellar record on the economy to boost his chances of winning the White House. No incumbent president has ever won re-election when unemployment was above 7.2 percent.
