You would think that in the age of Obama, bad jobs reports and slow economic growth should be considered the “new normal.” But, no, every time the U.S. government reports on these things we are told the results are an “unexpected” slow down. That’s what we just got again with the newest jobs data and people are about fed up with it.
Fox News related the government’s September jobs report noting that the growth of jobs in the country had “unexpectedly slowed.” But then noted it has slowed “for the third straight month.” How we can have dismal growth for three months in a row and yet it is still “unexpected” is any one’s guess.

But the “unexpected” claim was not lost on Fox News commentator Monica Crowley. She jumped to her Twitter account to deliver a one-word take down of Obama’s dismal economy that hits it just right.

And as Twitter user James Boyd noted, this isn’t “unexpected” to anyone living in the real world…

Obama’s jobs record has been dismal for a long time. Despite the reality of it all, Obama has claimed for nearly six years now that he has been responsible for “creating” net new jobs in every jobs report since 2010. But whether you believe the Bureau of Labor Statistics claim or not, even that sunny assessment vanished for the May jobs report as the bureau reported a net loss of 1,000 jobs in August. So for the first time since February 2010 the U.S. private sector officially lost jobs.
Indeed, Barack Obama has presided over the worst, slowest “recovery” in American history. After more than seven years in office, the Obama economy has yet to match the usual 3.0 percent economic growth figure — not even once.
Of the 44 presidents that have led the United States, Obama will be the only one to have failed at meeting that goal.
Below, Fox News contributor and ex-Democrat Harlan Hill unleashes on the Obama administration for continuing to deny that there is a problem with job growth.
Obamanomics: Lackluster growth, inadequate incomes, declining job creation.
