A really bad, awful, horrible jobs report for May. The economy added only 69,000 jobs, which is anemic, and the unemployment rate ticked up to 8.2%. They were expecting 150,000 jobs, which still isn’t great.
It gets worse. The March and April jobs numbers were revised down by 49,000.
Lots of F-bombs dropping in the White House and Chicago this morning, lots of high-fives in Boston among the Mitt men.
Green shoots seem to be turning to dust.
One bright spot for Obama is that except for Florida, things are better in the swing states than they are nationally. So voters may be happier where he needs them the most.
