"Jobs surge," shouts one nationally distributed print headline. "Investors on Thursday seized on robust jobs numbers." This, in response to the Bureau Of Labor Statistics report for June: "Total non-farm payroll employment increased by 288,000." But left out of the euphoria is another part of that same BLS report: "The number of persons employed part-time for economic reasons ( sometimes referred to as involuntary part-time workers) increased by 275,000." The net increase in full time work is . . . 13,000? So this is what passes for robust in the 21st century. And so it goes, with the liberal policies of President Obama leading us down the garden path.

When conspiracists suggested Friday that the Obama administration had engineered a sharp drop in unemployment to aid President Barack Obama's re-election, the response was swift.
It says a lot when a government jobs report is so out of line with reality that no thoughtful person can take it seriously. At best the new unemployment number is a fluke; at worst it is the product of partisan hacks.
Sasquatch might as well have traipsed across the White House lawn Friday with a lost Warren Commission file on his way to the studio where NASA staged the moon landing.
After a poor June jobs report, Maryland has lost more jobs in the first six months of 2012 than any other state in the nation, according to numbers released from the U.S. Department of Labor.
This latest recession started in December 2007. Since the Great Depression 75 years ago, recessions in America have lasted an average of 10 months, with the longest previously lasting 16 months, not counting this latest spooky downturn.
President Obama announced two weeks ago that "the private sector is doing fine." Though he later backpedaled from this remark, he stood by his fundamental contention that the private sector was creating large numbers of jobs, and that more money needed to be spent by the government to keep up the public-sector pace.
