No "Real Progress" from Obama on Jobs

The opinions expressed by columnists are their own and do not necessarily represent the views of

Unsurprisingly Barack Obama says the November jobs report from the Labor Department proves that "We have made real progress" with job creation and economic recovery. 


Really?  Does he believe this, or did he watch another video with Hillary Clinton? Somehow reality and the truth seem to consistently escape this President.

Had Barack Obama removed his rose-colored glasses for just a moment he might have noticed that there are now 209,000 more people unemployed than in January, 2009 – the month he took office. 

He also might have noticed that the number of people unemployed increased by 170,000 in just the last 30 days over the previous month. 

There are now 8 million more people so dejected and frustrated with the Obama economy that they are not even trying to get a job than when Obama took the oath of office.

And, nearly 300,000 more people are forced to accept part-time employment because of this rotten non-recovery recovery than when Obama arrived at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.  The total number of people working part-time because they can't find full time work remains stuck at twice the level (8.344 million) than normally exists in a healthy economy.  

Real progress?  In your dreams, Mr. President. 

Obama has a keen ability to create his own fantasies, but on Tuesday November 6 the voters will get to deliver a hard dose of reality to Chicago's most notorious community organizer.
