    The Associated Press: Dismal jobs report sends Dow into 275-point dive

    Obama's flood the basement economic polices have turned into Obama's trickle up poverty. Again as we see jobs numbers are very weak and much less than expected--and at a time--the beginning of summer--when typically this is the time of the year when job growth is at it's strongest. Unemployment ROSE to 8.2% in May 2012.

    Obama - still holding 87% of the US economy hostage through intimidation, inaction and uncertainty.
    Jobs are the side-effect of the grosser incompetence and economic illiteracy..

    BUT -- he's not solely to blame. Pelosi, Reid and all the other leftists are the REAL problem.

    What Obama needs to do is make a clear difference between him and the Republicans.

    Start with a bold package to rebuild American infrastructure, including our electrical grid, our sewers and our bridges.
    Install broadband throughout the nation, especially in business areas.
    Upgrade our airports and railways.
    Fix our dams.
    Convert our coal plants to natural gas.

    Interest rates are near zero and the CBO says we could afford 200 billion for rebuilding and it would generate 5 million jobs. This would put money in peoples pockets. With a middle class with some buying power, business would hire because of "demand", the ONLY real job creator.

    Create a drive towards more teachers, especially in technical fields.

    This would offer a clear contrast between the "let him die" Republicans who want the same austerity that has devastated Europe. Don't just run against Mitt, run against the entire, odious, incompetent Republican Party.

    See who America will pick.
