    Recovery Summer 3: July Unemployment Up In 44 States - Investors.com

    In another sign of the ongoing jobs recession, fully 44 states saw their unemployment rates climb in July, according to state-level data released Friday by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

    As a result, more than three years after the economic recovery officially started under President Obama, 10 states still have jobless rates of 9% or higher.

    Nevada's jobless rate, for example, climbed to 12%, New Jersey's rose to 9.8% and North Carolina's edged up to 9.6%.

    The states with the highest rates — Nevada, Rhode Island (10.8%), California (10.7%), New Jersey and North Carolina all voted for Obama in 2008.

    The four states with the lowest jobless rates are solidly GOP: North Dakota (3%), Nebraska (4%), South Dakota (4%) and Oklahoma (5%). Heavily Democratic Vermont also had 5%.

    ..........................................

    Since the recovery began in June 2009, the economy has never managed to create more than 275,000 jobs in any given month. After the U.S. stopped shedding jobs, the average monthly gain has been just 122,000, which is below what many economists say is needed to keep pace with population growth.

    By contrast, in the first three years of the early '80s Reagan recovery, the economy created an average of 273,000 jobs a month.

    While 2.7 million jobs have been created since the recession, the number of people who are no longer in the labor force — either they quit looking, have put off looking for a job, or retired — has swelled by an astonishing 7.5 million.

    *******************************

    Yes, we are closing in on four years of Obama and the "Blame Bush" crowd's unwillingness to accept responsibility. I keep hearing about entrenched GOP Tea Party obstructioninists too. It all plays out so sad and so sick when you listen to Mr. Hope and Change sound like Mr. Whine and Blame.

    This is pathetic.

    But, I'll be the left still thinks Obama will win 56 of 57 states........just losing one like Reagan did in '84.

    There are so many small businesses that would start if they didn't see the mountain of paperwork the government forces on them as a deterrent.

    If you believe what most people say, small business is what creates jobs.

    Emperor Obama has a lot of influence over the economy and is batting 100% when it comes to making bad decisions.

    You are now hiding under the idea that he is powerless....yet you bastards still blame Bush.

    Wanting it both ways and believing you can have it both ways......a true liberal.

    Case in point.

    People unemployed under Obama are less unemployed than those unemployed under Bush.

    It's truly an honor to be jobless under Obama.

    Right, USMB Obamabots?

    If The One can stop the rising of the seas, he can fix the economy with a word.
