The oldline media were preparing us to see the expected (and anemic) 120,000 or so net jobs created last month as good news for Team Obama. Then the actual numbers came in this morning: a mere 18,000 new jobs, and unemployment back up to 9.2 percent. Is there any doubt now, two years into the “recovery,” that this president is either too stubborn, too ideological, or too clueless to change his dismal policies? The only questions that remain are whether Republicans will let him drown politically, or throw him a lifeline, and whether voters will finally wise up and say No to a second term for this unqualified president.
