Job losses climb under Obama

More bad economic news the Obama media may not get around to telling you about:
U.S. Unemployment Rate Jumps to 8.9 Percent (the highest since late 1983).

U.S. employers shed 539,000 jobs in April.

2.6 million Americans have lost their jobs since Obama became president.

Here's a month-by-month look at job losses under President Obama:

January: 741,000

February: 681,000

March: 699,000

April: 539,000
How's that stimulus spending working out so far? Even if Obama's prediction of creating 3 million new jobs is real, that just brings us back to square one. What about the millions of others who lost their jobs during the current recession?

Check out this post at NewsBusters about how the Obama media is manipulating economic news to cover Obama's incompetence.
