Somewhere In September!

Nothing is working. Second term curse in full steam.

We're less than a few months from election day. The Democrats are on the verge of losing control of Congress. The president's job approval is worse. The president and his party have not accomplish much during the time Republicans took control of the House of Representatives.

Although, the Congress is equally worse than Obama, the Republicans actually have more enthusiasm when it comes to voting this session. They want to beat Obama.

This jobs report is perfect for the Republicans to win on the message that "Obama is not working". 

Again the mood of the country sour. On not only the president, but the Democrats and Republicans as well. The constant gridlock and the president's refusal to go after the Republicans left us in the mess.

The president is probably glad to go overseas. He is trying to get aid in the fight against the Islamic State and Boko Haram. He wants the North Atlantic Treaty Organization to stop the fighting in Israeli/Palestine and the Russian Federation/Ukraine crisis.

The job market was lousy again in August after several months of decent growth. Employers added just 142,000 jobs to non-farm payrolls, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on Friday, the worst month for job growth this year. It fell short of the 223,000 economists expected, according to a tally. It was also well below the recent pace of job growth, which had averaged more than 200,000 jobs per month so far this year.

The unemployment rate dipped to 6.1 percent from 6.2 percent in July, matching the lowest rate in nearly six years. But that was mainly due to the fact that 64,000 people gave up looking for work, taking themselves out of the ranks of the officially unemployed.
