President Barack Obama is 55 year old. His job approval is high and he's confident that his soon to be predecessor will carry his legacy forward. Obama hopes that Hillary Clinton will be the next President of the United States.
You know the president goes on his last vacation for the summer recess. He gave his last presser at the Pentagon. He was asked about the presidential campaign. He said that he's not going to waste anymore time on the situation between Hillary Clinton and the other guy. He said that the other guy is "unfit to be the President of the United States."
He also announced that his daughters were on the move as well. Malia Obama was spotted at Lollapalooza with her friends. Sasha was spotted at a restaurant in Martha's Vineyard. She is currently working there serving residents at a local seafood shack.

So far, Republican Donald Trump and running mate Mike Pence have slipped and the party is very concerned that the damage is done.
Here's some news that going to make Trump even more nervous. The jobs report for the month of July has shown a strong bump in the hiring. Over 255,000 jobs were clocked in.
The U.S. unemployment rate will remain at 4.9 percent.
Now as always, you hear the lies and half-truths of the American labor force.
Example: 95 million people aren't working.
The United States population as of today is 322 million. That would be less than 1/3 of the U.S. population.
The reasons to why conservatives ignore the real reasons for 95 million people not working.

The good news is that people are looking for jobs and it's plentiful. The bad news is that the labor participation rate is stalling at 62.8 percent. That means people who gave up looking for jobs is still high.
The good news is that hourly rates have risen. The bad news is that the cost of living will likely go up as well. The first signs of an adjustment is the soda. If you purchased a soft drink at a gas station and it was previously $1.69 and soon it would be $1.89. It would be a 10 percent jump in the price of the drink.
Despite what the naysayers say, we're looking good.
Happy Birthday Mr. Obama. You, Michelle and the daughters will be sorely missed.
