From the Huffington Post

"Bad news on the economy. It added only 88,000 jobs in March -- the slowest pace of job growth in nine months.

While the jobless rate fell to 7.6 percent, much of the drop was due to the labor force shrinking by almost a half million people. If you're not looking for work, you're not counted as unemployed.

That means the percentage of working-age Americans either with a job or looking for one dropped to 63.3 percent -- its lowest level since 1979.

The direction isn't encouraging. The pace of job growth this year is slower than its pace last year.

What's going on? The simple fact is companies won't hire if consumers aren't buying enough to justify the new hires. And consumers don't have enough money, or credit, or confidence to buy enough.

It's likely Americans are beginning to feel the pinches of January's hike in the payroll tax combined with the government budget cuts known as the sequester. Increases in gas prices haven't helped. All are taking money out of the pockets of most people -- whose job situation remains precarious. So they can't and won't buy much.

One indicator: Retailers cut their staffs in March -- by 24,100.

Yes, the stock market has rebounded. But only a small portion of Americans are affected by the rebound. The richest 1 percent own 35 percent of all shares of stock; the richest 10 percent own 90 percent.

And, yes, housing prices have stopped falling, and construction of new homes has picked up. The construction sector added 18,000 jobs in March.

But the turnaround in housing isn't because prospective homeowners have been able to get new mortgages. It's because investors are buying or building homes to rent. And a buoyant rental market doesn't make most people feel wealthier.

Perhaps the most disturbing aspect of all this is that we're in the fifth year of a supposed economic recovery from the second-worst economic downturn of the past century, and we're still not nearly back on track. Instead, we've had the most anemic recovery in history.

A Gallup survey released Thursday showed that the percentage of Americans holding full-time jobs has remained essentially unchanged over the past year. With 12 million people out of work and another 8 million holding part-time jobs who'd rather have full-time ones, this just isn't nearly good enough."

This is the slowest, most anemic recovery in American history, so put down your trumpets.

CORUPTION; LIBERALS IN ACTION…….ROTTEN TO THE CORE.

Top Dem Warns: Much More to Come...

IRS stalled conservative groups, but gave speedy approval to Obama foundation...
Agency used 'planted' question to reveal scandal...

IRS HID PROBE UNTIL AFTER ELECTION

SEQUESTER JESTERS: WH announces another star-studded concert...

BROKE? Detroit agency spending $22,000 to send employees to Hawaii conference...

IF ITS LIBERAL, IT’S CORUPTED…….THAT IS LIBERALISM THAT IS THE LEFT. Its not just Obama or Hillary, it’s also the people they have hired or appointed that are corrupted as well and the chickens are coming home to roost.

The main purpose of this was to get Benghazi off the front page. Americans might forgive a crooked pressure move, but not letting four Americans die why you watch a Nationals Baseball game like Obama.

Read the article, not just my clip from it. It's a liberal source. It is a house of cards. The author calls it the most anemic recovery in years. Unemployment is down BECAUSE so many have given up looking and are no longer counted. A huge number of those employed are part timers who cant find full time. Housing is up BECAUSE investors are buying property to use as rentals . The middle class is NOT better off.

Read the article, do some research beyond the underground or media matters.
No you are

Why do the trolls insist on using multiple identities to bolster their own positions? Pathetic.

If you feel strongly, then defend your beliefs.

Especially pathetic when one personality cites a source then the other one cites the same one.

From your link:

"It’s important to note that all the evidence — then and now — shows that the talking points always said that the attack grew out of a spontaneous demonstration in response to the Cairo protests. That was in the original draft of the talking points, and it remained in the final draft. There has been no evidence showing an election-year cover-up"
