The new jobs report just came out this morning, and…ouch.

Unemployment remained stagnant at 9.1%, which means that the economy gained zero jobs in August. CNBC noted that this was the first time since World War II that the economy had created net zero jobs.

I guess it makes sense that the President whose campaign logo was a big “O” should have an economy that creates zero jobs.
