"Unless the economy turns around in the next 18 months, Obama is on track to have the worst jobs record of any president in the modern era. That would be an accurate statement."

  • ABC News: "The Nation's Jobs Picture Dimmed In May." "The nation's jobs picture dimmed in May as employers added just 69,000 jobs and the unemployment rate ticked up to 8.2 percent, a continuation of a long, slow employment recovery that began 33 months ago." 

(Susanna Kim, "May Unemployment Rises To 8.2 Pct," ABC News, 6/1/12)
