President Barack Obama said on Friday the jump in the unemployment rate to 10.2 percent in October was a "sobering" figure that underscored the economic challenges ahead.

That’s what he said last month.
Hussein is off the coke?
Thank you Jimmy Carter. Didn’t want to re-live the Carter years, but here we are.
L.O.L.!....Is that what he calls it?....
Sobering? Time for another beer summit!!
When you’re drunk with power, you’re going to have sobering experiences.
Note to Obama: When Robert Reich (for heaven’s sake) says you’re spending too much time on healthcare and not enough time on jobs...Dude, it’s time to remember it not all about YOU. You’re making your own party nervous. They’re starting to envision a House and Senate that’s Democrat-free.
Sobering? This should have been a good solid kick in the gluteus maximus, hard enough to cause nosebleed.
There is no need for the stimulus, if this is the outcome anyway. Repeal it. Now. Today. At least that will go far to reduce future deficits.
Pay attention to the REAL problems of this country, not some fanciful idea that we “don’t have access to health care”.
We don’t have access to the gold in Ft. Knox, either.
I bet when he got back to the oval office away from the cameras, he and Rahm were laughing their a$$e$ off.
They’re going to have to start spiking the Kool Aid.
My thoughts exactly ... I wonder if ballerina-boy Rahm still wears his tutu.
sobering: Obama speak for I’m all set, too bad you’re not. So sad, too bad. I need another date night in NYC.
A year and a half ago a 5% unemployment rate was an unqualified disaster and failure of leadership.
10% is only sobering now? After spending a trillion and a half dollars?
President Barack Obama said on Friday the jump in the unemployment rate to 10.2 percent in October was a “sobering” figure.... but first I want to give a shout out to my friend who’s here today.......
with this lousy week of news, I plan on spending Friday night : non-sober.
So Clueless has been under the influence for the last 10 months.
Just tell the arrogant b****** to produce a birth ceritifcate and we get get a real President.
I dont think he should jump to conclusions about the economy.
But not too sobering to prevent a “shout out” to all my unemployed homeys out there in poverty land! Break out the Kobe beef!
Plan: Dump the rest of the Stimulas money into jobs in 2010 to buy votes for next Nov.
What we need is more economic stimulus. Tell the Fed to print up a few trillion more $$$ That will make the GDP go up and just watch the jobs miraculously appear.
Shoot, Barry's making Jimmuh look competent. At least we had Brother Billy to laugh at...Santeria Grandmama has been confined to the cellar.
I remember it well and can see it happening again.
I was in my high school years and trying to find part time work anyplace I could just for Saturday night date money and gas for the car. Nobody was hiring. It was the same reply, “sorry, were not hiring, but we will take you application”, and it was placed on a stack already a foot high. I never did get called back for an interview. When I got out of the Navy in the middle of Reagan's term, help wanted signs were common place on store front windows. It was a whole different home, than the one I left.
What a piece of $#!t this guy is!
Right, more talk from the appeaser. When does he start his job again?
Poor Malia learned the definition of "sobering", after her daddy broadcast her "73" on a science test to the entire effin' country.
I look forward to his unemployment. Can’t come soon enough.
How else you gonna consolidate power with people having their own money?
You gotta make em dependent on government, job #1!
What a wonderful thought. Don't torture us with visions of a paradise that will never be.
Oh heck, it’s not that bad.
Only 16 MILLION people are out of work.....
-that’s ONLY 16 MILLION people that can no longer support their families and contribute to our economy or pay taxes.
-that’s ONLY 16 MILLION people that are patiently waiting for Obama’s “shovel ready jobs”.
-that’s ONLY 16 MILLION people whose families will be a growing drain on our economy and financial resources.
Heck, Obama has probably saved TRILLIONS of jobs, what the heck does America want.... he’s only been in Office for a year.
Of course, knowing the governments record of lying to We the People, those figures are likely way under... and it’s more likely that we have well over 20 to 25 MILLION victims of Obama’s incompetence.
Those unemployed folks could help make their dollars stretch if they would simply follow the advise that Obama has given in the past... “check your tire pressure”.
Was he drunk?
Jobs are riding out on the deficit trade winds to the rest of the world for 10 years. Why are we surprised at the rising number?
The jobs are not being replaced by private business. Reliance on government is increasing. Socialism is growing. [BTW It aint Obama, its exporting our economy, stupid.]
We have to produce more of what we consume to recover jobs.
Sorry but it is more than “sobering”. It is evidence of what you and the liberal congress’ policies do, it kills jobs.Until you all stop trying to pass the Healthcare takeover, Cap and Trade, Card check, and all of the other liberal fantasy bills we will continue to see these type of job losses.
Your presidency is sobering, mr. obama.
And I’m not even drunk.
Obama calls “present” to jobless rate.
By the time we see the last of Zero, we'll look back upon 1976-80 under Carter as "the good old days."
Obama: I am so upset. I’ll be out on the golf course until further notice trying to deal with this.
Date Night! Or is it live music party night? Are the Bulls on?
The big difference between the two: Jimmy was well-intentioned, but amazingly incompetent; Obama is evil-intentioned and, apparently, pretty competent....
