Seven out of the 10 presidential toss-up states have lost jobs since President Obama took office, and the unemployment rate is higher today in six of those states than in January 2009, according data released Friday by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The state data underscore the fact that, despite the recent drop in the national unemployment rate to 7.8%, the nations jobs picture remains bleak, particularly in states that Obama and Mitt Romney are fighting over.

Yup, that is what is called “Obamanation.”
Yeah, but now all those unemployed people have food stamps and extended unemployment. They are on a vacation in Obamaland.
Had to fix part of that sentence!!
You forgot ObamaPhones!!
My curiosity is up. So could someone answer the following questions:
what state was number 1? what were the states ranked 1 to 10?
What were the bottom 10 states, if Massachusetts was ranked 47?
Unemployment: What was Massachusetts unemployment rate and rank at the same time?
Was Massachusetts unemployment rank also 47, or wsa it higher?
That is, what was Massachusetts unemployment rate and where did this rate rank among the 57, I mean, 50 states? Sorry, I was thinking in Obama terms when I said 57 states.
