(Reuters) - Employers cut back on hiring in April and more people stopped looking for work, troubling signs for President Barack Obama whose re-election prospects could hinge on his handling of the economy.
Employers added 115,000 workers to payrolls last month, the Labor Department said on Friday. It was the third straight month in which hiring had slowed, intensifying fears the U.S. recovery is losing momentum.
Even a slight drop in the unemployment rate to 8.1 percent had a dark tone because the fall was due entirely to people dropping out of the workforce.

Given who the GOP is nominating to run against Obama, it will be a wasted opportunity at best.
My apologies to Bozo.
I don’t trust any of the gov’ts numbers..
As a matter of fact IF the gov’t gives ANY numbers YOU KNOW its much worse..
No matter what numbers you know its a lie.. its not political its a LIE..
Whoever believes these numbers are apparatchiks, DRONES, Liars..
YES, thats right those on FOX News as well..
Obama is disassembling the United States ON PURPOSE...
EXACTLY like he said he would do.. its not a mistake its ON PURPOSE..
UNLESS someone says it ON PURPOSE....... THEY ARE LYING..
Cloward-Piven and “Rules for Radicals”(Alinsky) is quite clear..
Its(the sedition) layed out exactly the way it is happening..
The FBI is sleeping like a Wino in Times Square..
Why NOT.. Obama OWNS the FBI and Justice Department...
UNLESS they want to aid in the Honkifcation of some Latino in Florida..
(Still think Repub are making mistake, running ONLY on Economy; without ever mentioning any of the issues that so threaten America at the behest of Obama,Inc.)
Maybe it is the not going 'negative' MO; they so dearly believe in. No one offers why this is a good idea; particularly when the negatives are 'true'. It takes Leadership, of course; to tell the truth.
By their math, where less people working causes the unemployment rate to go down, I’m afraid that when they get it to 0% none of us will have jobs.
Major Companies are about to announce huge layoffs. Mine does it piecemeal so as not to attract attention.
With the media reporting the ‘official’ unemployment rate at a laughable 8.1% and falling, they should have it down to about 5% by election time. The media will be blowing their trumpets for obama’s re-election base on the miraculous recovery of the economy.
