Unexpected! Roaring Obama Economy Checks in With 9.1% Unemployment

Oh, how Obama and his toady media must long nostalgically for those heady days when unemployment was under 9%. Or should we say weeks.

The 0.5-percentage-point increase in February compared with January is the largest such month-to-month change Gallup has recorded in its not-seasonally adjusted measure since December 2010, when the rate rose 0.8 points to 9.6% from 8.8% in November. A year ago, Gallup recorded a February increase of 0.4 percentage points, to 10.3% from 9.9% in January 2011.

In addition to the 9.1% of U.S. workers who are unemployed, 10.0% are working part time but want full-time work. This percentage is similar to the 10.1% in January, but is higher than the 9.6% of February 2011.

Imagine the derision if a Republican incumbent faced such troubling numbers.
