Disappointing job numbers, for a third straight month are now a clear indication that three years after the recession officially ended, the nation's economy continues to sputter.
The U.S. added only 80,000 new jobs in June, far fewer than economists expected.
That kept the unemployment rate unchanged at 8.2 percent.
President Obama admitted he wasn't satisfied with the dismal jobs report, but while on the second day of a campaign bus tour through critical swing states he offered his vision for middle-class Americans. "I want to get back to a time when middle-class families and those working to get into the middle class have some basic security. that's our goal. So we've got to grow the economy even faster. and we've got to put even more people back to work."
Mitt Romney wasted no time pouncing on those poor numbers, interrupting his New Hampshire vacation, addressing that same constituency. "There is a lot of misery in America today. and these numbers understate what people are feeling and the amount of pain which is occurring in middle class America."
While voters are angry about the stagnant economy, political analysts say many are still undecided, saying for a lot of voters feel come November they'll be making a choice between the lesser of two evils.
Do you feel like you'll be picking between the lesser of two evils?
If you were to vote right now, who would you pick?
