“In a Mixed Jobs Report, Ammunition for All Sides on the Economy” (TIMES, 4/7/12)


     “Ammunition for all sides” for a debate but the Democrats are in power and could initiate some action.

     As difficult as it is to rule sensibly in a presidential election year, the Obama administration has to push harder for a massive federal jobs program.  Even if the Republicans defeat its passage in the House of Representatives, the American people will see who is trying to deal with the unemployment problem.

     Waiting until they win the election still more than six months away is a dangerous gamble for the Democrats, even considering the pathetic candidates the Republicans have paraded before the electorate.  If the employment situation does not improve, the Democrats could lose in November.
