    This is the same kind of paltry job growth that dogged George HW Bush until early 1992, which by that time it was too late.

      1992 saw the first significant 3rd party candidate since 1968, and the most successful since 1912. There does not seem to be a Ross Perot or Theodore Roosevelt in sight or under cover right now, so that ends up being a net positive for Obama.

      But in general you are right; these numbers canNOT be good news at the White House.
