Unemployment Drops To 9%

I blame Obama.


The unemployment rate fell by 0.4 percentage point to 9.0 percent in

January, while nonfarm payroll employment changed little (+36,000),

the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Employment rose in

manufacturing and in retail trade but was down in construction and in

transportation and warehousing. Employment in most other major

industries changed little over the month.
