Today marked another “first Friday of the month” that brought with it yet another jobs report that’s been described by many as dismal when compared to expectations:
Another dismal jobs report with just 199k jobs added in December – less than half the 422k forecast.

Today President Biden attempted to put the usual spin on the economic news, but we’re not sure how the White House is going to embrace VP Kamala Harris’ way of “helping”:
The VP had a banner day yesterday: first, she compared Jan 6 to Pearl Harbor and 9/11, then she uttered the actual "M" word (malaise) in an interview with Judy Woodruff on PBS. It's at the 9:40 mark.https://t.co/TiDjxVZW9uhttps://t.co/JZkLpVwBaI

Jimmy Carter will probably be thrilled to know that he’s on the verge of not being the first person Americans think of when they hear the word “malaise.”
The 2024 ads write themselves.
