BREAKING: US March Jobs Report:88,000 net new payrolls;7.6% U-3 unemployment rate

— James Pethokoukis (@JimPethokoukis) April 5, 2013

WSJ: About 496,000 people dropped out of the work force. There were 11.7 million workers who wanted a job but couldn’t find one

— Stew (@StewSays) April 5, 2013

Hey, look, it’s another “unexpectedly” crappy jobs report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. How bad is it?

Context: How long will it take US economy to return to full employment at 88,000 jobs a month?Never

— James Pethokoukis (@JimPethokoukis) April 5, 2013

That’s some recovery!

I just want to point out that this latest jobs report doesn’t include Richie Sambora leaving Bon Jovi.

Let’s all count the seconds before @presssec blames Obama’s hideous jobs numbers on the sequester.

— Neal Boortz (@Talkmaster) April 5, 2013

Is the media in vertigo mode? Spin, baby spin!

— LilMissRightie (@LilMissRightie) April 5, 2013

Like a record, baby!

Recent policy developments that I don’t like must be responsible for the continuation of a 4-year employment stagnation. #punditry

Out: Recovery summer. In: Sequester spring!

Never mind that even if the sequester was to blame, it’s Obama’s sequester. Spin! Spin until you’re dizzy!

“This is not a good number” – Austan Goolsbee, then blames sequester

— James Pethokoukis (@JimPethokoukis) April 5, 2013

Surprisingly, Goolsbee says maybe people will realize the sequester was a bigger deal “than we thought.” CNBC didn’t agree.

Someone give @austan_goolsbee a Tums

March jobless report is the first gauge of the impact of federal #sequester cuts. Unemployment down to 7.6% because of workforce drop-outs.

— PETER MAER (@petermaercbs) April 5, 2013

Apoor March emp. rpt. Some evidence of sequester impact. Just 95k pvt sector jobs created. Below low end of range of estimates. A clunker

— JohnCanally (@JohnCanally) April 5, 2013

Sequester already having an effect. Only 88k jobs. GOP now playing defense…again.

— Jon Summers (@JonSummersdc) April 5, 2013

7,000 public sector jobs lost in March. Sequester effect? I think so! @speakerboehner and the @gop you did it! Congratulations!

— Kerin(@cavsfanaholic) April 5, 2013

Jim Kramer just LOST ALL CREDIBILITY…HE’S Blaming SEQUESTER ON jobs report. Government ONLY lost 7,000 JOBS! Don’t EVER BELIEVE HIM @cnbc

— Prudence (@dennygirltwo) April 5, 2013

Sequester, eh?

This jobs report is more a story of the impact of the payroll tax hike than the sequester.

— Zachary A. Goldfarb (@Goldfarb) April 5, 2013

If the retail jobs number is bad, that would suggest raising a tax–i.e., the payroll tax–was a mistake. What? A tax increase a mistake???

— John Podhoretz (@jpodhoretz) April 5, 2013

Payroll tax, not sequester… drudge.tw/ZDEiOj

— DRUDGE REPORT (@DRUDGE_REPORT) April 5, 2013

Shhhhh. RT @lachlan: RT @neil_irwin: One of the biggest job losers was retail, -24k jobs, which doesn’t fit sequester effect story.

— FloridaJayhawk (@FloridaJayhawk) April 5, 2013

Goolsbee is just a dishonest person…PERIOD! RT @jimpethokoukis: “This is not a good number” – Austan Goolsbee, then blames sequester

— LCiii (@lybr3) April 5, 2013

Bull. Furloughs just beginning, sequester BHO idea. “@mcbridetd: this is what happens when your party urges austerity policies.”

— Laura Ingraham (@IngrahamAngle) April 5, 2013

The president’s policies continue to make it harder for Americans to find work j.mp/XWqeVj

— Speaker John Boehner (@SpeakerBoehner) April 5, 2013

Update:

The White House is blaming sequestration too.

WH puts out statement on jobs, suggests sequester playing a role –whitehouse.gov/blog/2013/04/0…
