economy, rally, Democrats, ObamaIn his Jan. 27 State of the Union address, President Barack Obama said, “We are on track to add another 1.5 million jobs by the end of the year.”

It didn’t quite work out that way. Through September, only 613,000 jobs have been added, and economists say the total for the whole year could drop below that level, as many employers are now shedding workers.

Announcing numerical economic goals has backfired on Obama.
