It's the first Friday in July which means one thing- -  JOB REPORT FRIDAY!The June job numbers were released today and any way you look at them the number are not good. The unemployment rate stayed at 8.2% and the American economy only added about 80,000 jobs.In the last 3 months the number of jobs created hit a two year quarterly low.  Another record we wish we haven't hit - the longest stretch of unemployment above 8% since 1948.

His campaign hasn’t officially released any figures yet, but it has sent word that the Romney team and the Republican National Committee’s Romney Victory Fund jointly raked in at least $100 million in June – $23 million better than Romney’s May haul, which also raised eyebrows, and the highest single-month total ever for a GOP candidate.It may be a few days before numbers for Barack Obama’s campaign are available, but the assumption is that the president was again outraised by his opponent in June. read more
