The U.S. unemployment rate rose to 8.1% as 651,000 jobs were slashed in February

"Hope-n-Change" has been counting on all the government spending to lift the nation out of a deepening recession, stimulating new job growth and economic prosperity to fulfill his grandiose promises.

Fed Chairman Ben Bermanke told Congress this week that recent economic barometers "show little signs of improvement" and has suggested that "labor market conditions may have worsened further in recent weeks."

"The One" has invited Twitter CEO Ev Williams, to the White House to obtain economic advice. Williams said, "This must mean they're really out of ideas."
