The jobs report fell significantly short of projections, but Democrats are calling it a win anyway.

On Friday, the September jobs number was released and it was less than half of what was expected.

Just 194,000 jobs were added to the payroll in September, falling far short of the 500,000 that were expected, and offering one of the most dismal outlooks from a US jobs report all year.

Monthly job growth this year has averaged 561,000.

Supply chain bottlenecks and Covid-19 contributed to the unimpressive numbers.

Still, Friday’s report from the Labor Department showed that unemployment slipped more than expected, from 5.2 percent in August to 4.8 percent in September. Economists surveyed by Refinitiv had only expected unemployment to slip to 5.1 percent.

As you can imagine… Republicans “pounced.”

GOP lawmakers weighed in as well.

When indeed?

As the new numbers dropped, the cable news journos didn’t have the luxury of time to come up with spin.

The team over at CNBC couldn’t hold back their surprise.

CNN didn’t hold back saying it was the “worst of the year.”

In other words, the Biden Stagflation continues.

Fox’s Charles Payne had an interesting thought…

As did small business expert and entrepreneurship guru, Carol Roth:

As the economy emerges from the havoc of the Delta variant, many employers are still struggling to find workers as those who lost their job due to the pandemic have yet to start looking again.

Federally enhanced unemployment benefits officially ended in September, meaning unemployment checks shrank by $300 a week, but so far ending the benefits has not spurred a momentous return to the workforce.

Governors in about half of US states ended their enhanced benefits before the Sept. 5 deadline.

But the administration and their media sycophants on Twitter are calling it a win anyway.

Here is Turncoat Bill Kristol — a newly-minted Democrat because Orange Man Bad — tweeting out his spin on the jobs report.

Here’s unelected President White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain:

The incestuous relationship between the Democrats and the corporate media is well-known, but in this post-Bad Orange Man age, there are some journos that want to launch their leftwing street cred with a retweet or two from the Chief Joe Biden handler.

A retweet from the White House Chief of Staff seems to be a goal that some journos are shooting for. The more sycophantic to the Biden-Harris administration, the better.

POLITICO reported that Jennifer Rubin, WaPo’s “conservative columnist” who is suddenly pro-Democrat on every single issue, was retweeted by Klain repeatedly. Klain seems to realize it’s not a good look to be exclusive so early on in the administration, so he’s abruptly ceased after the September report. (Watch out, Ron! You know what they say about a woman scorned!)

The thing is, it appears that a number of the political journos are looking for that sweet, sweet Klain retweet. And boy, does he dish them out. (Even to himself!)

Just how bad is Klain at with spin? He retweeted a poll to try to counter the recent Quinnipiac poll that shows that Biden is losing approval on everything — even on who he is as a human being.

This is only going to continue, and the spin is going to be that there needs to be more “investment” because these Dems can’t understand that you can’t spend money that you don’t have.

But then, they put forward this incompetent buffoon as their leader while the sycophantic media covered up the Hunter Biden story, allowed Joe to hide in the basement, and vilified Trump.

Check out Doug’s latest book, The Art of Joe: The Political Brilliance of President Biden. If you have left-leaning family members, workmates, or classmates, to buy several copies and place them in common areas. Make sure you have your video camera ready for when they pick it up and thumb through it because they will be triggered which will make for a great viral video to share across social media. Also, buy a couple for the GOP NeverTrumpers that you know. Finally, both the book’s cover and the epilogue, Notable Quotable Joe are worth the price of admission. We’ve included before and after Biden on Afghanistan. Jen Psaki will no likey this book, but you will. BTW, the book is 95% bereft of any content. Just like Biden’s head.
