WASHINGTON — U.S. employers added 217,000 jobs in May, a substantial gain for a fourth straight month, fueling hopes that the economy will accelerate after a grim start to the year.

Monthly job growth has now averaged 234,000 for the past three months, up sharply from 150,000 in the previous three. The unemployment rate, which is calculated from a separate survey, remained 6.3 percent in May. That is the lowest rate in more than five years.

In the summer of 2012 according to G.O.P.Fox the sky was falling because the unemployment rate was over 8 percent however the sky is not only still up there but the sun seems to shining . What happened to keep the sky from falling?

Obama was supposed to lead this country into financial ruin.

Don't tell me FOX, Rush, Beck, Hannity, O'Reilly, Malkin, et cetera, ad nauseum were completely wrong!!!
