Net number of non-farm payroll jobs added last month: Zero.

As in zilch. Nothing. Nada. Bupkis.

Administration commentary on this sorry employment picture was as plentiful as the number of jobs created. Perhaps related to the employment picture, Intrade states that President Obama only has a 49.4% chance of being re-elected. Which I guess means that predictions of a White House-directed slime-and-smear campaign come next year may well be quite accurate.
