The AP chimes in, noting the tepid growth, but suggesting that we just suck it up:blockquote>Even after another month of strong hiring in June and a sinking unemployment rate, the U.S. job market just isn’t what it used to be.

Pay is sluggish. Many part-timers can’t find full-time work. And a diminished share of Americans either have a job or are looking for one.

Yet in the face of global and demographic shifts, this may be what a nearly healthy U.S. job market now looks like.If you replace “a nearly healthy” with “an Obama,” then I totally agree with them.
