'No chamba Obama' ('No jobs Obama') is the real story in Hispano districts

Silvio Canto, Jr.
Yesterday, I attended a Hispanic event in the Dallas area.  It game me a chance to talk to a lot of Hispanics about the economy.  Most of them were young professionals and business owners.

On the economy, I heard this over and over again:  "No hay chamba" (no jobs) or "La cosa esta dificil" (Things are hard).  Not one person told me that the economy was great! 

I did not see the same "crazy love affair" with Obama that I saw years ago.   Some people are still making excuses (i.e. "he inherited the worst economy in the history of civilization" meme) but that's even less intense as it used to be.

These people are not economists.  They are real people living in the real Obama economy.   As I learned last night, the real Obama economy is very hard, specially for people in Hispanic districts.

It reminded me of what Chad Stafko told AT readers last week:

"So you voted for Barrack Obama back in 2008, and perhaps you helped to re-elect him in 2012.  How's that working out for you?

Chances are, not well."

Unfortunately, Hispanics were one of those groups who got really invested in "hope and change".    They are also one of the groups that has seen very little progress under President Obama:

"Unemployment among American Hispanics climbed to 9.4 percent in July, up from 9.1 percent in May and June, and 9.0 percent in April, according to data released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.   

During President Obama's time in office, the number of American Hispanics who are unemployed has increased 161,000--rising from 2,205,000 in January 2009 to 2,366,000 in July 2013.  

BLS defines a person as unemployed if they are 16 years or older and do not have a job, but have actively sought one in the last four weeks. 

The Hispanic community has been hit harder by unemployment in recent years than Americans generally, as the Hispanic unemployment rate has never dropped below 9.0 percent during President Barack Obama's time in office, according to BLS."

Add to this that Gallup just reported a big jump in the official unemployment:  7.7% to 8.9%.

Also, new home sales went down 13.4%.

Maybe some lights are going off in the Hispanic community.  Perhaps people are starting to realize that "si se puede" has become "no se puede".

The real Obama economy is "part time jobs" and lots of business owners who are not hiring because they are operating week to week or scared to death that ObamaCare will be indigestible.

Yes, he is "No chamba Obama."
