The economy needs to add ~125K jobs per month to keep the UE rate constant, and at least 2X that to lower the rate. And this does not include workers who drop out of the labor force because of lack of work. If 100K jobs is the best the economy can do after all the stimulus spending and tax cuts so far, it has a long ways to go. Keep in mind that the 2009 stimulus mostly runs out this summer. My guess is an additional stimulus package of some sort may need to be passed later this year.
