Does anyone looking at the chart below believe it? Didn’t think so. It’s called manipulation of data at the least. It even has the signature Obama blue and red coloring. How cute. Where did you get this chart, Mr. Obama? Fantasy Island?
If you are telling us thatyou, the Democratic Congress and the Stimulus have created 600,000 jobs, how come unemployment is hovering at 10% nationwide and 15% in Michigan? Why are all the states hollering because they are running out of unemployment funds, and Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) is yelping (I’ll show the video below) on Capitol Hill about why unemployment benefits haven’t been passed? Anyone wishing to see the link to the chart below it is here.
Mr. Obama, your little chart is pretty much alluding that as usual you are again playing the blame it on Bush game. And frankly, sir, we are tired of hearing that excuse.
Let’s face it, Mr. Obama. Most of the “jobs” you’ve created are temporary census workers, about 225,000 of them, and roadwork. If you weren’t paying up to $10,000 for ARRA signs, like the one below at Dulles Airport, maybe, just maybe, there would be some dollars for unemployment.
Rep. Darrell Issa of the House Oversight Committee is reportedly investigating why these signs cost so much. And Rep. Dave Camp of the Republican House Ways & Means Committee has his own little chart that tells us 48 out of 50 states have lost jobs. Only North Dakota, Alaska & DC have created jobs since the Stimulus. Yep, DC. Sure can believe that one. But how are you gonna explain Rep. Camp’s chart, Mr. Obama? It’s in direct contradiction to yours.
This morning, we received the June employment report. It reflected the planned phase out of 225,000 temporary Census jobs. But it also showed the sixth straight month of job growth in the private sector. All told, our economy has created nearly 600,000 private sector jobs this year. That’s a stark turnaround from the first six months of last year, when we lost 3.7 million jobs at the height of the recession.
And as promised, here is Ryan’s little diatribe:
For once, Mr. Obama, please don’t treat us like we are sheep who are know-nothings. We are educated on the facts and deserve that amount of respect. We know the facts.
And a h/t to Alden Weiss for finding this great morphing map of unemployment:
Mr. Obama. Who do you think most people will believe on this one?

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES That’s right. Donald Trump, in South Carolina, came out in favor of Common Core education standards. Has he not been paying attention? Common Core is wildly unpopular in South Carolina. The state had originally implemented the standards and then rescinded them after a public backlash. Jeb Bush, at a Heritage Action forum in South Carolina was booed over the | Read More »
