PROPAGANDA MINISTER BLAMES POOR JOB NUMBERS ON GOP OPPOSITION TO TAX HIKES
Just 96,000 jobs created in August. 368,000 people drop out of the work force. Male labor-participation rate hits 64-year low. 88.9 million people no longer in labor force. Bottom line? The Regime says "the economy is continuing to improve." Wait - what? Disingenuous, delusional, or both? (Pick "B.") Yes, America, in the wake of today's disastrous jobs report, here's how the Regime chose to spin it:
"While there is more work that remains to be done, today’s employment report provides further evidence that the U.S. economy is continuing to recover from the worst downturn since the Great Depression."
Seriously? Has O replaced his entire economic team with Choom Gang members? On what planet do these people live? Oops- sorry - that would be Planet Obama. On all other planets in the universe, an unemployment rate above 8% 45 months in a row, record numbers of people on food stamps and SSDI every month, and crippling debt - accompanied by a 50% increase in the federal deficit in less than four years don't exactly add up to "a continuing recovery."
In his empty acceptance speech last night, all
Jimmy Carter O could muster was an admonition for us to "be patient." (Memo to O: Remember telling us in 2010 that if you didn't get the job done in three years, you'd be a one-term president? Yeah, I know, Bubba reminded us how much more terrible everything was than you had anticipated- I'm just sayin'.)
In another ridiculous effort to suspend disbelief, O's mouthpiece, Propaganda Minister Jay Carney blamed the anemic jobs report on - wait for it - the Republicans. Yep, Jay's excuse for the bad news? The Republicans' insistence on maintaining "tax cuts for the rich."
Uh-huh, because everyone knows that increasing taxes on small business owners will create a booming job market the likes of which we've never seen, right Jay?
Listen - I understand "spin" as well as anyone, but the tripe coming out of the Regime on a daily basis can only be explained one way: They think we're stupid, America. Reason being, a plurality of Democratic voters either fall into the "less-than-informed" category or the "We know you're lying and we'll lie with you" group, and they assume we're the same. Guess what, O? We're not.
In less than four years, we've gone from O's "Yes we can!" to Bubba Clinton's "Nobody could have!"
November 6 can't get here soon enough.
