That's still an extremely pathetic number, anyway you slice it.

Spoiler


The poor economy is a result of the Great Recession and resulting economic collapse. It was handed to Obama and he's done largely the same as Bush did, as McCain was going to do and as anyone who took the office could do.

It's just that many people are uneducated, don't really know much and are guided by emotion and dogma. They want to blame Obama for their problems as if they didn't, they'd have to face that it Republicans who had the vast majority of the political power in this country leading up to the economic collapse.

Instead of actually thinking though, they'll just blame Obama because they act like emotional children
.
There were no TeaBaggers during he Bush years so obviously they wouldn't have been riled up.

There was however Pork Busters, as an attempt to reign in government waste.

Pork Busters >< Wikipedia >< No excuse for ignorance

Considering that being an ex-employee, Verizon had sent a request, asking me to help them out during the strike. I laughed at it, just as I did when they asked us for pole climbing training virtually every other year.

But, I thought you created this thread to give credit to tea baggers. My mistake. Shouldn't have assumed that you somehow gave up on your daily dose of Obama-hatorade.

I specifically asked for Obamatrons (not liberals) to offer spin to maximize his credit.

I can hardly wait for the "revised" number to come out. Lower as usual, I am sure. But then the truth never profits 0-bama.

Actually, the revised numbers have been trending higher than originally reported.

I'm guessing that the Verizon workers returning to work means that a good deal of last month's job gains will be from the Northeast.
