Now you know why Obama was so desperate to wave the flag after bin Laden killing!
Even with the unemplyment rate going back up to 9% April saw job growth at 244,000, largely due to the one time hire of 62,000 hamburger flippers at McDonalds. Hardly anything to brag about especially since a year ago Vice Presiden Biden WAS bragging "I'm here to tell you some time in the next couple of months we're going to be creating between 250,000 jobs a month and 500,000 jobs a month." Yeah, well, that promise was worth as much as the big lie that unemployment wouldn't go above 8% if Obama got his way with the $trillion stimulus bill.
It would take more than 300,000 a month in new jobs for a sustained period to do anything meaningful to lower unemployment. And yet, Obama's tax, spend and anti-energy policies are KILLING jobs that would otherwise be created.
The result of Obama's economic policies means the longest, deepest, most sustained period of unemployment since World War II.
Obama's victory lap over bin Laden will soon be over and once again the American people will face front and center the economic debacle that Obama has created!
