The Unemployment Rate Miracle - And Response (3)

Friday, October 5, 2012

Yea right. Never underestimate the audacity of Chicago-style politics. It's a nice way to divert attention following a poor debate performance.  

After the next debate on the 16th, don't be surprised if we learn that health care costs have declined, Al Qaeda has disbanded and our national debt is being adjusted down from $16 trillion to $12 trillion due to an accounting error.

Yea boy, I hate good news too.  On the other hand, our debt would have been many trillions less without invading that country that didn't do anything to us, just so we could control their undeveloped crude oil reserves.  

Not to mention the loss of over 4,000 brave U.S. soldiers.  I can nevr vote for that party the rest of my life.     

It's the GOP party by the way, and that country was Iraq.

You've got that right, Mr. Montgomery.  Vote for the party that helped give us 54,559,615 deaths since 1973.  That's a little under 4,000 innocent lives lost every day for the past 39 years.  I can never vote for anyone who is okay with that, not for the rest of my life. 

It's the Democratic party by the way, and the weapon was abortion on-demand. 

Jeff Davis

There is no way the Obama campaign or anyone else had any effect on the jobs report.  Any suggestion to the contrary is nonsense and a slap in the face to he hard working people who put that together.  This country is starting to get a bad habit of blaming things they don't like on politics. 

Look, anyone who cannot admit that the economy hasn't gotten better is blinded by political rage.  A few years ago there appeared to be no end in sight and everyone feared for their job and bank account.  Discussion on if a bank might fail was commonplace. 

Today, while things may not be as great as they once were, and it may take a long long time to get back to that, things are genuinely better.  We are on a road to recovery, that means that ever so slowly the jobs number will creep down.  I don't think 8.2 to 7.8 is a big leap. 

By the way, blaming the GOP for deaths in wars and Democrats for abortions is nonsense.  We might as well blame all Muslims for terrorism, and blame all Latinos or illegals stealing our jobs.  Oh wait, we do.
