It seems the entire Obama administration has been doing roof hits from all the choom smoke swirling around in the White House. The unemployment numbers for July came out, going up from 8.2 percent to 8.3 percent, and the White House (along with the media) is actually celebrating.
“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,” wrote Alan Krueger, Obama’s economic adviser. Choom is apparently some powerful stuff.
They justify their glee by informing us that July’s unemployment numbers are actually only 8.254 percent, as opposed to June’s 8.217.
And really, isn’t that the kind of optimism we all want in the White House? People to tell us that the pain we’re feeling isn’t really all that painful? People to sugarcoat bad news for us? I know I don’t want to be told that what I’m eating came from a dog’s back end. All I need to know is whether or not there’s frosting and sprinkles on it. Spare me the nasty details, please. Oh, Iran is pursuing nukes? Well, the more nukes in Iran’s possession, the fewer nukes in North Korea’s. You should be grateful we’re allowing Iran to acquire nukes, you serfs.
How desperate are these people? Who has ever heard of a president or his advisers telling us that, sure, the official unemployment may be 10 percent, but the actual number is 9.859, so quit whining? Is that how poorly this administration thinks of the American people? That we’ll take whatever they feed us and say “thank you, may I have another?”
Well I will take another. Another president, that is.
