Gee, What a Shock
Well, the miracles of miracles has happened: Unemployment is below 8% according to reports this morning. Finally we can understand why Obama fared so poorly in the debate; he was just so overcome by the great news that he just could not share with us. Green shoots!
This is baloney. Apparently, the revised number shows an additional 36,000 jobs in August and the September numbers came in at +114,000. When gas is over $4, heading for $5 in California, and signs around the economy continue to show little to no improvement can anyone truly believe this? Are we supposed to believe that after that abysmal performance that there are no ulterior motives behind the sudden revision and the uptick in September as well?
Color me skeptical to say the least.
A question then: What are we to make of this and are people going to look at this as a sign that if we just give him more time, Obama is going to turn this thing around? Will this really sway people or is this a desperate grasping of straws to take back the news narrative from Romney?
