Gosh! What a surprise.

And just wait until Reid lets the Bush Tax Cuts lapse. Then you will really see unemployment spike!

The BLS unemployment figures come out tomorrow. I guess the increase in new unemployment claims will translate into lower unemployment. Isn’t that the way it works? LOL.

It’s “unexpected” if you’re a mongoloid idiot who’s been living on Pluto for the past two years. Otherwise, no one is surprised.

If it's bad, it's unexpected.

If it's good, it's because of The One.

At that point, look for some businesses to pull up stakes from the US for friendlier climes.

But it wont be a tax “increase.” But just a return to where we were before “evil” took over.

But, since I earn less than $250k it wont affect me right? Right? //sarcasm off

They need to rehire a few hundred thousand census workers for a week.

Well, at least it’s not 12%..yet.

When your policies take aim at the job-producing part of the economy and you hit your target, you shouldn’t be surprised when your target stops playing the game. Only in the rage-induced and envy stoked world of whiny little b!tch Obama Jr could this come as a surprise.

The use of the term “Unexpected” is unexpected......

Besides, how can “jobless” claims rise when the economy has already currently IN recovery or fully recovered? Looks like more “Stimulus” is needed. And, this new government fully understands how to make it happen. As soon as they come back from their current monthly vacation.

Why is it, in matters of negative economic news, that to the White House it is always “unexpected”? We have come to expect that the White House will view all negative news as “unexpected”.

Now would be a good time to raise taxes, pass Cap & Trade, use an executive order to grant amnesty to 25 illion illegals, institute more regulations on business, kill BP so they can’t pay for the spill cleanup......... and boycott Arizona.

That will fix things.

What do Census Workers and BP Clean-Up Crews have in Common?

Stuart Varney on FoxNews just said that a second recession is looming, due to recent trend of numbers.

Stimulus money is not being used in the private sector, thus not causing job creation. Private business are still apprehensive of potential future regulations that would strangle them, so they are holding off adding new jobs.

Rate goes from 9.7% up to 9.9%.

[Team Obama will make sure the numbers are juggled so as not to rise to 10% or above.]
