Posted on 06/03/2011 10:07:30 AM PDT by Justaham
Even though unemployment rose to 9.1% for the month of May, the White House wants you to believe this is good news. According to Obama economic advisor Austan Goolsbee, the countrys job situation is actually getting better.
Todays employment report shows that private sector payrolls increased by 83,000 [54,000 net] in May and the unemployment rate ticked up to 9.1 percent.
There are always bumps on the road to recovery, but the overall trajectory of the economy has improved dramatically over the past two years.
The monthly employment and unemployment numbers are volatile and employment estimates are subject to substantial revision. Therefore, as the Administration always stresses, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report.

They are sinking in their own crap pile......
Here’s The White House’s more detailed official spin of the jobs report.
“.... it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report - unless it makes us look good.”
Unfortunately, the rest of the country is sinking as well...
Ya ya, and Obama’s the best president we ever had; Bill Clinton is an honest man; Louis Farrakhan love Jews...
Lies, lies and more damn lies.
If a truth is ever spoken by anyone of the Obama administration, my heart will surely stop. Then, if I have any left, you may put pennies over my eyes.
I am so sick of the lies, lies and more damn lies.
The economy is great.
Anyone who says otherwise is a racist. You’re not a racist are you?
Without Obama, unemployment might have reached a peak of 9% last year before recovering quickly and fully. Thanks to Stimulus, TARP, QE, QE2, Cash-for-Clunkers, and ObamaCare, we're still above that level, and this Great Recession (Great Depression 2) is being described as the new normal. How do you spin that as good news and get any intelligent person to take you seriously? It's a good thing for them that they only have to deal with journalists.
The idiots on the left can call me a racist all day long....I don’t give a crap anymore.
And......Jeremiah Wright is not a “Black Racist”, and....Michelle Obama does not hate America, and....Van Jones is not a “Black Racist” and communist to boot, and....POTUS Obama is not a Muslim, etc.,etc. Every month that the economy gets worse, Obama loves it. Why? It tears down America and “all” its people!!!!
ZERO is going to find himself plagiarizing Carter’s malaise speech real soon.
There out there doing the “blame Bush” BS yet again!
That was 2010 spin
Anything this commie bunch does to destroy this country is answered with an even more ominous and destructive solution. Their useful idiots believe he is really trying hard but Bush sunk everything so badly that Obama’s solutions will just take a little longer.
Graduates won’t go into the market until the June job report. (Until it is “seasonally adjusted” to may the Obama jobs report in June go up anyway.)
Ronald Reagan is ON THE WAY!!!
Subtract the 25,000-30,000 new hires at McDonald’s and you have a really pathetic employment number. Not a peep from the state-run media,though, sneering that these jobs are menial “hamburger flipping jobs,” as they most surely would be doing if a Republican were in office.
Barack Obama is making life in America an existence.

It would have been much worse if Bush was still president~!
After all it was almost 6% under Bush. He did something on purpose to make it go to 11 percent. But Nice wonderful Obama (PBUH) kept it to around 9%. Except when it was almost 10%.
I know he promised it would never go past 8% if we let him spend $trillions of “stimulus” but Bush was so evil he made it go past that even AFTER HE WAS PRESIDENT~! How evil is THAT~!!??!?!?!?
So it is STILL Bush’s fault, he’s so evil. Wasn’t Bush so evil?
That is why Obama got us out of Gitmo where that evil Bush got us. And afghanistan. And Libya. And Egypt -Bush caused Libya and Egypt and Sirya and Tunisia and Liberia after he was not even in office anymore too~!!
How can Bush BE SO EVIL!?!?!?!?!??
Obama's people are the most brazen liars I have ever seen in public service. Every factual economic indicator since Obama was elected to office, is at odds with the spin from the White House and the media.
There was an article on the Dow going to 20,000 by year’s end...
Bush to Obama: we want you to succeed (personaly or in terms of performance of America? One still wonders.)
In any case, Obama sure took that to heart and “succeeded”, like a bunch of rioters at Dunkin Donuts who break everything for a few free donuts, destroying and raping the machines for good.
This is what we get for an economy... a rape now and then, forgive and forget, don’t lose your power, keep being stuck on stupid, let the criminals run.
And isn’t it interesting how, since the last Birth-Death model adjustment was made in January (by which the BLS essentially admitted that 300K jobs previously assumed to have been created were in fact, illusory), the adjustment has been positive for each succeeding month of 2011?
If the vast majority of Americans aren't cognizant of that fact, and don't vote this dangerous moron out of office next year, this country will go to Phase Two. Guaranteed.
I'd like to see someone actually raping a donut machine!
So? The crapweasles at the Rancid Media are spinning this as an Obama triumph. How do we break through the static?
As Charles Krauthammer has said, 2012 is going to be about Evil Bush and white racism. The campaign is already set. It will be the most vile campaign in Dem history, and that’s saying something.
Where is that howling media that used to attack Bush and his administration day in and day out?
The answer is clear. They work for Democratic Party but get their paychecks from the left wing papers and networks that employ them.
Disgusting and reprehensible.
Now if the MSM would just stop covering for the WH.
Don’t tempt the Weiner...
This idiot-ridden administration has been “spinning” since the very first day it took office.....=.=
Ms. Pelosi thinks unemployment (unemployment compensation) stimulates the economy. Following that reasoning, it wouldn't surprise me that in the month(s) before the election, the unemployment rate will drop drastically because the Obama regime will classify anyone receiving unemployment compensation as being "employed".
Is this far reaching thinking? No, because it involves the same bunch of Socialists that with a straight face and no shame claimed that serious inflation didn't exist and proved it by eliminating gasoline and food prices from the basket of goods used to calculate the numbers.
Remember when they talked about Bush being “out of touch”?
No matter what the nightly news is claiming, someone sitting at home without a job whose friends are also unemployed is not going to buy this. Someone working at a marginal job because at least it’s a job is not going to buy this. Thanks to socialism, that’s a huge number of dissatisfied voters, and they will all blame Obama, all the more so because he’s so detached from it all, enjoying his golf outings while they are taking home less per week than it costs to play one round.
Look for him to start demagoguing Grrrrrreedy Employers for sitting on all that cash instead of hiring. It’s about the only play he has left.
Take just his stimulus of 1 trillion and divide that by the actual 1.8 million jobs in the past 15 months and you get.......$555,555 per job. Great job incompetents!
—More like a pothole on the trail to oblivion.
Are you suggesting that the media should be more critical of Zero's abject and destructive incompetence, and his reprehensible, near treasonous conduct in office?
Sheeesh....the media is so far up Obama's butt, I don't think they're even dimly aware of what he's doing to the country. As far as they're concerned, there's nothing to report.
But - Sarah Palin is making them chase her bus! That's a serious OUTRAGE!!!
Obama said at the auto presser that he’s “created over 2 million jobs” in just over a year...
Coincidentally 2 million people- statistically- left the labor force in the last year:
Just like single-entry bookkeeping - rife with opportunities for fraud. The gross number of anything doesn’t matter; what matters is the net. The Clueless Wonder could have created 1 billion jobs, but if his policies also destroyed 1.1billion other jobs, then his net effect on the economy has been negative, regardless of the gross number of jobs supposedly created.
More like Commie Mommie, Community Organizer IEDs placed down the road.
Who knew Ohaha was a financial genius? And besides, Obama needs another four years so Michelle can gallivant around the globe in designer fashions, stay at luxe hotels, and eat lobster (sniffle).
DNC ALSO GLEEFUL There was happy talk at a recent DNC conclave of his supporters about why Ohaha "deserves" to be reelected, and, why it is important for the DNC to make that happen............
(Sniffle) That's so true.
Obamas approval ratings appear to have steadily risen the past two months (course they only polled Dems). Getting rid of putrid Rahm, stashing the execrable Gibbs and Axelrod out of sight (behind the scenes in the reelection effort) was a good thing for Ohaha. And Pelosi out of the way, no longer praising Ohaha, and his healthcare plan, is also working well.
But look closely, voters.... as 2012 looms, Ohaha's looking less human by the minute---more like a vote-crazed, wild-eyed robot, mouthing sound bites.
SEE THE SYNCHRONIZED CANDIDATE Stay tuned. From hereonin everything he says will sound like a focus group sound-bite......with pre-programmed voice inflections, and synchronized hand and head gestures.
