White House Attempts to Spin Bad Jobs Report
reddogreport.com ^ | 6-3-11 | Brian O'Connor

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 country’s job situation is actually getting better.

Today’s 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.

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.

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.

Spin This:

Birth/Death Adjustment+ 206,000!

In other words +206,000 of those 54,000 jobs are virtual. or put another way -152,000 jobs created.

And how many high school and college seniors entered the job-search in May? 9.1% is FAR too low.

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.

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.

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?

The answer is clear. They work for Democratic Party but get their paychecks from the left wing papers and networks that employ them.

Ms. Pelosi, is Bush still the worst jobs president since Hoover?

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.

She reported that 2.1 million jobs had been created during the past 15 months. Ironically that is after the 5.1 million jobs lost under Obama and the jackassdemocrats who were in total charge of Congress long before this recession got rolling (2007).

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!

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!!!

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.

Oh, happy day, a-n-o-t-h-e-r good reason to vote for Ohaha. Heck, what's not to like? High unemployment, High food prices, High gas prices, High utility costs, Record home foreclosures, Bank closings, Investment losses, Stock market losses, A world-class culture in decline, overrun with terrorists and illegals, Trillions of US dollars guzzled by Mideast hellholes.... China dumping Treasuries, $14 Billion loss on auto bailouts AND billions more in foreign aid to countries holding US Treasury notes.......as Americans lose their homes and nest eggs.

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.

=========================================

Obama’s 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.
