Obama is following the pattern set by corporate “leaders” who’s #1 priority is to stay one job ahead of their past mistakes. Rob from the future, eat your seed corn, etc - just do whatever it takes to show “progress” month/quarter over month/quarter. It’s sad that the American people have become so gullible, stupid, or apathetic that they don’t instantly ask the question “what about the other side of the equation” whenever this crap is presented.
It reminds me of the great old George Carlin “Wonderful WINO Radio” bit, where he says “And now for a partial score: San Diego 10”....
I see upon looking at the graph in the article (it took forever to load) that this is the Jobs Created Index, not Jobs Created. The distinction is important — this Index does take into account businesses laying off workers, so it’s a more valid number by itself than what I was talking about.
And that doesn’t look good either. It’s getting into the range that was the free-fall of 2008.
