The May unemployment numbers should have the Obama campaign rethinking their slogan “Forward.” The unemployment rate ticked up to 8.2 percent and only 69,000 were lucky enough to find new jobs. This happened after the April numbers had to be revised down from 115,000 to 77,000. These anemic numbers prove that President Obama’s decades old liberal policies are simply not working to get our economy moving again. The only direction we are moving in is backwards.
The partisans at MSNBC were trying to spin the May unemployment numbers before they even came out, trying to claim that the economy was getting better in presidential swing states. Well, when 8:30 AM EST came around, the news out of the Labor Department was not good for struggling Americans. Once again the “experts” were “shocked” at the bad news. But if you look at the legacy of the liberal Big Government agenda, this shouldn’t be a surprise. The truth is there is no recovery and won’t be with this President who is married to this economy killing ideology.
We are heading into the Obama Administration’s fourth annual “Recovery Summer.” Every year we are promised the president will have a “laser-like” focus on jobs. The fact is that President Obama is more worried about raising $1 billion for his reelection than getting jobs created.
