Surprise! Unemployment Suddenly Under 8%!

So who takes this seriously?

Other than the usual suspects.

The real question?

Why isn’t the unemployment rate at 5.2%? Which was what Team Obama promised in 2009 — if only Congress passed their stimulus.

Wait! Congress did pass the stimulus! And the unemployment rate is today 7.8?

What happened? Obamanomics is what happened. These numbers are a double-loser for Obama.

First they remind of all those Rosy Scenarios — if only Obama gets his way, unemployment will drop like a stone yada-yada. It soared instead.

Second, this White House has had more credibility problems than Lindsay Lohan. The Internet video killed our ambassador, GM is doing just fine (but no, we can’t let the government sell its stock because the taxpayers would take a bath), Iran won’t get The Bomb, the world will love America because Obama had a Muslim father who became an atheist. And last but not least — if anyone disagrees they have to be a racist!

Unemployment makes it under 7.8% the month before the election? Surprise, surprise, surprise.

Pssssst! Listen! I gotta bridge in Brooklyn I can sell ya… a bargain. Call me.
