Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

DNC Chair Debbie lies, insists unemployment has NOT gone up under Obama

Video clip must be seen to be believed:

Ed runs the numbers:

  • Jobless rate in January 2009: 7.8%.  Jobless rate in November 2011: 8.6%.
  • Number of employed in January 2009, in thousands: 133,563.  In November 2011: 131,708
  • Civilian participation rate in January 2009: 65.7%.  In November 2011: 64.0%
  • Unemployment level in January 2009, in thousands: 11,984.  In November 2011: 13,303
  • Number of people not in labor force, January 2009, in thousands: 80,554.  In November 2011: 86,558

Whatshername-Schmuck is trying to argue that last month’s drop in unemployment means that unemployment has not gone up under Uhhhh-bama.  That’s like running your credit card up from a balance of $0 to a balance of $10,000, then you pay the balance down to $9,000.  “See?  The debt didn’t go UP…it went DOWN a thousand bucks!”  Um, no…it went DOWN a grand after you ran it UP nine grand.  And you’re proud of that measley one grand?

Additionally, she sure is proud that unemployment fell from 9.0% to 8.6%.  Impressive…except that while 112,000 people found jobs, over 300,000 people gave up looking for work.  The unemployment numbers no longer count people who have exhausted their unemployment benefits and stop looking for work.

I do feel a tad sorry for her (yeah, I know, but it’s only a tad).  She’s been assigned the impossible task of polishing a turd.  She’s polishing as hard as she can, but in the end, her boss’ record is still a turd, and there ain’t no amount of polish in America to get that turd shiny.

  2. Damn, she is so ugly! All the libs seem to have their ugly politics pasted on their faces. And, this one, when she opens her mouth, she lies. Been like that forever, I’d imagine. Anything she says is all bs.
    Liberalism is a mental disorder.

  4. Not to mention, when you try to polish a turd…all you do is spread crap all over the place and get it up under your fingernails….(I’d presume~never actually TRIED it, myself)
    LOVE the credit card analogy…that masterfully demonstrated the utter R-E-T-A-R-D-A-T-I-O-N of the left!!!

  5. People like Debbie Whatshername make me think our country made a huge mistake allowing women to vote….

    And WHAT is the phenomenon that causes progressive women to turn into homely, bitter hags? Destruction of the soul perhaps?

  7. And the sad thing is, a LARGE number of those who “gave up looking” had given up a LONG time ago, but you can’t GET an unemployment check if you confess that you are not actively seeking employment. Once the money runs out for getting paid to CLAIM to be looking, they “all of a sudden” stop looking? mm-hm. I’m also looking for ocean-front property in Arizona.
