54,000 more jobs lost. How's that "Recovery Summer" working out?
O'Boobie is supposed to make a statement at 10 a.m. to outline new plans, but they have directed staff not to refer to them as stimulus.
Meanwhile, he is suing an Arizona sheriff for attempting to enfore the law.
Lets have a moment of silence for November 4, 2008, the day America, as we knew it, died.

Why is it, when these numbers are announced, the media preceeds the story with 'unexpected' or 'unanticipated'?
Do they really believe the force of Obama's will is going to lower unemployment?

Actually according to the Keystone Research Center without the stimulus the unemployment rate could be around 16% nationwide and 14% in Pennsylvania.

I'm not talking about someone's opinion of what it might have been. I'm talking about what it is. There is a difference. Some of us deal in reality, facing whats in front of us, while others pretend its something else, and spin things attempting to gain some political advantage, which if successful they know not what to do with.

You've got a few professors and a crapload of union shills. What direction do you think this was going to take? When you read the "research" piece, it's a poorly-written sycophantic attempt to influence public policy. It relies on "guesstimates" produced by others with no critical analysis of options. Having reviewed your source material, it is clear that it is sorely lacking in facts to support its hypothesis.

Actually that is hardly an opinion. Unlike your "opinion" that there was campaign finance reform passed after 2002...an incorrect opinion I might ad. The Keystone Research Center is not politically affiliated with either party and is non profit so they have nothing to gain by misrepresenting their findings.

It would be 17 % if it was not for the bush tax cuts ...thats my opinion.

all this is, is liberals trying to justify Obamas lie that we need to pass the terrible bill to keep us at 8% unemployment...another liberal lie.

Obama made a prediction, not a lie. You seem to have trouble understanding the difference. Do you really think Obama has some super powers and can exactly predict the future? That's funny. His prediction wasn't far off either. What was it,+2%?

Could be? That's like saying with more money we could make unemployment go no higher than 8%--oh wait, Obama did say that.
You can't prove a negative. Your argument is specious.

WOW thats a total lie...that was not a prediction that was a selling point of why we needed the stimulus now...

I guess then that you would say that Bush had a prediction there was WMD's in Iraq right...

NOT FAR OFF??? How many job are in that 2%. 2% is HUGE.

WHAT... really are you serious?

It has climbed as high as 10.6%. But that doesn't mean his margin of error was 2%; it's actually 32.5%. That's not even close. I could have asked a classroom of third graders for a number between 5 and 15, and most of them would have been closer.

Actually thanks for the source...it shows that the make up of the board covers all sections of economy from unions, to scholars, to accountants.....yet still you find something to cry about.

If you think having nearly 3/4 of the board as union representatives, 17 percent professors, a priest and an attorney who contributed tens of thousands of dollars to Dems in the last election cycle is somehow covering "all sections of economy," you have a very warped idea of how the economy works. In fact, I bet 3/4 or more of that board has never had to make a payroll.

Actually I consider it a fair mox...do you have facts that show their reports are biased? Post your facts?

Do you have any facts about your campaign contributions? Post them.

Like I said...just something to cry about.
