There is nothing worse then being out there looking for a job that does not exist. Goodbye Pawlenty thanks for the greatest Economic Depression in history.

Yeah because the national (worldwide?) recession is the fault of Minnesota Governor Pawlenty. I'm not sure you understand what power Pawlenty does and doesn't have, but apparently in your mind he's like Superman or something.

And on top of that, keep in mind Minnesota's unemployment rate is below the rest of the country.

Now it's Pawlenty's fault? I think the people who lived through the Great Depression would disagree with you. This was a blip, a grabbing of resources, kind of like the dot.com bubble.

Are these full-time jobs or seasonal holiday retail jobs?

I think you have a typo in there. Didn't you mean to say "bush"?
you're supposed to be chastising Pawlenty for flying around the country and/or having no chance of being president.

either way, it's obviously THEIR fault you are unemployed. Here, have some more food stamps.
