What a joke. The unemployment rate is now at 9.4% way above the governments "predicted" forcast. We have the heighest rate in the past 25 years of unemployed workers. What happened to those 5 million jobs? Can't blame the old school anymore. This is heppening on The Big "O's" watch.

Not only has Obama never created a job, he hasn't ever worked a normal job in the private sector.

From the article:
The administration's predictions that unemployment would rise no higher than 8 percent already have been shattered.....
Maybe if you could read, instead of blindly following Obama, you would have seen that....simpleton!

Ahhh the Angry SButcher waving his Machette, at all who voice an opinion...good bad or indifferent.

Fact is...could be many months before the un-employed will find jobs, if at all. Certainly people currently out of work, may have lost their jobs, and field of work forever. Try as they may they may not fit into the hiring agenda of OB.

Then what?

A typical type response of high school attitude from anyone who voted for Obama! Grow up a little and research more the next time you vote. And try to sort of act like an adult in the blogs!

The only jobs Obama is going to make are ones paid for by taxpayers, government printing presses, and loans from the chinese government ... Those government jobs are NOT going to help the economy. Unemployment will hit 15% or higher in 2010.
Obama and the media are not being honest with you.

The NY TIMES:
"Hints of Hope Even as Jobless Rate Jumps to 9.4%"

Unemployment went from 8.9% in April to 9.4% in May

This is the same media who declared we were in a recession with unemplyment under 6% with Bush, and proclaimed doom!

Thngs are much much worse than the sugarcoating the government and media are telling you.

you have to remember your NOT allowed to question our leaders anymore, not all the spending and the be nice to the terrorist's policy. Meanwhile we all will be broke, Korean & Iran will be firing Nuke rockets for fun, but hey dont worry Barack, Big Joe, Hillary, Nancy and Harry have it all under control. Just go along with the program and listen to the great speeches! "Yes we can" make it alot worse?
