The jobs report is in and it’s not good. The unemployment rate went from 9.5% to 9.6%. So what the hell is Obama talking about?
In a jaw dropping statement quoted by Jake Tapper over at ABC, Obama said:
“This morning, new figures show the economy produced 67,000 private sector jobs in August, the eighth consecutive month of private job growth. Additionally, the numbers for July were revised upward to 107,000. Now that’s positive news, and it reflects the steps we’ve already taken to break the back of this recession.”
Hey Jackass – the unemployment rate WENT UP!
Sorry to use profanity, but come on.
Hey, “The unemployment rate went up, what do you think?”
“Great news, we’re seeing positive job growth.”
This might be the biggest WTF of the day since he told us he was going to personally supervise raising the sea levels.
