New Jobless Rates Soar as Obama Crashes and Burns

As the AP spins:

The number of newly-laid off workers seeking jobless benefits unexpectedly rose last week, as the economy recovers at a slow and uneven pace.

A rise of 36,000 to 482,000 seasonally adjusted (which is another way of saying it is really much worse than that).

But unexpected?

On January 9, 2010 we published a post here on Virginia Right! saying:

In a stunning upset to their plans, December unemployment numbers were abysmal. Worse than expected. Worse than the previous month. Yet, somehow this is good news. Nancy Pelosi casts a teary eye to the losses under Bush, proclaiming these 84,000 jobs lost are less than that! (And we are all aware that that number will continue to decline as it is adjusted in the next 3 weeks. We could see a loss of 100,000 when Obama finishes playing with the numbers. )

Just wondering what she will say next month when the rash of business closings hit. Many merchants were hoping against hope that the Christmas buying spree would put some much needed cash in their tills. A quick spin around several shopping centers shows that the only good news is for the sign makers. You know. The ones that make the “Going Out Of Business” banners.

Christmas is over and businesses are shutting down in droves. Many tried to hold on through the holidays, but as I predicted, jobs are going away and Washington has done nothing but claimed “jobs saved” as if that were true.

This country is in serious trouble and the Democrats running things are focused on health care and carbon taxes. Now the focus turns to spinning the stunning loss of the “Kennedy” seat and figuring out how they can still ram health care down our throats.

Friends, we are in serious trouble here. This president is not equipped to lead a Scout troop, much less a country. We are one terrorist attack away from total collapse.

Obama has not “pulled us back from the brink”. He has enlarged the abyss.

Hope has become hopelessness for most.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
