Unexpectedly! LMAO


More Americans applied for jobless benefits and consumer prices dropped by the most in three years, giving the Federal Reserve room to spur an economy that’s generating little growth or inflation.

Claims for unemployment insurance payments unexpectedly climbed by 6,000 to 386,000 in the week ended June 9, Labor Department figures showed today in Washington. The cost of living fell 0.3 percent in May, led by the biggest decrease in gasoline prices in three years, the agency also reported.

Its always unexpectedly.

Almost as unexpected as the numbers being revised upwards next week when no one is looking.

Yeah, because no one pays attention to job numbers. :drool:

They pay attention to the initial claim, but the average person is much less likely to pay attention to the revisions buried on page A24 of the New York Times..

The President unexpectedly failed to create or save any new jobs again for the 187th week in a row.

Of course, that is just blatantly false that there haven't been jobs added.

You're right. I forgot the Obama campaign staff, his entertainment coordinator, his golf caddy, and his wife's army of travel agents.

Well, when far more have been lost than added, I think that would have to called a Pyrrhic victory.

Feel free to look that term up, tool...

Nuh uh. They have added over 400,000 jobs. Sarah Jessica Parker said so. Since she was in like Sex and the City, she must be right.

You're right.

I am right. Jobs have been added since early 2010. If not for the massive hole he started in (sorry, but it is true--W's 600K job losses his last month was a nice way to start), Obama would have a decent record.

See. Even you agree that Obama's record isn't decent, as it stands.

We know where he started....and to the dismay of his followers, we know where he is ending.

You mean the massive hole created by the Democratically controlled congress in Bush's last two years?
