It must be true… a McClatchy newspaper sez so today. Right there, above the fold in today’s Charlotte Observer:
14.7 million: People unemployed in June, the most ever in records dating to 1948. (GP Ed. Note – obviously there were more during the Great Depression)
12.1 million: People unemployed in December 1982, the record before the current downturn.
August 1983: The last time the unemployment rate hit 9.5%
24.5 weeks: The average length of unemployment, also a record.
What happened to the Obama Stimulus money? What jobs is it creating? Where are these “shovel-ready” projects Obama promised?
Say what you want about President George W. Bush — but after he entered office in a recession, then our economy absorbed the 9/11 attacks — he still had a NET INCREASE in jobs in his term. At this rate, it will be a miracle — sans massive tax cuts — for Obama to say the same thing.
Obama is a failure of epic proportions. We need to take America back before Obama spends us into oblivion for good.
