“the economy is getting stronger by the day.”
So said Obama today applauding the 431,000 new jobs reported by labor. It really makes me question his intelligence. Of those 431,000 jobs, only 41,000 were private sector. The rest were mostly made up of temporary census jobs. And there are certainly some number games being played there. (hiring, letting go, then re-hiring) But what a perfect picture of what is going on and what Obama’s liberal fiscal policies are doing. The worst part of it though is that Obama is promoting this as a good thing. Even Harvard Business School had to come to the conclusion that more government spending means fewer jobs.
I can hope against hope, but it appears we will be stuck with backwards 1930′s liberal logic until we vote them out of office. Only that kind of logic can lead to the conclusion that adding 411,000 temporary census worker jobs is a good thing for the economy.
