Unemployment Steady, Conservatives Weep
Remember when the September jobs report came out, 114,000 jobs added, unemployment at 7.8%, the lowest in Obama's presidency, and conservatives had themselves a temper tantrum, claiming "these Chicago guys" (Obama & surrogates) had pressured the Bureau of Labor Statistics to put out bunk numbers?
October numbers out today, conservatives were certain those numbers would expose the lie. Unemployment is at 7.9%, 171,000 jobs added. This is nothing to cheer about to be sure but I'm listening to Don Imus and he sounds so deflated.
Haven't heard a single one even mention the September accusations much less hear the party of personal responsibility acknowledge the accusation was bullshit.
