If it is Thursday, it must mean that the Obama weekly jobless claims are up again. Weekly jobless claims rose by 5000 to a seasonally adjusted 417,000. Terrible and unacceptable. As Americans file for unemployment, President Barack Obama golfs.
Initial claims for state unemployment benefits rose 5,000 to a seasonally adjusted 417,000, the Labor Department said, but still nowhere near levels that would signal a recession.
Could there be any worse optics for an incumbent President who is sinking fast in the polls than to have more and more Americans file for first time unemployment benefits and the Barack Obama seen golfing and riding a bikes like he has a care in the word.
How out of touch could one man be? UNREAL, JUST UNBELIEVABLY UNREAL! Who will he blame next, Hurricane Irene? Oh that’s correct, the hurricane has not yet hit the US yet.
