Musings on Sports, Politics and Life in general

Well, that sucked…


So, here I was winding down my little vacation and getting ready to enjoy the weekend when I opened up my email and immediately got pummeled with the headlines about the June Jobs Report. Of all the ones I saw, though, this one about sums up the employment situation best:

Who’s in Charge of Fixing This?” via the NY Times.
Folks, when a newspaper that leans as far left as the Times is questioning your leadership (and you’re the most lefty D to hold the Presidency since Carter), it might be time to get off the tour bus and figure out why all that government spending hasn’t exactly lit up the economy. Of course, I fully expect to find out on the evening news that Obama will blame:
  • Bush
  • Wall Street
  • Congress
  • Europe
  • Some combo of all the above

He’ll express some sentiment about how terrible all of this unemployment is and how, of course, he’s blameless. But hey, if I could tour closed and shuttered places of business from a tank-proof, taxpayer funded tour bus, shout out “This sucks!” to a few hundred folks and revel in the glory of being the Rock Star President – who’s to say I wouldn’t do the same?

Ok, well – back to my vaca. See you on Monday. After looking over these numbers, it looks like there’s a lot of you who’ll be able to join me for coffee without worrying you’ll be late for work. And yeah, that sucks
