Democrats’ "Recovery" Fall: Stumbling Drunk

The US loses 95,000 jobs in September. HERE. Needed to ADD 77,000-150,000 to sustain a recovery. The Democrats have spent so much and created such economic uncertainty few want to hire.
The unemployment rate is at 9.6% UNLESS you go with Gallup’s numbers and see it as 10.1% with an UNDEREMPLOYMENT  rate at 18.8%.
From the wayback machine via Rove in the WSJ yesterday:

In March 2004, when Barack Obama was a candidate for the U.S. Senate in the Illinois Democratic primary, he excoriated President George W. Bush for creating a “jobless recovery.” The month he said that, 334,000 new jobs were created—none of them temporary Census ones—and unemployment was 5.8%. Many other Democrats piled on Mr. Bush at the time. “Mr. President, where are the jobs?” Rep. Nancy Pelosi asked on CNN in October 2003. “The American people will not settle for—nor should the Republicans celebrate—a jobless recovery.” That month saw 203,000 new jobs and 6% unemployment. Her party would kill for such a rate today.

 

From the WSJ:

The unemployment rate, which is calculated with a separate household survey, remained unchanged at a lofty 9.6% in September. About 14.8 million people who would like to work can’t get a job. The jobless rate has been above 9.0% since May 2008, the longest stretch in a quarter-century.

When also taking into account revisions to July, the economy shed a total 218,000 in the third quarter. 

Here’s the brass lining: Hiring is off, but hey, they’re not laying off as many workers! Here.
 How did we get here?

Fire Pelosi

Waiting on the bus to arrive, the growing crowd stood along NE Airport Way waving Fire Pelosi signs. We received many more waves, thumbs up and honks than we did single finger salutes.

Michael Steele gave a very inspiring but short speech as did Delia Lopez. Jim Huffman made an appearance too.

The Tee Shirt says, “My daughter wears combat boots. She’s a U.S. marine.”

Did I mention Michael Steele is quite tall?
