That was part of his rhetoric, yet, unemployment has risen sharply, AGAIN it stands at over 8%. And, thanks to the walking brain donors who vote with their hands out, we have four more years of this!
U.S. unemployment, as measured by Gallup without seasonal adjustment, was 7.8% for the month of November, up significantly from 7.0% for October. Gallup’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate is 8.3%, nearly a one-point increase over October’s rate.
The economy is shedding jobs at roughly the same rate as we’ve seen for [the past 18 months], and it’s not generating jobs quickly enough to give those workers enough options other than unemployment.
Given the continuing misery, why did Americans re-elect Obama?
Why? So many reasons, most revolving around the lack of an understanding of what American principles are about. Start with an education system that spends far more than it should to NOT teach about the Constitution! Add a news media that shills for Obama, and the rest of the Democrats. Add a growing sense of entitlement from so many Americans. Add a detachment from politics and things political by most of us. And of those who do try to be informed, many just skim headlines, so they end up misinformed rather than informed. Add the Americans who want to be “understood” and “related to”. Good grief we are so sensitive now. Finally, add the fact that style and not substance matters to most voters.
