Hey AP! Wrong Headline AGAIN!

The AP’s headline of UNEMPLOYMENT RATE FALLS IN 39 STATES IN JUNE belies the truth about the story, and one sentence in, the reader gets a completely different narrative.  Someone reading only the headline will view the economy as improving just as the writer, Christopher  S. Rugaber, hopes.  Again the AP’s left-wing, Obama supporting staff attempts to make lemonade out of lemons to uplift their Messiah, Obama.  Maybe Mr. Rugaber is a member of the Journolist, because otherwise, the headline would be “In Frustration, More Americans Give Up Looking For Work”.

The first sentence of the article is “The unemployment rate fell in most states in June, mainly because more people gave up searching for work and were no longer counted.”  Simply put, the economy sucks, Obama’s policies have failed, things aren’t better, but we can use fuzzy calculations to say that they are!

In the manner of the Massachusetts laws for replacing Senators, maybe the Department of Labor can further refine its  calculations of the Unemployment Rate in a way that when Democrats are in power, the US is at 100% employment.  When Republicans are in power, the US Unemployment Rate is 20%.

The AP’s headline is just that ridiculous!

Obama Praises Fiscal Irresponsibility

In November 2009, as Obama then signed an extension to Unemployment Benefits, he said, “I would also like to announce I just signed into law a bill that will help grow our economy, save and create new jobs and provide relief to struggling families and businesses,”

Obama said then. “Now, it’s important to note that the bill I signed will not add to our deficit. It is fully paid for, and so it is fiscally responsible.”

Now, in July 2010, Obama chides Republicans as cynical for wanting to see that this bill ‘will not add to our deficit’ and ‘is fully paid for’ and is ‘fiscally responsible’

This refusal to pass an unpaid insurance bill “reflects a lack of faith in the American people,” according to Obama.

In November 2009, being fiscally responsible is worthy of braggadocio.  In July 2010, the same principle is condemned and panned.  Conversely, his actions, now fiscally irresponsible, are worthy of his two-faced praise.

During speech on unemployment benefits, Obama questions Republicans’ faith in the American people
