This Is Really Scary

Go watch this graphic. Then sit down with a beer or something & think about what President Obama said about about creating jobs for unemployed Americans. Quite a disconnect, I think.
“I want to be clear: While I believe the government has a critical role in creating the conditions for economic growth, ultimately true economic recovery is only going to come from the private sector,” he told his audience,....
I would venture to guess that this is the same private sector that got us into the economic meltdown to begin win. The same private sector that continues to give its employees disgustingly huge bonuses. What the hell is wrong with President Obama? He apparently has completely forgotten how President FDR brought the country out of the Great Depression. I suppose there would be a bit more money if President Obama hadn't betrayed the very people who worked so hard to get him elected last year. Just fucking awful.
...President Obama’s decision to send 30,000 additional troops to Afghanistan,....
Thanks to da Mayor for the link to the cool graphic on the particularly uncool rise in unemployment.
