These numbers are way too low. The government fakes the analytical process to keep them low. According to some Federal Reserve officials, the real unemployment rate is 16%! (Source)
About 73% of [the National Association for Business Economics] surveyed said employment at their company is neither higher nor lower as a result of the $787 billion Recovery ActWhat does Barry Hussein Soetoro do better than blaming George W. Bush or wink, wink blaming the previous administration? That’s right the president takes undeserved credit better than any other president in the history of the United States of America. Can anyone say Nobel Peace Prize.
According to Associated Press writer Julie Pace the president will soon be traveling to Iowa, Illinois and Missouri, in an attempt to take credit for an economy that he says is improving. (see article)
Although there are some who say that the economy is showing some signs of improving there are others that say that nothing that the president has done had anything to do with an slightly improved economy. (see article)
But that won’t stop the president from saying that he brought the country from the brink when he knows that the only things that will restore the nation’s economy are jobs-jobs that have not been produced nor will they be.
The $787 billion dollar stimulus was supposed to keep unemployment under 8%. Unemployment reached over 10% and is presently at 9.7% and now economist say that the stimulus did next to nothing to help the economy.
It is absolutely critical for the Soetoro administration that voter’s perception of the Soetoro administration’s role in fixing the economy is favorable to the president. This is necessary so that Liberals can maintain and increase their political power even if perception is not reality.
The reality is the stimulus package was never meant to create or save jobs. The $787 billion dollars was meant to fund the 2010 and 2012 elections and keep Liberal Democrats in power. I suppose that we will see how effective Democrats will be in propagandizing the apparent economic up turn starting in November.
