Wow, real bad payroll numbers. Consensus was around 150,000 jobs added in May, the number was only 54,000.

Obamanomics are a complete and total failure.

And we’ve got trillions in extra debt.

    Normally I’d say, “WOW! Can’t WAIT to hear the asshole try to spin THEM puppies in the big speech at Chrysler (another taxpayer blowjob) today”, BUT.

    I…just can’t stand the sound of his voice. Any. More. It burns. It grates.

    It gives me acid reflux and nervous ticks.

    I hateses it.

    So you guys tell me what he said ~ “Rah, rah, rah, WEATHERIZATION!” ~ and I’ll write a post.

    Thanks for taking one for the team.

    Oh, and they also revised the previous month’s numbers down.

  3. JeffS says:

    Crap. And those idiots in the White House will spin this, pretty much as Sis says.

  4. Gary from Jersey says:

    Just wait til they put the happy face on inflation that won’t be 10 percent because they forgot to add food and fuel costs.

  5. Yojimbo says:

    Very bad indeed. And 39,000 jobs revision over the previous two months. And this doesn’t take into consideration the latest weakness.

    Considering his hard left friends including, Bill Ayers, I would say the “weatherization” has been going on for quite some time.

  6. Skyler says:

    Who would have guessed that Obamanomics would do this?

    Oh yeah. All the sane people did.

  7. Mr. Bingley says:

    and look who he nominated to be Commerce Secretary. Everything is political; there isn’t the slightest consideration given to people who might actually, you know, be competent to grow the economy.

  8. Mr. Bingley says:

    Skyler, I think you mean “racists.”

  9. JeffS says:

    Sane people, racists, h8rs, whatever, Bing. So long as we’re talking about the 48% of Americans who didn’t vote for President Present in all his glory.

    It aint gonna get better either till business knows just how much and how far they are going to have to take in the shorts tax wise.

  11. Yojimbo says:

    I think this payroll number also includes all those burger flipping jobs. Think what the number would be if they hadn’t gone on a hiring spree.

  12. Mr. Bingley says:

    I thought that was in the April number?

  13. Yojimbo says:

    It could have been. This number encompasses both April and May. I thought that hiring was in late April, but maybe not. Anyhow, they revised that number down as well. I go by the old umpire motto, “I may not always be right but I’m never wrong.” That always covers me.

    And congratulations to your Cavaliers. National champeens in lacrosse and the #1 seed in the baseball playoffs.

  14. Yojimbo says:

    Matt Dillon is gone. RIP Mr. Arness. You will be missed.
    Thank you for all the happy memories.

    Obamanomics? Au contraire, says Forbes’ Peter Cohan. According to his math, our current economy is 94% Bush’s fault. (SCIENCE!)

    He links a WashPo article that goes into the perfidy in detail… but he omits something that even the WashPo talks about: to wit, that despite all the ruinous things they accuse W of doing, the defecits through 2007 were declining, thanks to “surging tax revenues” (the WashPo’s words, not mine). Mind you, this is WITH the tax cuts AND a two-front war.

    It was only the housing/finance collapse and the subsequent bailout that really brought the problems to a point. Now, if this was all his fault, why did the sooper geeenyuses of the Obama administration – who ran on a platform of “all things NOT Bush” – decide to double down on the bailout? And why haven’t they reversed the policies that caused the housing bubble in the first place? And why aren’t they taking step one about reforming Soc Sec and Medicare – both things that were pushed (however mildly) during Bush’s second term and promptly laughed out of court?

    Good ones, Diptera.

    Buy high, sell low, fudge the numbers.

  18. JeffS says:

    Buy high, sell low, fudge the numbers.

    And buy ammo.

    Now Mr. Greenspan says the debt ceiling and taxes should be raised.

    I like the whole “fudge’ thing. Sell more fudge ~ that’ll do it!
