How’s That “Created Or Saved” Stuff Going?

We’ll find out later today

NEW YORK (Reuters) – U.S. stock index futures slipped on Friday as cautious investors awaited a key monthly employment report after other data this week suggested the nascent economic recovery may be losing momentum.

You know, that unemployment rate that the Greatest Smartest Mind Evah warned us *might* hit !gasp! 8% or some such if we didn’t pass the Stimulus Plan That Jesus Would Have Supported With Out Reading?

You know, the one that now is pushing 10%?

* The U.S. Labor Department is to release its September employment report at 8:30 a.m. EDT . Economists forecast that 180,000 jobs were lost in September compared with a loss of 216,000 jobs in August, according to a Reuters survey. The unemployment rate is seen at 9.8 percent versus 9.7 percent in the prior month.

Get ready for the spin about how wonderful it is and great the Plan is in spite of all the New Bad Things they’ve found that they Weren’t Aware the Previous Administration had done…

*Update: looks like there were something like 263,000 jobs lost last month vs expectations of around 180,000. Not good.

    Does it say how many jobs the Messiah saved? Or are we supposed to take that for granted by now?
