June jobs report: Just more bad news in an election season of doom and gloom

By Capitol Hill Blue
July 7, 2012

No President in modern times has run for re-election with unemployment is as high as it is now and if Barack Obama thought Friday’s jobs report would ease that situation he was no doubt disappointed.

June’s job figures showed unemployment holding stedy at 8.2 percent and lackluster numbers for jobs growth remain the highest since the Great Depression.

Democratic strategists tell Capitol Hill Blue that depression is just what they are seeing at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue these days.

“Let’s just say the mood in the West Wing is not good,” says one, who asked not to be identified.  “There is a lot of doom and gloom in the White House.”

Obama tried to put a positive spin on the bad news, saying the net growth of just 80,000 jobs is “a step in the right direction.”  GOP challenger Mitt Romney, of course, called the jobs report a continuation of national misery.

“This kick in the gut has got to end,” Romney said Friday.

True enough, but does Romney — or anyone else for that matter — have a real or workable solution to the problem?

    Will the problem of unemployment be improved if Obama is out of office? What does Romney offer? We must never forget that Romney is a Republican and will follow the agenda (RNC) to a “T.”

    The new numbers on “Pornography” were just issued and Utah is by far the biggest consumer of Porn. Anyone who has read the books on the culture of LDS should realize that our girl children are trained from birth to service sexually the men in their lives and family.

    Women in the LDS are brood mares and little girls are trained to follow this trend to breed until the body stops. I wanted my two girls to have nothing to do with this attitude. My own family revolted when I refused to be baptized myself and many have not made any contact with me since.

    I’m beginning to understand that Americans are not basing their lives as individuals but simply members of some religious source based in other parts of the world. Three hundred years of a freedom from England has ended up with a culture of becoming part of a group who will tell us all what not to do.

    It was asked:

    “…but does Romney — or anyone else for that matter — have a real or workable solution to the problem?”

    Yes, there is an answer. It’s in a book I keep mentioning; “Saving America: Using Democratic Capitalism to Rescue the Nation from Economic Folly” (Algoa Publishing of New York City)

    Yep, Democratic Capitalism… nice book jacket palaver.

    But in reality, it’s just another redistributionist scheme to shuck the productives to elevate the progressives.

      Think it’s Proverbs 18:13 that says a person who answers a matter before hearing it is a gawd-awful fool. Yet you try to pass judgement on something you haven’t read; a perfect description of foolishness.

      As to therealraven: I’m trying to save America from what the ill-informed keep voting for.

    Yeah, sure you are. Is it on Kindle yet? Nothing like tossing in your free plugs which you have a habit Funny how you never seem to mention you wrote it until someone else does. That tactic should explain all I need to know about you “magnificent” work.
