Well no sh!t Sherlock? You called it back in the first week of February. But we’ll get to that a bit later. First Gateway Pundit has this.
The US lost over 2.5 million jobs in the first four months of this year under the Obama Administration.
The US unemployment rate rose from 7.6% to 9.4% under Obama… the highest rate in 25 years.

The US has lost 16,000 jobs each day since Democrats passed their non-Stimulus bill, the largest redistribution of wealth from the private sector to government officials in US history, without any House Republican votes.
Biden tells “Meet the Press” that “everyone guessed wrong” on the impact of the stimulus, economy was worse off than anyone thought.
Now to the Biden prediction. Biden was already in the CYA mode and was saying they would be wrong 30 % of the time. How prophetic. On February 6, 2009 I posted this.
Watch the video to see Vice President Joe “The Gaffe” Biden say that even if they get everything they want, they will still be wrong about a third of the time. And notice how David Axelrod sidesteps the question from Wolf Blitzer and gives the democratic talking points for the day. I first saw Obama’s press secretary Robert Gibbs use the exact same words this morning to dodge a question from the press. Axelrod even takes it one step further by taking the quote out of context. Here’s the video and the quote.
The president and I were talking about something yesterday in the Oval Office — which, to the press here, I’ll not suggest what it was — but the response was to the folks that were in the office with us — was, you know, if we do everything right, if we do it with absolute certainty, we stand up there and we make really tough decisions, there’s still a 30-percent chance we’re going to get it wrong. You, too. You, too. Because I can’t think of a time, as a student of history — and I’ve participated in this business as long as almost anybody but my chairman from Michigan. I think I’ve been here — not a lot of you have served more than 36 years. TWS
Nowhere in that video does he say he’s talking about the stimulus bill. In fact it’s just the opposite, he says he won’t disclose what they were talking about. Again, watch Axelrod evade the question with the democrat talking points.
Hope & Change? Well there’s certainly no Hope if the new administration is going to be wrong a third of the time. And as for Change, just listen to Axelrod pull the same old democratic bullsh!t of changing the subject.
Do you still think this bunch of Chicago con-artist thugs are not taking us for the biggest ride in the history of the United States? They have a plan, and we’d better have one too.
