Bush, McCain, and their GOP should be proud of themselves… Shouldn’t they?
The nation’s unemployment rate zoomed to a five-year high of 6.1 percent in August as employers slashed 84,000 jobs, dramatic proof of the mounting damage a deeply troubled economy is inflicting on workers and businesses alike.
The Labor Department’s report, released Friday, showed the increasing toll the housing, credit and financial crises are taking on the economy.
6.1% unemployment? 84,000 jobs lost? Looming recession? And “the fundamentals of our economy are strong”, as Bush & McCain say? Gimme a break!
Count me out… We desperately need change.
