To me a prez should be serious, not some joking clown.
So you would prefer another “DICK IN THE BUSH?”
Listen closely…“gulp…gulp…gulp.” That’s you swallowing the media bias regarding President Bush.
And as long as we’re on the topic what was the unemployment rate when Bush left office. Do you know? Have you heard that from your media guru’s? No? Do you know why? Because when Bush left office the unemployment rate was 5.8%, not great but far, far better than mister socialism’s 8.2%. Did you know that Obama has reigned over the longest sustained unemployment over 8% in the history of the country?
Yeah, I’d take Palin in a heart beat over Obama…Not even close!
And, I’m no fan of Palin.
Run along now you don’t want to miss Chris Matthews telling you how great Obama is.
I’d just like to clarify the employment rate was about 8 percent when Bush left office not 5.8%. You can confirm with the Bureau of Labor statistics if you want. It was on an upward trend the last year of Bush’s presidency. Mainly the last 3-6 months. 5.8% is probably just the average unemployment was during his presidency. A lot of the media likes using the average statistic to try and point out how bad it’s gotten. I’ve even seen it on “biased liberal mainstream news”.[/quote]
As for your comment about the media they all tip left with the exception of FOX which leans right. If Obama had actually brought down the unemployment rate instead of allowing it to higher than it was when Bush was President we would be hearing about it every day. Chris Matthews would be getting a chill up his leg and clamoring for one more lick at Obama’s bung hole. Followed by the other media lap dogs far too numerous to mention for the sake of this post.[/quote]
I’m right though. I saw it on MSNBC or CNN. They mentioned the unemployment rate being 5% when Bush was in office and talked about how bad it had gotten. I think the media in general will go for shock and awe over political leaning every time.
Also, I never said the unemployment rate went below when Bush left office. I just said it was about 8% when he left.
Here’s a link.
It was 7.8% in January of 2009 and you can see it trending upward through 2008. 5.8% is inaccurate even if you wanted to use Dec 2008’s number. Who even told you it was 5.8%?[/quote]
You did in a previous post.
