It’s Unexpected!

Would you believe it? Jobless claims are rising.

The number of Americans filing new claims for unemployment benefits last week stayed in a range consistent with job growth and incomes rose in December by the most in eight years, mildly positive signs for a still-fragile economy.
The data suggests points to some underlying momentum in the economy despite a surprise contraction in gross domestic product during the fourth quarter, which largely came from temporary factors.
Last week, initial claims for state unemployment benefits increased 38,000 to 368,000, the Labor Department said on Thursday.
The increase follows a week where new claims were at their lowest in five years and still points to an economy where employers are adding jobs, albeit at a lackluster pace.

Ok, read that again. Now I’m going to write is as if George W. Bush was the President:

The number of Americans filing new claims for unemployment benefits last week continued to suck during this worst-of-all-possible administrations.
The data suggests points to some underlying momentum in the economy despite a surprise contraction in gross domestic product during the fourth quarter, which largely came from temporary factors. That data is clearly being manipulated by the criminals in the administration.

Last week, initial claims for state unemployment benefits increased 38,000! to 368,000, the Labor Department said on Thursday.
The increase follows a week where new claims were at their lowest in five years – again, because the administration is monkeying with the numbers – and still points to an “economy” where employers are adding jobs (if you believe that, you’ll believe anything), albeit at a lackluster pace.

But Bush isn’t President; the Messiah is. So it’s all good. :) :) :)
