Is what Drudge is calling it. Obama was slammed by incredibly poor unemployment, new jobs, and stock market news. The best takeaway?
Friday's jobs numbers caught the White House and the Obama campaign by surprise. Polls show the economy consistently remains voters' top concern before the November election.
How could this take anyone by surprise? It is more of the same we've seen for the entirety of his presidency. Only a coccooned narcissist or a goddam fool (or both) could have failed to see this coming.
The good news? This is possibly the worst day of Obama's presidency. The better news? This will seem like a magical trip to Hogwarts to Obama when next month's numbers come out. Also of import: Mitt Romney seems to enjoy punching Barack Obama in his pussified face.
As a Marginally Employed American, I surely don't like bad economic news. But it's better to drink the castor oil now, and evacuate this morass into the Chinese porcelain in the short term than exist through four more years of crony capitalism, vote-buying, lunatic economic policies, racial and class grievances, and socialist bullying.
Hell, if Romney wins and the economy ticks up I might even be able to fulfill my new dream of starting a mail-order bride business from Wal-Mart parking lots.
