Unemployment Falls to 8.5%, Newt Gingrich Keeps on Spinning It!

Newt GingrichTo some, anything President Barack Obama is set out to do is bad for America. Newt Gingrich thinks PBO’s economic policies are a failure despite the latest jobs numbers reported by US Department of Labor which noted that 200,000 nonfarm payroll jobs was added in December 2011. Of course this brings the unemployment rate to 8.5%, lowest level in nearly three years, from 8.6% at the end of November 2011.

An employment of 8.5% is the lowest since President Obama took office in January of 2008 but Newt Gingrich and his ilks dread as usual any positive accomplishments of the  President’s economical policy by making statements like:

“The Obama experiment has failed, and it is time to look to proven solutions that have successfully empowered job-creators in the past.”

It sounds like he wants 8 years of another Bushist administration in the White House. May be someone should remind him and those teabagging Republicans the truth about that proven solution (War and Tax Cuts for the rich) that accounts for over half of public debt.

Bush's contribution to public debt

I just don’t know why Newt Gingrich continues to act like an ass all the time considering the fact that 3 million private sector jobs have been created in 2010 and 2011. May I suggest he takes a good looks at the following chart about how President Obama’s economic policies have reverse one of the worse recessions in American History?

December 2011 Job Report

I guess 22 consecutive months of positive private sector job numbers is not an easy pill to swallow considering the fact Newt and the Republican Party  are more interested in tearing down the US Economy and the American people before the 2012 Presidential Election so that they can score political talking point to demonize  and mischaracterize President Obama’s policies to use it to in the effort to win the White house.

Well, what most Americans can’t seem to comprehend is easily depicted in this cartoon.


Care to share and expose the hypocrisy of Newt and company?

Please do.

    I imagine the GOP has been thrown off their game. It can no longer beat the Democratic Party over the head with “soft on defense/national security issues,” can’t use the same old same old ruse about raising taxes on “job creators,” gay rights has been taken off the bargaining table with DADT repeal–although there’s more work to be done on DOMA, and although they had pinned their hopes and efforts on the economy not improving for the Presidential primary they’ve been outmaneuvered by President Obama who is doing everything in his power to create jobs.

    What’s a party based on obstructing progress to do…but ramp up the rhetoric because they’re days are numbered as the American public FINALLY begins to wake up!~
