You’ll probably want the bad news first: The unemployment rate rose to 8.3 percent in July, a number in which the New York Times desperately seeks to find good news for Obama, which would actually be bad news for everybody else, because if the New York Times deceives people into thinking Obama’s policies aren’t a complete failure, his policies — which are, in fact, a complete failure — might continue another four years.
The good new is this: The College Republican National Committee is undeceived about the grim reality of Obamanomics:
Joblessness Among Young People Remains High
Washington, DC – August 3, 2012 – New jobs numbers released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics show that young people continue to be dealt a tough blow under this economy.
Youth unemployment sits at 15.3 percent while unemployment nationally rose to 8.3 percent. Breaking that down even further, for 18 and 19 year olds, unemployment is up to 22.2 percent.
“My generation continues to suffer under the Obama economy. We are facing record high unemployment and even higher underemployment and see no sign of that changing anytime soon if we keep President Obama in the White House,” CRNC Chairman Alex Schriver said.
A Harvard Institute of Politics poll from earlier this year revealed that 74 percent of young Americans consider jobs and the economy to be the number one voting issue for them going into this election.
“President Obama has had four years to turn this economy around and get Americans back to work but instead we consistently see abysmal jobs reports month after month. It’s time for real change in the White House” Schriver added.
UPDATE: Speaking of college:
- The obnoxious a-hole’s “profile was scrubbed from [the University of Arizona's] faculty listings Thursday,” the Arizona Daily Star reports. The obnoxious a–hole had previously taught MBA students at the university, from which he graduated in 1999. So he’s probably about 35 years old and just destroyed his career and reputation because of his own hateful, arrogant, moralistic self-righteousness. If Obama gets re-elected, this jerk will probably get a job — at the White House.
