Reid: It is “Really Good” that 36,000 Americans Lost Jobs in February

Friday, March 5th, 2010

Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid Said "Today is a big day in America. Only 36,000 people lost their jobs today, which is really good."

Just when you thought Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid could not make a more inappropriate statement (see “Negro dialect”, see also “the war is lost”), Leader Reid unleashed this doozy on the Senate floor today:

“Today is a big day in America. Only 36,000 people lost their jobs today, which is really good.”

Perhaps Harry Reid should say that, in person, to each and every one of the 36,000 families who lost a breadwinner in the past month. This breathtakingly insensitive statement to such families by Harry Reid today is sure to disrupt the Obama Administration’s efforts to portray their economic policies as having saved the economy. The full video of Reid’s statement is here, expect the media to pick up on this shortly.

Are the Democrats Out of Touch With the American People?

Thursday, February 18th, 2010

The DNC releases a video praising the Obama Administration for creating jobs and fostering recovery as jobless claims rise again “unexpectantly” this week

As first time jobless claims rose last week by 31,000 to 473,000, the DNC had the audacity to release a video ad this morning claiming that the Porkulus bill has revived the economy and his creating jobs entitled the Road to Recovery.

Clearly, there is disconnect from reality in the White House that flows all the way down to the MSM, where the Associated Press once again stated that claims rose “unexpectedly“.  Unexpectedly?!?  May we suggest that the AP and Obama administration hire some economists who are in touch with the American people.


Update June 2016:


Still as true today as when I wrote this draft in 2010
