Obama 2004 radio address.

Funny how that has worked.  Back in 2004 Obungler attacks Bush on the creation of 310,000 jobs and a 5.6 unemployment rate.  Now we have 8.2 unemployment and the economy created 88,000 new jobs rate as the rosiest forecast of the job market.  More people entered the job market but there are less jobs out there.  Unemployment is actually higher but the U.S. Dept of labor no longer count people that have exhausted their 99 weeks of unemployment and those that have flat given up.   The Irony is interesting.  I had seen this article on weasel zippers and have expounded upon it.  I guarantee that the lamestream media will give him a pass on it.

After the economy added 310,000 jobs in May 2004 and the unemployment rate was 5.6%, then-candidate Barack Obama used the Democrat weekly radio address to attack the Bush administration for citing good economic numbers.
“For the past few weeks, President Bush and members of his administration have traveled the nation to celebrate recent improved economic statistics. Well, I’ve been traveling too, all over this large and diverse state. In cities and suburbs, downstate and upstate, I’ve heard from people who say it’s way too early to claim victory when it comes to our economy,” Obama says in the Democrats’ radio address from June 26, 2004.
“After three dismal years of job-loss, we all welcome encouraging statistics,” Obama acknowledges in the 2004 address. “But for most Americans, the health of our economy is measured in a different and more personal way: If I lose my job, where will I find one that pays as well and offers real benefits? Can I afford health-care coverage on my own, or the cost of sending my children to college? Will I ever be able to save and retire with dignity and security? These are the questions I hear hardworking people asking. For them, the basic rewards of a middle-class life, rewards that we once took for granted, have become an elusive dream.”
