November will tell us a lot about Americans

Jobs numbers are out.  Even though we added only 96,000 jobs, which is less than what we need to simply keep up with the population increase (in other words, it represents a net decrease in jobs), the unemployment rate actually dropped from 8.3% to 8.1%.  Why?  Because 368,000 people dropped out of the workforce, i.e., stopped looking for jobs.  This drops the labor force participation rate to 63.5%; its lowest since 1981.  The percentage of men in the labor force?  69.9%.  The lowest since 1948.

Let’s face it, the economy simply hasn’t improved.  It’s been 43 consecutive months of unemployment over 8%, and in addition to being a crappy unemployment rate, 8% also represents the primary argument for Obama becoming a one term proposition.  We were sold a bill of goods just a few months into the Obama presidency.  We were told that borrowing $800 billion of what is ultimately taxpayer money, and giving it to those constituents favored by the Dems, would result in unemployment never rising above 8%.  Not only has unemployment gone far above 8%, it has yet to drop below it.  8% would destroy any other president, and it should destroy this one.

This is where I get to the part about November telling us a lot about Americans.  Are we really that stupid?  And by “we,” I mean someone other than myself, since I didn’t vote for him last time.  Let’s face it: Hope and Change has given us about as much as one might rationally expect.  That’s right, I said “rationally.”  I’ve always said liberalism is the politics of the weak-minded.  Why?  Because it’s emotionally satisfying to say things like “everyone should have enough to eat,” or “everyone should have affordable health care.”  No one will ever disagree with these statements.  The problem is, actually making them so is impossible; decades of liberal policies have proven it.  The left’s desire to push low-income housing gave us the economic collapse.  The left’s Social Security and Medicare programs are bankrupt.  And now we have Obamacare, which seeks to force insurance companies to provide “government approved” plans to everyone, regardless of their health, for “governent approved” premiums.  These things aren’t possible.  But try telling that to a crowd consisting of college students, government employees, and these people:

We’re totally middle class

Gas prices have more than doubled since Obama became president.  He’s added more to our debt than any president in history.  There are more people using food stamps then ever before.  And now he wants to increase taxes on all the rich bastards, which will do something positive, although no one has ever been able to tell me what.

Barry wants more time.  Does he deserve it?  If any of us failed at his level over a four year period at our jobs, and then told our bosses we simply needed more time, we’d likely get just enough to clean out our offices.  Yes, he inherited a mess…that he specifically sought out.  It’s not like someone put his name in the presidential voting box as a joke, and he just happened to win (although sometimes I wonder…).  Four years ago, Barry put on his big-boy pants, bumped fists with Bill Ayers, and decided to spend millions to become the most powerful person in the world (notice how I didn’t say “most powerful man.”  #toleranceanddiversity).   As much as he’d like to run from it, he owns this economy.

The polls show a dead heat.  At this point in their race, Carter and Reagan were similarly situated, with Reagan eventually running away with it.  When push came to shove, the American people concluded that Carter was incompentent, so hey, let’s elect the other guy.  If Americans don’t come to the same conclusion in November, I will finally have the proof of what I have for so long suspected: everyone is stupid.  Especially Scarlett Johansson.
