Now, I don’t get to say this often since I am the one who has to hear so often in a mostly non-sarcastic tone from strangers on the street, unsolicited emails, and those voices whom I like to think of as my better angels. But thank you, CNN. Thank you for doing the type of Fair and Balanced fact checking job that I have come to expect only from the
unpaid interns fact-checkers at FaB Fox News.
Yes, while CNN does say that Obama did create 4.5 million jobs, I can forgive them this since they explain why that number doesn’t really matter in such a clear and concise way that even the
trust fund baby nepotees brain trust over at the Heritage Foundation hasn’t even come close to.
For CNN has stepped out of the shadows of its cumbersome neutrality to a fault to point out that of the 4.5 million jobs created, almost 70% of those jobs are jobs that people don’t want, especially the people who lost their jobs in the banking and finance sectors who were counting on the government to make their old jobs new and better. In fact, it seems like the jobs created are more for Obama’s base who don’t pay federal taxes due to government giveaways than for the people who actually made enough money that they had to hire tax attorneys to not pay taxes thanks to America’s tax code which needs to be reformed so those people who don’t work hard enough to pay taxes are paying for their fair share plus to help cover the share that people who work hard don’t pay thanks to their tax attorneys’ hard work.
Not only that, CNN points out that the jobs not yet lost in January 2009 in those banking and finance sectors as well as jobs dependent on the collapsing house market count toward Obama’s record since his election should have stemmed that free fall of firings and layoffs because I can say without any doubt,
Palin McCain wouldn’t have had to worry about being saddled with any job losses during the first six months of 2009 by America.
CNN, I know. I know. And you’re welcome.
