George can’t get no…bum bum bum…sat-is-faction…bum bum bum
How many times have we heard this?:
“I will not be satisfied until every American who wants a job can find one.”
Well, here comes this years job projections:
The economy should shed its jobless label this year with the creation of about 2.6 million new positions, the White House forecast Monday.
In the annual Economic Report of the President, the White House said the number of workers on U.S. non-farm payrolls was likely to rise to an average to 132.7 million this year from a 2003 average it thought would come in at 130.1 million.
Sounds like good news, eh? But before you go out and buy that 42″ plasma screen in anticipation of that first heavy-duty paycheck:
Last year, the Bush administration was looking for the creation of about 1.7 million jobs. But the economy actually lost 53,000 jobs, bringing the total number of jobs lost since Bush took office to 2.2 million.
Whoa! From plus 1.7 million to minus 53,000. That’s a swing of about….hmmmm…carry the four…..plus seven….well, let’s just say that if you predicted that the Detroit Lions and the Oakland Raiders were going to be in the Super Bowl two weeks ago, you would have been much closer to your prediction than the Bush Administration was on job growth.
Just another year of no satisfaction in the Bush household.
Only this time, it’s not Laura….
