Bush "concerned" about jobless rate rise, according to While House apologist Ari Fleischer (didn't he quit? When is he leaving?).
In case you didn't realize it, the 30,000 jobs lost in June were a good thing. Apparantly, they're part of the recovery! Says Fleischer, "We are also an economy that is having a slow recovery from that short and shallow recession and that's further evidenced in today's unemployment report." Yes, 30,000 jobs lost, but we're in a "slow recovery" - the recession is over.
Meanwhile, the real good news is that, as Abe Lincoln said (sort of), you can fool most of the people during the time they're watching corporate TV news, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time. Yes, the latest poll shows that the majority in US believes Bush 'stretched truth' about Iraq. Okay, I would have said outright lied, but I'll take "stretched truth" as an improvement over blind acceptance.
