    Jobless claims rose again - the 4th rise in the last 5 weeks.

    Unemployment figures are now estimated to show a 10.1% national jobless rate in the coming week.

    This is now the Obama Economy folks - and it ain't pretty...

    _____

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The number of newly laid-off workers filing initial claims for jobless benefits rose unexpectedly last week, evidence that layoffs are continuing and jobs remain scarce.

    The rise is the fourth in the past five weeks. Most economists hoped that claims would resume a downward trend that was evident in the fall and early winter.


    ...More than 5.8 million people were receiving extended benefits in the week ended Jan. 16, the latest data available, up from about 5.6 million the previous week. The extended benefit data isn't seasonally adjusted and is volatile from week to week.

    Still, the increasing number of people claiming extended unemployment insurance indicates hiring hasn't picked up. That leaves people out of work for longer and longer periods of time.

    Obama is going into his second year, and the Democrat dominated Congress is going into its 4th year of control and some in here still persist in calling this Bush or the Republicans' economy?

    Obama and the Democrats spent $800 BILLION in a so-called "stimulus" bill that has been a complete failure.

    No accountability for that, eh?

    How...predictable! :eusa_whistle:

    how about admitting the mess has been made by both sides?

    Of course, over a year after he has taken office, the constant whining and blaming 'the previous administration' is making obama look very weak.

    If this is the precedent, then expect the next president to blame obamalama for at least a year and a half for all his problems.


    He couldn't contain his desire to balme booosh even during his prayer breakfast speech this morning.

    What a whiney bucket.............he would be better off to grow a pair of balls and accept the fact he has been president for over a year, and the economy is his.
    Notice, I didn't say he needs to grow up and accept responsibility, and stop acting like a spoiled little boy. I figured you would accuse me of racisim........
