    Jobless claims rise or MSM covers for Obama by using unexpectedly

    Did you ever notice with all the bad economic news Papa Obama's policies have created, the MSM likes to cover for him by using the term "unexpectedly". Really, only the MSM and the left like to think it was unexpected, everyone else knows the truth that is is not.




    First-time jobless claims rise unexpectedly
    New jobless claims rise unexpectedly to 480,000 as layoffs continue, jobs remain scarce


    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.

    The Labor Department said Thursday that new claims for unemployment insurance rose by 8,000 to a seasonally adjusted 480,000. Wall Street economists had expected a drop to 460,000, according to Thomson Reuters.

    The Liberal dominated MSM has covered for him since day one. This is just another example. If this guy had an (R) by his name,i'm pretty sure the MSM would be covering this President's numerous failings in a completely different fashion. It is sad but it is what it is.

    Meh....You can't hardly ever hear numbers like this from the so-called "experts" without them being "unexpected" or "surprising".

    Makes me wonder how they ever became "experts".

    It is SOP for the MSM and the left


    SEE:

    MSM soft treatment of Obama-show of support or soft bigotry of low expectations?

    When one looks at the favorite treatment that Papa Obama gets in the MSM, it seems that the MSM is just supporting him because they, as well, are mostly liberal.

    But in retrospect, when ones considers the approach that most white liberals take when it comes to minorities in the US, affirmative action; lowered expectations etc.

    The question becomes, is the liberal press just showing "true" support for Papa Obama's failed policies or are they showing the liberal's soft bigotry of low expectations that they have for minorities in general? Of course, by keeping the bar low, it will be easier for Papa Obama to "pass the test"

    It wouldn't surprise me a bit if they genuinely WERE surprised. Obama said it was going to improve... therefor, they bought it...hook line and sinker. So when the inevitable happened, they were taken by surprise. The really ODD thing is that it has happened to them over and over and they still take the bait every time. And we thought fish were stupid....go figure.

    Possible,

    but seeing how the MSM gives him a "free ride", it would not surprise me if they are being genuinely dishonest by trying to make it sound not so bad

    Either way, it's scary to think that one man has that much psychological power over a group of mindless ingrades who would rather lie to America than stand up for it.

    The rumor out is that the unemployment numbers that are going to be released are
    not going to be good

    But be assured, if they are bad, it will be "unexpectedly"
