The story the State Run Media refuses to print! If this were a private sector entity they would have been fired by now. When the Democrats took over control of Congress in January 2007 the US unemployment rate was 4.4%. Somehow the State Run Media had convinced the American Public that those were the worst of times. The fact that the US Economy was in the midst of 55 consequetive months of job growth was ignored. In those days Budget Deficits of $400 Billion were lampooned. (They are over 4 times as large now and growing).
Now flash forward to present day. Since the Democrats took over Congress over 8 Million Jobs have been lost. The unemployment rate has skyrocketed from 4.4 to 10%. They are beneath incompetent. They would have to improve to reach incompetence. Remember this the next time there is an election.
