Before I get deep into this post, allow me to take a moment to give major props to the Speaker of the House, John Boehner. I don’t know if you’ve heard — because, unlike me you’re busy watching Reality TV — but the unemployment rate has now fallen to 7.8 percent. This is a record low under the Obama presidency. And me being the person that I am — a person who believes in giving props when it is due — I’d like to thank Speaker Boehner for all the hard work and effort he has put forth in Congress to get us to this point since taking over from Obama’s socialism-loving-friend, Nancy Pelosi in 2010.
You see, Boehner’s brand of leadership is just what America needs right now.
Let’s be honest: without him and the House Republicans, where would we be today?
So, I’d like to say a heartfelt thank you to Speaker Boehner — a man who not only asked, “Where are the jobs?” But a man who actually went out and created them. And for that, we owe him a wealth of gratitude for his effective leadership, and commitment to America, and the millions of jobless workers oppressed from the moment Obama took the oath of office back in January, 2009.
But of course, left-wing haters are trying to make Republican patriots look bad:
The economy added 114,000 jobs in September and unemployment declined to 7.8 percent. Not great numbers, but paired with major upward revisions to previous monthly reports and taken in the context of a slowly recovering economy, the report was viewed as good news for America.
Unless, of course, you were hoping for bad news. And apparently quite a few of President Obama’s critics were — so much so that they suggested the Bureau of Labor Statistics was part of a vast conspiracy.
The leader of the “job truther” movement: former GE CEO Jack Welch.
“Unbelievable jobs numbers..these Chicago guys will do anything..can’t debate so change numbers,” he said on Twitter.
He had some friends in Congress too. Rep. Allen West (R-FL) tweeted “I agree with former GE CEO Jack Welch, Chicago style politics is at work here.” He added on Facebook that the jobs report was “Orwellian to say the least and representative of Saul Alinsky tactics from the book ‘Rules for Radicals.’” FOX News’ Stuart Varney apparently sensed where his audience was going. Within minutes of their release he told viewers that “there is widespread mistrust of this report and these numbers.” “How convenient the rate drops below 8% [for the] first time in 43 months, five weeks before the election,” he added later.
As you could expect, Obama’s pro-socialist minions were easily swayed (as always) by the lamestream media as they slapped high-fives to celebrate America’s do-nothing lazy president. Like all Obama Kool Aid drinkers, they were quick to defend his obvious attempt to smear Jack Welch on Twitter rather than congratulate Boehner as I have. I mean, isn’t it pretty obvious that Obama has hacked into Welch’s Twitter account, and Allen West’s Facebook account for political expediency? I mean, that’s what a desperate man who was recently embarrassed in a debate on national television would do, right?Exactly! He’d rig things to make himself not look like an abject failure that he is.
But, don’t tell that to the Obamabots:
