To be honest, the economy did create jobs at a higher pace than anticipated, and the highest total in several months. But even MSNBC had to admit the obvious:
But the economy still is far from creating enough jobs to do much for the 12.8 million Americans who are out of work. And the unemployment rate edged up to 8.3 percent from 8.2 percent in June, signaling that more Americans may have given up looking for work.The numbers speak for themselves--Barack Obama has never been at the helm for an unemployment rate under 8%. Of course, many on the left will simply cry that businesses are colluding to not hire and create jobs just so the economy looks bad enough for Romney to beat Obama.
But, given recent developments, everyone knows businesses don't create jobs--someone else makes that happen. Small-business owners are simply the beneficiaries of our benevolent government.
Just ask Obama.
Given that our President appears to believe that the government bestows on us all things ever created, it's about time Obama started creating some friggin' jobs.
