At the White House blog, Alan Krueger is blaming Bush -- or rather, "the damage caused by the financial crisis and deep recession that began at the end of 2007."
Tyler Durden today:
"... a total disaster for Obama, who has decided to sacrifice the perception of an improving economy just so he can give Bernanke a green light to goose the stockmarket" [with a new round of Quantitative Easing].
So what EEEJOT scheduled six fundraisers for Obama on the very same day the jobs numbers were to come out? If that person worked for me, they'd be joining the bloated ranks of the Unemployed... this morning.
Obama to Hold Six Fundraisers in One Day
With Republicans steamrollering ahead with a group of well-fed Super Pacs and an increasingly successful money effort by Mitt Romney, President Obama Friday will attend six fundraisers, a possible sign of budding desperation for a campaign that is lagging far behind its initial fundraising expectations.
Obama will travel to Minneapolis, where he will ensconce himself at the Bachelor Farmer Restaurant for three successive fundraising events. Afterward, he moves on to Chicago for a fundraiser at the Chicago Cultural Center and then two events at what appear to be separate private residences.
