Get Ready for an Onslaught of “Positive” Economic Numbers
I wonder why there might be stories that portray good economic news. Just be on the lookout. Keep a sharp eye out tonight for Obama making subtle references in the form of, “I got a feelin’ things are turnin’ around. It’s taken a long while, but our policies are finally taking root, and then, voila! We all wake up tomorrow and, “Why, looky here! Unemployment is 7.9%,” or some such thing. I’m not predicting it. I’m just telling you that I won’t be surprised if it happens.
I heard about it. ABC Radio News, top of the hour, talking about the positive job outlook. Told you. The numbers are minuscule, something like — oh, I’ve got ’em here, 16,000 fewer applications or something. They’re gonna massage these numbers. The next two days, folks, they’re gonna wear you out, and I’m just telling you now, don’t get dispirited by this stuff. It isn’t gonna matter next week and the week after that. It’s just the media and the pro-Obama forces doing whatever they can here, because they’ve got a disaster of a convention going, quite the opposite of what they want you and everybody else to think.
