Really? IS this recovery? Jobless Claims in U.S. Rose to Highest Since November - Bloomberg I can't wait for the administration announcement about how the jobless claims would be over 1,000,000 if not for their stimulus program. Why do they keep saying claims shot up "UNEXPECTEDLY" ? Whay would the result of moronic economic be expected to do anything but destroy jobs? So this is what an Obama-Reid-Pelosi 'recovery' looks like. Wish they hadn't done anything and unemployment had peaked at 8.3% as Obama claimed would happen if we didn't give him a 800B union slush fund to play with.
