Unemployment Falls to 8.5%, Newt Gingrich Keeps on Spinning!

Newt GingrichTo some, anything President Barack Obama is set out to do is bad for America. Newt Gingrich thinks PBO's economic policies are a failure despite the latest jobs numbers reported by US Department of Labor which noted that 200,000 nonfarm payroll jobs was added in December 2011. Of course this brings the unemployment rate to 8.5%, lowest level in nearly three years, from 8.6% at the end of November 2011.

An employment of 8.5% is the lowest since President Obama took office in January of 2008 but Newt Gingrich and his ilks dread as usual any positive accomplishments of the President's economical policy by making statements like:

"The Obama experiment has failed, and it is time to look to proven solutions that have successfully empowered job-creators in the past."

It sounds like he wants 8 years of another Bushist administration in the White House. May be someone should remind him and those teabagging Republicans the truth about that proven solution (War and Tax Cuts for the rich) that accounts for over half of public debt.

I just don't know why Newt Gingrich continues to act like an ass all the time considering the fact that 3 million private sector jobs have been created in 2010 and 2011. May I suggest he takes a good looks at the following chart about how President Obama's economic policies have reverse one of the worse recessions in American History?

I guess 22 consecutive months of positive private sector job numbers is not an easy pill to swallow considering the fact Newt and the Republican Party are more interested in tearing down the US Economy and the American people before the 2012 Presidential Election so that they can score political talking point to demonize and mischaracterize President Obama's policies to use it to in the effort to win the White house.

Well, what most Americans can't seem to comprehend is easily depicted in this cartoon.
