The baby duck analysis

Im still having quite a bit of trouble posting anything that isnt straight from my itsy fingers. I like giving you a taste before sending you somewhere else but it looks like that isnt possible again today. Anyway-- On with the show.......

Ah, i remember when unemployment dropped .1% to like 5.5% and the media spent weeks confirming that the apocalypse was upon us. The George Bush economy would cause world wide death and misery because it had hit FIVE and a HALF percent.

Hmmmm....isnt it weird then, after a year and a half of Obama's meandering, the unemployment rate is 9.7% and we havent seen one story of Earth's demise.

The media has become openly and unabashedly cheerleaders for this administration relying on the "baby duck" analysis to feign shock and bewilderment at the continuing bad economic news.

Baby duck? Yes, baby duck. Stolen from another blogger its premise is brilliant and right on the money.--

Every day is a brand new day, every unemployment claims report is the first one they’ve ever seen. So we get headlines like, “job situation improving” when the number of claims drops, and “unexpected increase” when the number rises.

So sad its gotta make you laugh

The facts about unemployment claims over the past year are much different then the narrative being spun by an ever bewildered liberal media complex.
