The GOP’s pseudo-patriots are hoping that Friday’s jobs report will be a bad one

Eric Fehrnstrom (the Etch-A-Sketch guy, remember?), a campaign adviser to Mitt Romney, says he and his fellow Republicans are “all hoping for good news” when the Labor Department releases its jobs report for August on Friday.

Oh, really?

It should be obvious to one and all that Fehrnstrom’s idea of “good news” would not be good for the country. After all, his party has shown no inclination to help improve the jobs situation, as we see HERE:

Republicans have repeatedly blocked [President] Obama’s jobs legislation. In July, the Senate refused to allow a vote on the president’s American Jobs Act, which would have given incentives for companies to “insource” jobs rather than ship them overseas and by most reports would have stimulated GDP growth. As Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) reaffirmed in 2010, “Our top political priority over the next two years should be to deny President Obama a second term.”



  1. Hoping for bad news or ready to take advantage of bad news if it is announced?

    I am sure the Democrats never did any such thing. Certainly not as it would relate to our troops and their morale?

    And what is it with Harry Reid anyway? I am starting to think he hears voices or something. To think, he is the leader of the Democrats in the Senate.


    The Senate debate on Iraq grew sharper Thursday when Majority Leader Harry Reid said the war had been lost and that President Bush’s troop buildup is not stemming the rampant violence. That statement prompted Republicans to declare that Democrats do not support the troops in Iraq.

    “I believe myself that the secretary of state, secretary of defense and — you have to make your own decisions as to what the president knows — (know) this war is lost and the surge is not accomplishing anything as indicated by the extreme violence in Iraq yesterday,” said Reid.

  2. Hey Doc let’s send Bush and company to the Hague, that should settle the Iraq matter.
