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.
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.”
