GOSH, AND WHO WAS PRESIDENT 27 YEARS AGO?
The Wingers, of course, are smugly directing our attention to this:
Black unemployment: Highest in 27 years
The August jobs report was dismal for plenty of reasons, but perhaps most striking was the picture it painted of racial inequality in the job market.
Black unemployment surged to 16.7% in August, its highest level since 1984...
Obvious point: who was president in 1984? The guy Obama's harshest critics revere above all other demigods. The guy whose view of government Obama has either accepted voluntarily or had forced on him by those same critics -- your choice as to which interpretation you believe.
Reagan policies, Reagan results. No surprise.
