Some Good Economic News, For a Change

One month does not a recovery make, but this chart sure looks better than it did last month:

I don't think it would hurt to point out that our nation's real job collapse started at the beginning of 2008, as Bush Administration Conservative economic policy had its inevitable effect, and bottomed out in March, 2009, a mere 3 months after the adults in the country (that would be Obama and the Democrats) took over.  Since then, there has been virtually continuous progress.  The painful slowness of that progress is due to two factors:  First, the traitorous Republicans have done everything they could to see to it that the American people suffer as much as possible, so that they could make the maximum partisan gain out of our distress.  Second, the damage done by the Bush (and Reagan) administrations was far more than anyone wants to admit.

But here we are, with the Republican party back in a position to loot our economy and leave us even worse off.  What a world.

Well that, or they will claim credit for it.

Sad to say, they will probably do both- simultaneously attack Obama for things being terrible and pat themselves on the back for how great things are.
