Quick, the in-laws are coming tab dump

Surprise, surprise, the job market “unexpectedly” didn’t get any better.   But Obama says we’re moving “in the right direction.”

He’s right, only not about the economy.  Charlie Cook now thinks the Senate could flip, too. 

But I digress.  The money (pardon the expression since no one has any) quote from Obama:

In the month I took office, we were losing 750,000 jobs a month. This morning, new figures show the economy produced 67,000 private sector jobs in August, the eighth consecutive month of private job growth.  Additionally, the numbers for July were revised upward to 107,000. Now that’s positive news, and it reflects the steps we’ve already taken to break the back of this recession.

What he didn’t mention?  The net loss of 54,000 jobs last month.  Just a wee detail, no?

Maybe he didn’t notice between rounds of golf.

Must reads: Pundette has proof that Obama is engaged on the economy.  And AJ Strata employs graphs to explain the dismal jobs report.  Hint: it’s not quite as rosy as Obama would have you believe.  Jennifer Rubin thinks O’s detached air will get the Dems trounced in the fall.  I’m inclined to agree.  More, please, Mr. President.  And Professor Jacobson discusses the Democrats worst nightmare: losing the youth vote.  Maybe the other victims of identity politics will wisen up, too

Finally, for a make you laugh: Tim Pawlenty likens the government to a crack peddler.  It’s must-see.

Also: The Revolt of the Bourgeoise

That’s it for now.  My must-dos include mopping the floor one last time, loading the dishwasher, folding another load of laundry, and prepping dinner.  The glamorous life of a naptime blogger, eh?
