Unemployment Numbers-=Social Security Disability - #3871 - Unemployment Explained: Obama's Disability Scammers - Townhall Finance (2) Obama's Plan for Bin Laden Raid. If It Fails, Blame the Military, Not Me - Townhall

I have to credit our own Mike Shedlock for writing about how Obama’s been able to drive down the topline unemployment number even though unemployment remains as a big problem today as it has ever been. ......In the last year, the civilian population rose by 3,638,000. Yet the labor force only rose by 945,000. Those not in the labor force rose by 2,693,000. In the last month, actual employment fell by 169,000, but the unemployment rate dropped by .1%. That is an amazing "achievement" to say the least. How did Obama do this magic trick of moving unemployment from a high of 10 percent to 8.1 percent without adding, you know, jobs? Well according to Shedlock, economists at JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Morgan Stanley say that those on Social Security Disability (SSDI) checks have risen by about 2.2 million. People who qualify for SSDI are automatically excluded from the workforce, meaning that you can actually have an economy losing jobs while technically the unemployment rate will go down as more people received disability benefits and are subtracted from the workforce. Social Security Disability is a picture perfect program scam for the Obama administration. It allows Obama to say that unemployment is going down, while adding to the rolls of people who are dependent on some sort of Democrat-Party enabled government assistance.  Read more.......  Steve Peters: Where are all the unemployed, some are hiding in plain sight collecting your hard earned tax dollars. First being paid with the safety net of two years of unemployment insurance and then handed a government lifetime hammock. All with a wink and a nod from Obama, because he wants a welfare state and an unemployment number below 8% on election day.

Obama's Plan for Bin Laden Raid.  If it Fails, Blame the Military, Not Me - Townhall - Remember when Obama's decision to give the okay for the Navy SEALs to take out Osama bin Laden was labeled as a "gutsy call?" Well that gutsy call wasn't left out of the usual Obama "take no responsiblity" blame game. According to former Attorney General Michael Mukasey, a "highly lawyered" memo was prepared just in case the raid went bad, pinning the blame not on President Obama, who has since taken credit for the killing, but on the military. Commander of the Joint Special Operations Command at the time, Navy Admiral McRaven would have seen the wrath of a failed mission, rather than President Obama. Mukasey explained the blame strategy on Fox News with Sean Hannity.  Video and Article contributed by Steve Peters.
