No Jobs R Us

Wanna see some real figures about the employment situation that Prez Bush's tax cuts hath wrought? The Economic Policy Institute's "Job Watch" gathers the actual numbers. Despite the hype on Fox News and among other cheerleaders for Bush, George W.'s "Jobs and Growth Plan" still fell "249,000 jobs short of the administration's projection" last month. And this site also shows North & South Carolina as among the states that "have lost over 10% of their manufacturing jobs in just two years."

A partial explanation for why Bush's approval rating was discovered to be sinking in North Carolina in a recent state-wide poll.
