Horrible News For Dems So Close to the Election

Oh the humanity!

The number of laid off workers filing claims for unemployment benefits dropped sharply last week to the lowest level in nearly three months.

The Labor Department reported that 299,000 people filed for jobless benefits, a decline of 10,000 from the previous week. It was the lowest level for jobless claims since the week ending July 22.

Suggested Democrat spin: “In Bush’s desperation to detract from how many unemployed people there are, he has ordered the disenfranchisement of the desperate and hungry via making it difficult if not impossible for them to reach the unemployment office.”
