Good News for the President: Economy Generating Obama Campaign Contributors Twice as Fast as New Jobs

There is still hope for the future… his, not necessarily yours:

Here’s an interesting couple of numbers that emerged during this past week: According to Jim Messina, his campaign manager, through the second quarter of 2011, President Obama now has 552,000 contributors to his 2012 re-election campaign.

And the Bureau of Labor Statistics announced that during the same two quarters, the U.S. economy generated 260,000 jobs.

If that was the other way around he’d be in big trouble. Whew!

On a separate note, the Obama Curse™ rampages on.
