Hey thanks for watching -- tonight more bad economic news should we be -- that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo.
Big news this morning the unemployment rate ticking up to eight point 2% in May the first increase in eleven months.
And just 69000.
Jobs are created in America that is dismal.
And does not bode well for president Obama's reelection.
Rasmussen daily tracking poll out today shows Mitt Romney 46% Barack Obama 45 that number dangerous.
For the president.
And runny -- yesterday he was in California pounding mr.
On the economy and visiting the bankrupt Solyndra corporation.
A failed enterprise across attacks fair cool.
500 million dollars.
Revenue I was here about how this building this business as a symbol.
Of the success in his stimulus.
You can see that's a symbol of something very different today.
It's as simple lot of success for the failure.
The question now becomes why is the economy so bad -- talking points believes the answer is simple fear.
Many employers are afraid to hire people because they don't know of consumers will buy or are.
What their health care costs are going to be also the folks themselves aren't spending very much because they don't know they're gonna have jobs next month.
Investors -- as well.
Crazy oil prices and a very unstable stock market eroding confidence and to that madness in Europe insanity in Iran.
And the Far East slowing down.
And you have a perfect storm of economic fear that no president could overcome.
about -- huge economic debt by spending trillions of dollars on a variety of projects Solyndra being one of that that is not worked the economy is not improving quickly enough to LA fears.
President continues to say his strategy will pay off soon.
That's more about hope than anything else there is absolutely no data to back that up.
So Americans must make a decision.
Changed the economic course or hold tight.
Instead of big government pouring money into the economy mr.
Romney wants to allow the private sector to drive the train it's kind of complicated but it's your life.
The decision is between.
The government running the economy or private business being in charge and I hate to say this that many Americans perhaps most have no clue about economics.
But they do understand one thing.
They are afraid.
