Why The GOP Can’t Run On The Issues

Posted by | September 5, 2008 20:28 | Filed under: Top Stories

Besides being the party that started the Iraq war, Republicans have to take responsibility for an economy whose numbers out Friday paint a difficult picture.  Unemployment went from 5.7 to 6.1 percent, the first time it’s been that high in five years. Eighty-four thousand jobs were lost in August, the ninth straight month of losses, and putting the total losses for the year at 605,000.  9.4 million Americans are unemployed compared to 7.1 million last year at this time, and economists are saying it will get worse before it gets better.
