American Thinker: Job Losses and Obama

Now ironically, this has given some cover to Obama and his apologists to claim that the economy was losing 700 thousand jobs a month when he took office. It is a claim he droned on again about yesterday on CNBC's Town Hall. It is a claim permanently stamped on his teleprompter script right around something about "what got us into this mess in the first place" and "failed policies of the past."
Actually, 600 thousand a month is roughly the figure for the period of November 08 through January 09. And these losses marked a sharp uptick from the previous three months. Now let's think -- what could have possibly happened in, say very early November, to cause this?

Oh yeah, Obama was elected. What a coincidence!
