Sharpton spins 8.3% unemployment as “fantastic” for Obama

Rest assured that regardless of whether or not the economy actually improves between now and November, the GOP nominee will be running against a “recovering” economy. For example just listen to the way Al Sharpton spins the current 8.3% unemployment rate in this clip, as if it’s an ace-in-the-hole for Obama that somehow inoculates him from GOP criticism on the economy.

Never mind the fact that we were told the stimulus was going to keep unemployment below 8% but ended up being nothing but a colossal waste of money.
