‘BOOM crowd’ conspicuously un-boomy as BLS releases dismal jobs report

What, no pom-poms and “rah-rah-econo-meh” from the usual suspects today?

Here’s why: Putting a positive spin on 7.3 percent unemployment is a fast track to beclownment no matter how cute the Left thinks its Obama cheerleader uniforms are.

We’re looking at downward revisions of June and July employment numbers and a 35-year low in workforce participation.

C’mon, give us an “O!”

Or not.

Update:

As always, the White House whips out the pom-poms.

Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers Jason Furman swears “the recovery has been durable in the face of several headwinds.”
