As part of a campaign to portray his election inevitable, because the economy is juuuuust hunky dory, Governor
Messinger Dayton and his praetorian guard, the Twin Cities media, is pushing hard the notion that unemployment is down.
Jeff Johnson rightly responds that underemployment – people working for less than they’re qualified for, because they’re taking any job they can get – is endemic and growing – a claim supported by the fact that tax revenues have not only fallen short of forecasts every month since the DFL budget took hold, but that the revenues are falling farther and farther behind.
The interesting part? The Strib itself, in the form of Lori Sturdevant – hardly a GOP sympathizer – last spring.
So which is it, Strib? A huge problem, or no problem at all (until December)?
Go ahead. Tell me the media isn’t actively working to get Governor
Messinger Flint-Smith Dayton re-elected.
