While the unemployment results and lackluster private job creation numbers continue, month in and month out, to be “unexpected”, those of you who remember the Ford Administration and the “WIN” (“Whip Inflation Now”) button could pretty well bet something like this was coming up:

Vice President Biden today will kick off “Recovery Summer,” a six-week-long push designed to highlight the jobs accompanying a surge in stimulus-funded projects to improve highways, parks, drinking water and other public works.

Perhaps they can hand out “Whip United States’ Stagnation” buttons, too.
