Unexpectedly

There’s that word again. Have you noticed that over the last six years when the LSM propaganda arm of the Dimocrat Party writes about bad economic news they always seem to use the word unexpectedly? Here’s an example from a story in the LA Slimes that I read in the Business Page of the Atlanta Urinal and Constipation this morning.

Inflation unexpectedly jumped last month as higher prices for food, energy and other items pushed the annual rate above the Federal Reserve’s preferred 2% target, the Commerce Department said Tuesday.

The new data could lead central bank policymakers to act more quickly to raise rock-bottom short-term interest rates.

The only surprise to me is that the inflation rate isn’t higher since we have the Federal Reserve printing money at an alarming rate.

And where’s that recovery we were promised six years ago. After years of “recovery summers”, “green shoots”, and “funemployment” we’re still mired in the doldrums of a sputtering economy. As for energy prices rising, wouldn’t it be nice to have the Keystone Pipeline that Obungler keeps delaying? Canada is just about to give up and is trying to get approval from the Canadian gummint to run a pipeline to the west coast of Canada to ship the oil to China.

But we did get our first black president, but don’t dare criticize him because that would be raaaaa-cist.
