Morning Coffee Break – Unemployment, San Bernardino, Mitt, Chick-Fil-A – for Friday, August 3, 2012

U-6 “real” unemployment, San Bernardino, toxic Mitt?, Chick-Fil-A,

  • June’s job’s report was revised down from 80,000 to 64,000, with a better than expected July report of 165,000 jobs created.  The unemployment rate rose to 8.3%, however, the number economists watch that gives the true picture of unemployment is the U-6 rate, which is in double digits in 47 out of 50 states.
  • When you begin to feel sorry for yourself, consider the residents of San Bernardino, whose city officially filed for Chapter 9 bankruptcy (h/t AP).
  • Gotta love Buzzfeed, they’re on to Axelrod’s strategy, make Mitt so toxic, the white vote stays home, hence Obama wins another term.
  • Not employee of the year material.  The goofball, who taped himself harassing a Chick-Fil-A employee in a drive-thru window, got his walking papers.  (h/t Daily Caller)  He was a McDonald’s man at heart anyway.
