"Unexpectedly" Compilation

Damned Biased Media!

It's not unexpected at all. It's bias. If the media uses that word, then the average sheeple thinks that, well, this one statistic is bad, but the rest of the economy is getting better under Obama.

It's all a big lie from a biased media!

"Unexpectedly" Compilation

The Main Stream Media seems to be constantly shocked at how poorly the American economy is doing under ObamaNomics.  Whenever poor business, house, or job news comes out, they are quick to throw on the word "unexpectedly," pretending that the economy is actually doing great, but this one time it hiccuped.  But the problem is, the poor economic news is quite expected because of President Obama's incompetence.

So, I decided to take some time and compile some of the "unexpectedlies" from the start of the year until today.  But before I begin, just remember what Albert Einstein once said (which is normally attributed to Benjamin Franklin): "Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."

A reader calling himself JB did a great job chronologically sorting out the headlines.  He did such a good job, I figured that it had to be it's own article.  So once again, "Our Media Watchdogs" at work:
