Bushit by Numbers, Pre-debate 2 Edition

Bank of America Corporation announced yesterday that it would cut an additional 4,500 jobs. This brings its total projected job cuts to 17,000 in the wake of a merger with FleetBoston Financial corp.

AT & T Corp. will be firing an additional 7,400 employees this year, bringing the total job loss for the year to 12,300 jobs. The move follows the company's plan to withdraw from the consumer telephone business.

A tip of the paper pirate hat to our boy Georgie, folks. It takes a lot of gall to be so blindingly stupid in this day and age.

And let's all remember, the unemployment rate touted by the Bushista regime does not include those people out of work who
  • are no longer seeking employment
  • have exhausted their unemployment benefits

I suspect the actual percentage of able-bodied people out of work is significantly higher than the 5.4% rate coming out of the Department of Labor.
