Big Jump in Unemployment Claims

When will Obama start to blame Romney?
(Reuters) - The number of Americans filing new claims for jobless benefits rose more than expected last week, with several states reporting an increase related to Tropical Storm Isaac. Initial claims for state unemployment benefits rose 15,000 to a seasonally adjusted 382,000, the highest in two months, the Labor Department said on Thursday. The prior week's figure was revised UP to show 2,000 more applications than previously reported. Economists polled by Reuters had forecast claims rising to 370,000 last week.
75 upward revisions in 76 weeks. Does anyone honestly believe that's not intentional?
