Um, this is the lead in from the article: "The number of U.S. workers filing for jobless benefits surged last week as a result of superstorm Sandy, which displaced thousands of Northeast residents and shuttered businesses." Sandy is not an also-ran but the central reason in the article. There's no mention of the other stuff in the first two paragraphs. After this past weekend's "Massive Voter Fraud" report, which amounted to a misreading of a poorly designed spreadsheet, I'm starting to worry about accuracy and may be exploring RedState for my conservative news.

The massive shedding of jobs in light of an Obama re-election has started. Weekly jobless numbers have jumped *up* from 73,000 to 430,000 according to the Wall Street Journal. These job losses come after warning signs this week from the markets and business owners who say they can't afford to keep employees with ObamaCare and the fiscal cliff looming. Hurricane Sandy also had an effect on increasing these numbers.

Sandy drove the number of people seeking unemployment benefits up to a seasonally adjusted 439,000 last week, the highest level in 18 months.
