Just another aspect of Bush's legacy manifesting itself.

ABC:

New claims for jobless benefits rose more than expected last week, exceeding even gloomy expectations for an economy stuck in a recession that seems to be deepening.

The Labor Department reported Thursday that initial applications for jobless benefits in the week ending Dec. 6 rose to a seasonally adjusted 573,000 from an upwardly revised figure of 515,000 in the previous week. That was far more than the 525,000 claims Wall Street economists expected.

Seriously: How does this man sleep at night knowing that, ultimately, he needs to take responsibility for the state of the American economy? Not to mention all the other things he's royally screwed up?
