8. That's because he knows his economic recovery plan is pure bullshit
His "plan" to improve the economy is to focus on the family. Apparently he thinks that if he could just get people to go to church, not divorce or have kids out of wedlock, and stamp out pornography and other evils, that somehow everything will just magically improve.
That's why he doesn't care about unemployment figures...you know, stuff that has to deal with the real world.
