Obama Economy: 10,000 Show Up at Chicago Jobs Fair

Sign of the times. Safe to say the majority of them are Obama voters. So how's that working out?
With renewed worries about the economy in the wake of the downgrade of the nation’s credit rating, nearly 10,000 people showed up for a job fair hosted by Congressman bobby Rush on Tuesday.

As WBBM Newsradio’s Bernie Tafoya reports, everyone from the CTA to Southwest Airlines to railroads and the military were on hand at Chicago State University for a transportation job fair.

And, as CBS 2′s Dorothy Tucker reports, as of 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, nearly 10,000 people had turned out.
Um, I think things were already in bad shape long before the downgrade.
