Jack Welch: Obama Is Manipulating The Jobs Numbers

The jobs numbers truther movement begins

On the heels of a better-than-expected jobs report showing the unemployment rate declined to below 8 percent for the first time since President Barack Obama took office, former GE CEO Jack Welch is accusing the president of gaming the data for his reelection.

And others join in the fun:

Every single effort to cal Romney a liar will be met with the fake Unemployment number

I don't think BLS cooked numbers. I think a bunch of Dems lied about getting jobs. That would have same effect.

This just proves what a criminal Obama is. He has lied & forced his labor dept to report 7.8% Unemployment with only 114,000 jobs created.

And you don't believe the numbers are rigged? Even assuming they are legitimate 80% of the increase are Part Time Jobs

How do 800,000 people leave the work force; 114,000 jobs created and this is touted as good news...? Unemp rate is rigged!

Job numbers OUT, 7,9 % on 103,000 Jobs, Rigged by Odummer to make public believe he created Jobs, Still 23 Million out of WORK !

Adding 114k jobs in 1 month is not enough to drop UE-3 by .3%!! Numbers have to be rigged, need 150k to keep up w/ pop growth!!

Economists predicted 118k jobs and the rate to rise. 114k were added and the rate fell #rigged. That story & more @ http://t.co/jDQKHCZ9

Let's hear @MittRomney methodically expose the meaningless and misleading Labor Dept "7.8 percent" unemployment number. Agree?
