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.
Unbelievable jobs numbers..these Chicago guys will do anything..can’t debate so change numbers— Jack Welch
And others join in the fun:
BLS Bureau of Lotta Shit. What happens when the people don’t accept the lies being force fed to us? See Declaration of Independence. #obama— Steve Lemois
Horrible debate for Obama; the most manipulative and politically sensitive economic figure (unemployment rate) declines below 8% #conspiracy— Pack fan Luke
Every single effort to cal Romney a liar will be met with the fake Unemployment number— Morgan Warstler
I don’t think BLS cooked numbers. I think a bunch of Dems lied about getting jobs. That would have same effect.— Conn Carroll
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.— Fritz Harrod
And you don’t believe the numbers are rigged? Even assuming they are legitimate 80% of the increase are Part Time Jobs— Glenn Grush
RT @Coondawg68: RIGGED:Unemployment Rate Falls Below 8% For 1st Time In 3Yrs; Only 114,000 Jobs Created (??!!) after weeks of rising claims?— PuterPrsn
How do 800,000 people leave the work force; 114,000 jobs created and this is touted as good news…? Unemp rate is rigged!— Barbara Foss
umm anyone else thing the jobs numbers are rigged? A .3% drop while only adding 114K jobs? Something smells rotten.— Jake98
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 !— Bflyboy13
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!!— Coby Clark
Economists predicted 118k jobs and the rate to rise. 114k were added and the rate fell #rigged. That story & more @ http://t.co/jDQKHCZ9— Jeremiah Farmer
Let’s hear @MittRomney methodically expose the meaningless and misleading Labor Dept “7.8 percent” unemployment number. Agree?— Laura Ingraham
