President Barack Obama might not be able to debate very well (or at all, judging by whom you ask), but when it comes to playing with numbers, there are few who can keep up with him.
The Associated Press reported today that the “U.S. unemployment rate fell to 7.8 percent last month, dropping below 8 percent for the first time in nearly four years and giving President Barack Obama a potential boost with the election a month away.
“The rate declined from 8.1 percent because the number of people who said they were employed soared by 873,000 – an encouraging sign for an economy that’s been struggling to create enough jobs.”
To say that’s suspicious – that such commendable numbers get published just two days after Obama received horrible reviews in his first presidential debate against Mitt Romney – is like calling Vice President Joe Biden a little bit stupid: It’s a colossal understatement.
Once again, the President and his administration are proving what they really think of the American people…
And folks? What they think of us is far short of flattering.
