    The piece that you are conveniently overlooking is that every number the BLS uses to derive these unemployment numbers is adjusted, seasonally adjusted, inverted, smoothed, etc, etc, etc. None of the data used is the raw data. Now, the president needs a number under 8% and lo and behold, the new number is 7.8%!!
    And if anyone can smell a cooked number, it is Jack Welsh.

    Another in a recent line of rich people wanting to protect their Bush tax cuts (I guess). Like the others, Mr. Welch’s arguments defy gravity. I like earning and keeping the money I earn as much as the next man, but I am a little worried. Does being rich make you stupid? The evidence would appear to show that it does…

    ‘…If anyone can smell a cooked number…” So who else’s smell should we be prioritizing over math and statistics? Are they all ‘conservative’ media personalities?

    You sound quite rigorous, I would love to be home-schooled by you.

    Jack Welch in the WSJ today doubled down in his claim.

    He mentioned that Austan Goolsbee, late of the Obama administration, claimed in a 2003 op-ed contained in the NYT that the Bush administration cooked the books on employment numbers.

    Who knows? And if they do know, they aren’t yapping.
