Unemployment Rate? It’s Always Revised, So Why Not Now?

Jack Welch also chimed in today, saying on CNBC:

According to former GE Chairman and CEO Jack Welch it’s too good to be true!

Welch is known for being a straight shooter who says exactly what he thinks and Welch thinks politics was behind the drop in the unemployment rate not an improved economy.

And he’s not keeping quiet.

Welch first made his skepticism of the jobs data known in a fiery Tweet which read, “Unbelievable jobs numbers… these Chicago guys will do anything… can’t debate so change numbers.”

The 144 character or less message ignited quite a firestorm of controversy. And on The Kudlow Report Welch explained that his skepticism stems from personal research he’s been doing; that is sifting through data from over a dozen companies.

You can watch Welch here.

Call me suspicious. Of the numbers and the reporting.

    If you throw out the truth when it does not agree with your political agenda it often leads to disaster. How do you think we got into the war with IRAQ?


    Would you be willing to call Romney a liar after his latest endorsed ad claims that the American Enterprise Institute is a non partisan independent group with no political agenda.

    Here is what WIKIPEDIA has to say about it

    The American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research (AEI) is an American conservative think tank founded in 1943. Its stated mission is “to defend the principles and improve the institutions of American freedom and democratic capitalism—limited government, private enterprise, individual liberty and responsibility, vigilant and effective defense and foreign policies, political accountability, and open debate”

    Your candidate cares nothing about the truth, he only wants power, and this is a dangerous combination. Is this the type of man that you want to be the face of your political ideology? How do you know he is not lying to you?
