    I don't see how it proves that. It shows that normally you reference the numbers when it strengthens your case but when it doesn't....the source is no longer valid. Seems to be reaaaalllly popular on the right. When something comes out you don't like you just ignore it and call it propaganda. Must be nice to live in an irrational world where the only "truth" is whatever validates your beliefs.

    Hilarious
    It only seems to be a conspiracy if it goes against one's political inclinations. You have plenty of other means of looking at the data which could be beneficial to your side, but instead you chose to see a conspiracy.

    [QUOTE=Bronson;1060988086]Your Government is blatantly lying to you and you could care less

    They lied about Benghazi, what makes you believe they are telling the truth now? I mean seriously, these numbers are going to wither under scrutiny and calls are going to start being made for this laughable patchwork "7.8%" to be revised before the election. This is laughable Soviet style propaganda.

    114K Jobs added and the rate droppedhalf a %? Really? I mean are you kidding me right now? Disability has doubled since Obama took office. People are unemployed longer than ever before. People digging and dumpsters and eating rats aren't even being counted in the Labor Market. Gas prices are spiking over 5 dollars a gallon in CA and skyrocketing all over the country. Food Prices and other Commodities are risen in price by more than 25%.

    This is what a real October Surprise looks like. Welcome to Chicago Politics.[/QUOT

    Strange, the only PROVEN example of a U.S. administration blatantly lying to the American public that I can recall in recent history was when "W" claimed we had to invade Iraq to seize nonexistent WMDs.

    Of course it proves it

    How do you go from 8.2% - 7.8% Unemployment with 1.3% GDP Growth. How is that even possible? We would need to see very robust GDP Growth to see such a sudden dramatic shift in one month. Great timing for a President who got knocked the F out in front of 70 million on National TV literally 2 nights ago right? He is desperate to stop the bleeding and change the narrative. This is Soviet Style blatant Propaganda from your Government.

    When they revise this number back up over 8% after Romney is elected President will we finally have your permission to label Obama rightly the liar he is without being called a racist?

    Sure...must be time to wear tin foil hats and build a bunker in the backyard. I mean...GDP numbers are never revised, economic indicators haven't been trending in a positive direction for awhile, it's not like unemployment has been lower for longer than a lot of people expected based on other data. Must be the government has decided to juke the numbers after the debate.

    For the record, it is (apparently) common knowledge that the President sees the employment numbers well before they are made public AND that he knew of them before the debate.

    When the monthly employment rate climbs more than the birth rate entering the labor market that is positive. Anytime it is below that rate we are losing ground.

    Here is another way to look at it, currently our employment numbers are down on average 5%. To get our employed up to 72% is a huge number of people that need jobs.

    Employment-to-population ratios
    Persons aged 15-64 years (percentages)

    It is not my understand that the president sees these numbers well before anything, the day or evening before they are published is my understanding. If the numbers are available then why would they not purplish them?

    All I can tell you is that several publications and/or op eds pieces I have read (like the Silexx Market Preview, for example) have stated that the POTUS sees the numbers well before they are released. And that he saw them before the debate.

    Tin foil hats? Again the mocking humiliation tactics that you cultists deploy whenever anyone questions your messiah DOES NOT CONCERN ME

    The truth is what concerns me. Maybe it's not what concerns you, but it concerns me. I don't like it when my Government lies to me ok? Nothing racist or CT about that. Yes Unemployment magically drops below 8% after the worst debate performance by any president in history or something. Obama! Obama!
