Wow! This is great news, just around the corner from Election Day. You skeptics, I know what you’re thinking. But it is strictly coincidence that Barack Obama needs these numbers more than Al Gore needs to turn himself over to Jenny Craig.
In the homestretch of a presidential race where every minute shift in the economy can translate into potential votes, both campaigns took aim Friday at the Labor Department’s estimate that the jobless rate fell below 8 percent for the first time in nearly four years.
President Obama’s team touted the numbers as a sign the economy is improving. Mitt Romney, along with several economists, expressed deep skepticism about the report.
The data even elicited a conspiracy theory from former General Electric CEO Jack Welch, who tweeted: “Unbelievable jobs numbers…these Chicago guys will do anything…can’t debate so change numbers.”
We would like to take this opportunity to point out that voters should disregard new poll numbers showing Mitt Romney pulling ahead in swing states. They mean absolutely nothing. Romney has one good night and you guys… Sheesh!
