President Obama's team slams
critics of new unemployment
statistics as 'lunatics'

New York Daily News, by Tracy Connor

Posted By:PageTurner, 10/7/2012 1:22:11 PM

President Obama’s advisers attacked critics for suggesting the White House fudged jobs figures, comparing them to “lunatic” birthers. The sub-8% unemployment stats were released by the non-partisan Bureau of Labor Statistics Friday, but former GE chief Jack Welch and several Tea Party figures claimed the numbers were cooked. Obama campaign senior adviser Robert Gibbs called such comments “incredibly dangerous” and said Welch had embarrassed himself. “There's a number of people that believe the real unemployment report is somewhere in a safe in Nairobi with the president's Kenyan birth certificate," Gibbs said sarcastically on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday.

Question the sharpest employment gain in 29 years just ahead of election and get called a lunatic. Don't dare question the king!

I question the methodology. I also question the sudden embrace of the household survey. No one cared about the household survey in July when it showed a loss of 195,000 jobs or August when it showed a loss of 120,000 jobs. 7.8% is a load of bs. Only those who work in bs for a living can justify it.

The lunatics calling the normal people crazy... How Alinsky-ish of them. What percentage of Democrats believe that 9/11 was an inside job of the US Govt? I can't remember but it was somewhere between 30 and 40% of Dems.

A number of highly respected economists and other astute individuals have publicly stated the new figure could not have been reached without "Cooking the books", That could hardly be described as lunacy.

If all these newly found workers were really working why did the GDP drop.

It's the old story, figures don't lie but liars figure.

The O administration is so filled with liars no one can believe a word they say.

Name calling is not required if one is right on the substance of the argument.

It is, in fact, an admission of guilt.

The BLS is in bed with the Mulatto Kid and the liars in the administration. They have all drunk the Kool-Aid in order to keep their jobs.

I don't believe the numbers; I don't believe the administration and their bumblers; and I certainly don't believe the lying statistics.

So suspicious when it all comes out just before the election.

It took 525,000 part time jobs appearring from nowhere to push unemployment down.

Should we even be counting part-time jobs the same as full time jobs?

Sneering and sarcasm are ad hominem attacks upon skeptics that neither address the actual issue nor reflect credit upon those who resort to such childish tactics. It is certainly not irrational to be skeptical of information dispensed by the Obama administration, particularly in the context of a close election.

U-16 unemployment rate (unemployed + those working part time for lack of full time jobs) remained unchanged at 14.7%, average wages up a miniscule 1.8% in last 12 months, 2012 GDP growth to be lowest in 3 years and median household incomes down by $4,000, to barely $50,000. Yet we're the lunatics? We will be if we vote for more BO.

Since 1960 only two times in history has UE dropped by 5 points in a two month span.

First was 1984 with Reagan (May & June) - rate went from 7.7 to 7.2. Total jobs created during 2 month span was 680k. GDP for recent quarter was 8%.

Only other time (in over 50 years) is right now with Obama (Aug & Sep) - rate went from 8.3 to 7.8 (30 days to go before election). Total jobs created during 2 month span was 250k. GDP for recent quarter is 1.25%.

But we are lunatics. Riiiiiight.

I just can not wait to see the drop in people on food stamps due to the addition of these glorious jobs. /s

The food stamp program has doubled in size since 2008 and quadrupled since 2001. Spending on food stamps alone is projected to reach $770 billion over the next decade, according to the minority side of the Senate Budget Committee.

October 29 there should be a Hunter's Moon, I will be sure to express my 'lunatic' feelings shortly afterward, on Nov. 6, by voting for a change in leadership to appease Comrade Gibbs' astute observations.

Nobel Prize-winning novelist Gabriel Garcia Marquez, who was praised as the most popular Spanish writer since Cervantes, died today in Mexico City at the age of 87. Garcia Marquez, a former journalist who was born in Colombia but lived in Mexico for more than 30 years, is best known for his 1967 masterpiece, the epic, hallucinatory novel One Hundred Years of Solitude, about the trials and tribulations of one family over several generations. Widely taught in college, it has sold about 50 million copies in more than 25 languages. His other novels include Autumn of the Patriarch (1975), about a pathological fascist

Regarding the government´s so-called economic offensive, Ramírez stressed their new approach will focus on "production sectors so as to produce our own supplies and food." "Our economy has been under attack, and we will not wait until next year to take action; on the contrary, we have created a new exchange system, we have opened up new ways to allow the inflow of dollars," he stressed.

India´s Supreme Court has created an official third sex for its transgender eunuchs and announced they will have a quota of government jobs and college places to help them overcome discrimination. The decision was met with jubilation by transgender charities who said it was a milestone in their fight against marginalisation in Indian society. "We are elated and thankful to the court," said Kalki Subramanium, a leading transgender rights activist. "The decision has come after a century of suppression and marginalisation by the legal and social systems. "This verdict is certainly landmark and a new beginning. The biggest challenge is the social recognition.

At least 12 people are dead and more than 2,000 homes have been destroyed by a large fire that wreaked havoc over the weekend in Valparaiso, Chile. Some 10,000 people have been forced to evacuate parts of the port city. Government spokesman Álvaro Elizalde says those figures are likely to go up as the fire continues to burn. The fire has been driven by strong winds, and efforts to fight the flames also have been complicated by the area´s steep terrain and lack of essential infrastructure, as NPR´s Lourdes Garcia-Navarro reports for our Newscast unit.

Amnesty: President Obama often laments "our broken immigration system" as a reason for his failure to enforce its laws. But as a wave of illegals is about to descend here, the hard fact is that it´s his own policies that broke it. The nonpartisan Inter-American Development Bank and the Migration Policy Institute both reported optimal conditions for a big wave of illegal immigration into the U.S. from Mexico and Central America soon. Based on the slowdown in China´s economy, a recovery in U.S. low-skilled jobs such as construction, and rising U.S. interest rates, it´s fair enough.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.
