Jack Welch says what we’re all thinking — Obama fudged jobless numbers

When no less a luminary in the business world than former GE CEO Jack Welch says the Obama Administration fudged the jobless numbers in September, everyone perks up and listens.

Friday the Obama machine said that non-farm payrolls added 114,000 new jobs in September, sending the unemployment rate falling to 7.8 percent. To boot, Team Obama went back and revised the numbers for both August and July to make them look better.

To this Welch sent this message on Twitter: "Unbelievable jobs numbers … these Chicago guys will do anything …can’t debate so change the numbers."

After what we saw the Obama Administration do after the deaths in Benghazi, Libya — deliberately tell untruths about who killed our ambassador to shield Obama’s Middle-East policies from criticism — it’s not any stretch at all to think that Jack Welch is right about the jobless numbers.

Jack Welch just said what we’re all thinking, these jobless numbers are "unbelievable".

Movie posters might soon be based on your clicks

You may have thought you left Blockbuster behind, but the basic way we browse movies hasn’t changed all that much. We peruse poster after poster, kind of like walking the aisles of a ‘90s-era video store. That one poster image, meant to appeal to as many people as possible, is often all we see before […]
