The drive-bys not only know nothing, they suspect nothing.
Welch is right that the Unemployment Index is a fraud but wrong that it is a fraud perpetrated by the people who produce it.
The unemployment index is calculated according to the rules provided to the people who compile it.
The fraud is the claim that the rules produce a number that is meaningful.
And the fraud is the rules keep changing. So not only is the magnitude of the number meaningless, the delta of the number over time is meaningless.
(What were doing, were corroding trust in our government in a way, )
The Obama administration has already destroyed what trust we had in Government Mr. Todd. The millions of American unemployed, under employed and those that have just plain given up, know that the Governments number are bullshit...
VP debate lefterator Martha Raddatz is a college dropout and pass-around slut for a number of lefties.
Chuck Todd had dropped his persona that he’s a fair reporter. He was UGLY this morning on Morning Joe....well, UGLIER than usual.
And let’s not forget Gwen Ifill, who works for publicly funded PBS, and who moderated the vice-presidential debate four years ago. She wrote a book on Barack Obama that was due to be publised on January 20, 2009. Yet she claimed no confilct of interest.
You’d think Martha would say to her boss, “hey, one of the candidates was at my wedding, so it would be a good idea to pick somebody else to moderate.” But that would take integrity. And in reality, the commission on presidential debates would not even try to find somebody to moderate a debate that was not a schill for the democrat party.
Chuck Todd is a former staffer to Senator Tom Harkin (D-Iowa).
