President Obama's team slams critics of new unemployment statistics as 'lunatics'
New York Daily News ^ | 10/06/12 | Tracy Connor

Posted on 10/07/2012 1:17:38 PM PDT by Nachum

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.

We are to believe Obie wouldn’t apply pressures to fudge the numbers ? (find 400K jobs somewhere, dammit Hilda)

From a guy who is bullying defense contractors to break the law about upcoming layoffs, saying he’ll pay their fines if they’ll just stop reminding the workers/voters they’re about to lose their jobs in January ?????

Puulllleeeeaaassseee. You really do think we’re stoopid.

Thanks, Nachum.

There are very few people that I’m looking forward to rotting in Hell, but I think Robert Gibbs is one of those few people. The guy knows the truth but he lies just like his Father. I think he won’t find the lies and death so fun when he gets it back every bit as much as he gives it out.

Looks like there’s probably not going to be any justice for these crooks in this life since this world is about 1 mm away from being run the same way as Hell itself, but one Day they will all bow before the truth, and I’m really looking forward to that Day.

Their hearts are so hardened there’s little to no chance of repentance, any more. Especially since they shut out, mock, and destroy any bearer of truth who comes their way. They will learn that God is not mocked, but only when it is already too late for them. Fools.

This is not surprising.

Liberalism appeals only to the emotions, not to the rational mind.

So critics are dismissed with emotional accusations...not logic. Coservative, rational thought is either a lie or it is crazy (to a well-conditioned liberal).

Bottom line: forget winning the liberal vote and focus solely on conservatives and independents.

Liberals have become intellectual zombies.

I hope there is a dramatic correction in the unemployment rate next month which will move the numbers back up where they should be. The black cloud is look who controls the numbers and stats.

Clearly all the inhabitants of Connecticut are lunatics. The results of the WTIC CBS Poll prove it beyond a doubt:

Question: "According To The U.S. Department Of Labor, The Unemployment Rate Dropped To 7.8 Percent In September. Is This A True Reading Of The Jobs Picture?"

Yes. There's A Recovery Underway 0.95%
No. Someone's "Cooking The Books" 99.05%

Romney needs to send a back channel message to the nose pickers at BLS that there are plenty of cells available at the Federal Penitentiary in Bloody Butte, Montana for felon data fudgers after he wins the Presidency.

The next report would probably then hew closer to the truth.

Anybody who dabbles in those new-fangled fads and parlor tricks known as “Logic” or “Mathematics” is automatically both dangerous and a lunatic.

And no fair looking back in history and trying to compare what is going on now with what happened then. There is obviously NO precedent that can adequately report the situation as it stands today.

Al Gore described the new methodology just about perfectly when he made his “what’s up should be down, and what’s down should be up” speech back in the 1992 campaign.

It is only necessary to reformulate the facts to fit the new paradigm.

Obama Campaign Adviser David Axelrod: Mentored By Marxists

The next time you see David Axelrod on TV or listen to him on a radio talk show defending Obama, remember who he is – and why he’s a clear and present danger to our freedoms.

Obama adviser Axelrod grew up in a home with a mother who worked for PM – a paper used by Stalinists in New York to push the political agenda of the U.S.S.R.

In the mid-1970s, Axelrod was noticed by David Canter and Don Rose. Canter’s father was a lifelong Communist who was invited to visit the Soviet Union in 1932.

Rose was a member of the National Mobilization Committee to End the War in Vietnam – a Communist front group – and worked for the Students for a Democratic Society – another Communist organization.

Canter and Rose mentored Axelrod to become a ruthless political operative – but they first helped him become a political writer for the Chicago Tribune – a move that launched his career.

Axelrod has since become an unprincipled political hatchet man who has a well-known reputation for being “ferocious,” and who uses “venom” to attack his political opponents. Others have described him as using “brass knuckles” to “bludgeon” his foes. After all, it’s the Chicago Way of politics.  

When Obama ran for the Senate in 2004, Axelrod served as his chief advisor. Obama brags that he and Axelrod “share a basic worldview.” Axelrod agrees: “He’s not just a client. He’s a very good friend of mine. We share a worldview.”

Robert Coleman Gibbs, worked in the Auburn University library system and involved their son in politics at an early age. Nancy Gibbs would take Robert, then known as “Bobby,” to local League of Women Voters meetings rather than hire a babysitter, and involved him in “voter re-identification” work at the county courthouse.

Gibbs is a political whore...

Early in the 2004 presidential campaign, Gibbs was the press secretary of Democratic candidate Senator John Kerry. On November 11, 2003, Gibbs resigned “in reaction to the firing of Jim Jordan, abruptly let go by Kerry Sunday night.” Gibbs was replaced by Stephanie Cutter, a former spokeswoman for Ted Kennedy. After leaving the Kerry campaign, Gibbs became spokesman for a 527 political group formed to stop the 2004 presidential campaign of Howard Dean which launched attack ads against Dean. Gibbs was criticized in February 2007, during the Obama Presidential campaign, by some left leaning bloggers.

The appointment of Gibbs by Obama to the post of communications chief was met with mild controversy by some critics in the Democratic National Committee, who cited Gibbs’ role in the aggressive campaign tactics used to block the nomination of Howard Dean in the 2004 race. Obama, however, referred to Gibbs as his “one-person Southern focus group”

In an interview with The Hill, Gibbs derided the “professional left” and “liberals,” who “wouldn’t be satisfied if Dennis Kucinich was president.” He said that people who compare Obama’s policies to George W. Bush’s “ought to be drug tested.”

The latest BLS unemployment stats are obviously manipulated, inaccurate, and can’t hold up under logical analysis. By equating criticism about these stats with skepticism about Obama’s birth narrative, Robert Gibbs reveals, yet again, that he knows the birth story is somehow bogus. Both serve his cause as the “noble truth” (i.e., a lie told for the greater good). Professional liars need to be sharper than this.

Even Bob Woodward, of Watergate fame, was on TV questioning the jobs report. He said that all administrations massage the statistics in their favor, but that the real problem with Obama is that he has no plan to any real solution, no way forward.

Heh, heh, isn’t Obama’s campaign slogan, “Forward?” The slogan should be, “No way Forward.” “Get used to it”

The lunatics are the people who expect us to believe those numbers. They would have to have added over 800,000 new jobs for the unemployment rate to have changed that much.

Obama isn’t very good at math and doesn’t expect the rest of us to be either. We are just supposed to believe every lie that comes out of his mouth without question.

Screw him and his butt kissers!
