And the usual “secret sauce” was liberally applied to the BLS “revisions” of the Nov. and Dec. numbers to get the 2012 total to 2.2 million jobs created....at least on paper.

No one but the ObamaBots believes this tripe.

The shell game is obvious. When Obama needs a low unemployment rate for an election, # of jobs created is suppressed to reduce the workforce, thus decreasing the percentage... in other words decrease the denominator.

When Obama needs a job growth numbers for a SOTU address, the number of jobs are increased driving the unemployment number back up.

The press helps Obama by reporting... well job growth was slow, but unemployment is down. Then when the shell game is played, the press reports, unemployment is up, but look at all the jobs added...
