The 5.9% Unemployment Lie of Obama

It’s getting close to election time so you can be sure of two things: the rhetoric will heat UP and the unemployment rate will go DOWN. Like gasoline prices, you can pretty much tell when they will go up (just before the summer vacation driving season) and when they will go down (just after the summer vacation driving season).

Tuesday November 4, 2014 is mid-term election day and the official unemployment rate for September is down to 5.9%. And it took a pretty good jump too from a high of 6.7% in March to 6.1% in August. Now, Obama and the democrat party can crow about unemployment in the fives. Except there’s one slightly MASSIVE problem with that rate — it’s a lie.

Look at the this graph from Shadow Stats.com I will be calling your attention to this graph again.

Shadow Stats is a website devoted to exposing the lie about any economic recovery claimed by the government. The proprietor is a Mr. John Williams and he does NOT make this up. He gets his data straight from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The only difference is, he doesn’t put lipstick on this pig of the Obama Economy. Look at the graph again and you will notice two very telling things. The most obvious is that for as long as Obama has been in the White House, the unemployment rate has never fallen below 20%! So you can forget the taurusfimus from Obama’s apologists in the liberal press telling us that “recovery is right around the corner.” That must be one helluva corner because we’ve been going around it since 2010.

The other thing that is quite noticeable is the trend. The graph goes back 20 years to 1994. Look at the trend between the government lie of the official unemployment rate (the bottom track), the median rate (the middle track), and the actual unemployment rate (the upper track). You will notice that when Bill Clinton was lying about the unemployment rate in the 1990s, the government lie of the “official” unemployment rate track “paralleled” the true unemployment rate almost perfectly. In the year after 9-11 when Bush43 got tax rates cut that provided business with the stimulus of less money going to the government, the true unemployment rate went down again and the government lie “paralleled” it yet again. Even when the Bill Clinton-caused mortgage fiasco hit in 2007-2008, the rates again “paralleled” each other.

Then Obama happened — and something changed. Starting in 2009, the “official” government lie of the unemployment rate STOPPED “paralleling” the true unemployment rate and has slowly been creeping downward while the true unemployment rate has remained somewhere near 22-23 percent for Obama’s entire reign of error. This is NOT some accident of numbers. Someone didn’t fat-finger the numeric ten key on their keyboard for 5 years running. This was blatantly intentional! Yes, when Clinton and Bush43 lied about the unemployment rate it was also intentional. But their crime was to just understate the true unemployment rate by about 8%. NOT Obama! He is not understating anything. He is willfully misrepresenting the unemployment rate by a whopping 17%! As BigFurHat said on his blog I Own The World, “If the melanin shield erected around Obama by the progressive press was dropped, Obama would be considered the worst president in the history of our nation.”

When Carter’s unemployment rate was sky high, Ronald Reagan cared enough about those unemployed to actually work with the democrat majority in both the House and the Senate to get taxes cut and get the economy going. Barack Obama cares about no one except Barack Obama.

No, it IS Obama’s fault

This is a comment by Wraith left on this topic at IOwnTheWorld. The original post is from The People’s Cube. Some progtard took a picture of his poster of his eight reasons why he supports Obama.

I’m gonna slap the next person that whines about Obummer “inheriting” fill-in-the-blank from Bush. As if [the] dude was just standing around picking his nose and minding his own business, and we all came up and said, “You’re the President now. Fix all this.”

He wanted the job, he campaigned for it, he swore that the seas were going to recede and the planet was going to heal and free beer would fall from the sky and nothing bad would ever happen to anyone ever again, if only we elected him. Well, he got it — and he therefore owns the clusterfuck this country’s turned into under his pathetic and traitorous excuse for “leadership.”

But I shouldn’t be surprised that Obamanoids are still trying to blame everyone else but the responsible party. After all, that’s the core of Leftist thought.

So the next time some mongoloid liberal stops dragging his knuckles, starts scratching his ass, and says, “Our messiah inherited this from Bush,” you can answer him with Wraith’s statement above.

Thank you, Wraith. The perfect answer to when the liberal douchebags blame anyone other than Obama.
