DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Unemployment Didn’t Go up Under Obama. YOU LIE!


What good is a message if its a complete and total lie? Is this really what Democrats are going to run on in 2012?

Yesterday DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz went on Fox & Friends and lied through her teeth. While spewing her Obama, Democrat talking points she stated, “Unemployment didn’t go up under Obama!” Watch the VIDEO below and meet the Baghdad Bob of the Democrat party.

A note to the DNC, Debbie and Barack, unemployment is not going down because people are getting jobs, its going down because people have given up looking for them. Its hardly because of any jobs that Obama has provided in his wasteful government spending and stimulus plans.

The following from Hot Air are the facts that Debbie Wasserman Schultz seems to have trouble comprehending. Or is it that it does not fit her narrative?

Here are a few facts that seem to have gotten past Wasserman Shultz as the head of a major political party, and as a member of Congress:
•Jobless rate in January 2009: 7.8%.  Jobless rate in November 2011: 8.6%.
•Number of employed in January 2009, in thousands: 133,563.  In November 2011: 131,708
•Civilian participation rate in January 2009: 65.7%.  In November 2011: 64.0%
•Unemployment level in January 2009, in thousands: 11,984.  In November 2011: 13,303
•Number of people not in labor force, January 2009, in thousands: 80,554.  In November 2011: 86,558

Let’s stop the fuzzy math. The unemployment rate is not 8.6%, as stated at the Lonely Conservative, unemployment is 11% if you count those who gave up in despair. Stop the madness if anyone actually thinks that the job situation is getting better. A lower unemployment number has nothing to do with job creation when only 100K jobs are created in a month. Via the the Financial Times comes the following:

According to government statistics, if the same number of people were seeking work today as in 2007, the jobless rate would be 11 per cent. Some have moved from claiming unemployment benefits to disability benefits, and have thus permanently dropped out of the labour force. Others have fallen back on the charity of relatives. Others still have ended up in prison.

      Well, it’s kind of true. It didn’t ‘go up’, it skyrocketed up!

      Schultz must be remembering her time on her favorite street corner as employment. she sold her soul to the demoncrats and will go down with them.

      In the US in 2009 there were 2,886,200 millionares. In 2010 there were 3,104,000 millionares. A growth rate of 8.3% That’s 217,800 new millionares. It could be that these newly rich have dropped out, no longer bother with unemployment and just spend their day rolling around in a bed full of money. They must have taken the GOP’s advice and pulled themselves up by the bootstraps on the boots they bought with them giverment checks. What a country!
      SM: There is some convoluted logic for ya.

      So you are hateful and jealous that people succeed in life? Boy, you are a real piece of work.
