Team Obama Cooked the Books with Unemployment Numbers One Month Before 2012 Election … Jack Welch Vindicated!!!
THE CHICAGO, ALINSKY WAY: “THEY WILL DO ANYTHING TO WIN” … WELCOME TO UNEMPLOYMENT-GATE!!!
Remember the skepticism by many when the remarkable coincidence occurred in the last reporting month prior to the 2012 Presidential election, when low and behold the unemployment numbers dropped from 7.1% to 7.8%? The numbers were hailed by Obama, his minions and an all to willing lap-dog media as the country’s economic situation was headed in the right direction and Obama’s policies were working. Just one problem, as reported in the New York Post, “The numbers were manipulated and the Census Bureau, which does the unemployment survey, knew it”. Why is this not a surprise from what has become one of the, if not the most corrupt and scandalous White House’s ever. It was not a shock to Jack Welch, who at the time questioned the numbers reported and basically called them flat out dishonest.
Jack Welch was attacked for his comments on the unemployment numbers … Watch the VIDEO below of Chris Matthews going after him. Welch would not take back what he said. Matthews asked for an apology. Looks like Mathews owes Jack Welch an apology.
In the home stretch of the 2012 presidential campaign, from August to September, the unemployment rate fell sharply — raising eyebrows from Wall Street to Washington.
The decline — from 8.1 percent in August to 7.8 percent in September — might not have been all it seemed. The numbers, according to a reliable source, were manipulated.
And the Census Bureau, which does the unemployment survey, knew it.
Just two years before the presidential election, the Census Bureau had caught an employee fabricating data that went into the unemployment report, which is one of the most closely watched measures of the economy.
And a knowledgeable source says the deception went beyond that one employee — that it escalated at the time President Obama was seeking reelection in 2012 and continues today.
“He’s not the only one,” said the source, who asked to remain anonymous for now but is willing to talk with the Labor Department and Congress if asked.
The Census employee caught faking the results is Julius Buckmon, according to confidential Census documents obtained by The Post. Buckmon told me in an interview this past weekend that he was told to make up information by higher-ups at Census.
The Gateway Pundit reminds us of Jack Welch’s tweet and the 873,000 jobs that were created. What a frigging joke. Just how corrupt is the Obama presidency? Hot Air also emphasizes an important point in that this is not just a political election issue, election issue, Crudele reminds his readers that investors make critical decisions based on BLS data and its reputation for integrity and so does the Federal Reserve. At this point Richard Nixon is looking like a Boy Scout compared to Barry O.
Look for all of Barack Obama poll numbers to hit the 30′s after this.
WAPO/ABC News Poll: Buyer’s Remourse – Mitt Romney Would Beat Barack Obama if the Presidential Election was Held Today, 49% to 45% … Poll Numbers in Free-Fall
DOES ANYONE REALLY WONDER WHY OBAMA LIED THRU HIS TEETH ON OBAMACARE AND YOU CAN KEEP YOUR INSURANCE PLAN IF YOU LIKED IT? DO YOU REALLY WONDER WHY THE MSM NEVER BOTHERED TO ASK QUESTIONS?
It is the great fraud perpetrated on the American People …
As reported at The Politico, there is more disastrous polling numbers for President Barack Obama as a recent WAPO-ABC News poll shows that if the 2012 presidential election was held today, Mitt Romney would beat Obama, 49% to 45% among registered voters. Talk about your “buyer’s remorse”. This is a much different outcome than the 2012 match-up where Obama beat Romney 51% to 47% to win a second term. My how times have changed. What a difference the truth makes. What a difference it makes when the MSM decides to actually report on the numerous scandals of the Obama White House.
Making matters worse for Obama, Independents go for Romney 49% to 39% over Obama.
The WAPO/ABC poll also has Barack Obama’s job approval rating at 42% approve, 55% disapprove.
As more bad poll numbers continue to pour in for President Barack Obama, a new survey finds that if the 2012 election matchup were held this month, Mitt Romney would hold the edge with the voters.
Romney topped Obama 49 percent to 45 percent among registered voters in the Washington Post-ABC News poll released Tuesday. Among all Americans, the 2012 rivals would be tied, at 47 percent.
Obama beat Romney 51 percent to 47 percent a year ago to win a second term.
The poll also found more bad news for Obama: His approval was down to 42 percent, a fall of 6 points from a month ago. Fifty-five percent disapproved.
Other ratings of the president’s performance have tumbled as well. He’s at career lows for being a strong leader, understanding the problems of average Americans and being honest and trustworthy – numerically under water on each of these (a first for the latter two). His rating for strong leadership is down by 15 points this year and a vast 31 points below its peak shortly after he took office. In a new gauge, just 41 percent rate him as a good manager; 56 percent think not.
This poll, produced for ABC by Langer Research Associates, finds that the president’s personal image has suffered alongside his professional ratings. Fewer than half, 46 percent, see him favorably overall, down 14 points this year to the fewest of his presidency. Fifty-two percent now view him unfavorably, a new high and a majority for the first time since he took office. It may matter: Personal popularity can provide a president with cushioning when the going gets rough. Losing it leaves the president more vulnerable.
ACA – Skepticism about the Affordable Care Act looks to be the driving force in Obama’s troubles. Americans by nearly 2-1, 63-33 percent, disapprove of his handling of implementation of the new health care law. And the public by 57-40 percent now opposes the law overall, its most negative rating to date, with opposition up by 8 points in the past month alone.
RCP Average Polling – Complete carnage, almost under 40% as an average.
EXIT QUESTION: How does everyone think that the 2012 Presidential, House and Senate elections would have turned out if IRS-gate was reported on, if Benghazi-gate had been reported on, if AP-gate had been reported on and if, Barack Obama had told the truth and said that 5-10 million individuals with private healthcare plans who liked their insurance would lose it? How about if he told those with employer insurance coverage would lose theirs as well and it would be worse? Hmm?
Mitt Romney Says “Fundamental Dishonesty” Over Obamcare Is ‘Rotting it Away” and “Put in Peril” Obama’s Second Term (VIDEO)
Barack Obama, ‘The Lying King’: Oh what tangled webs we weave, when we practice to deceive …
Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said Sunday on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’ that President Barack Obama’s “fundamental dishonesty” over his signature health care program, Obamacare, has “put in peril the whole foundation of his second term.” Romney went on to say that Barack Obama intentionally mislead the American people on the core elements of Obamacare. Romney went on to say that time again that fundamental to his plan was the right people would have to keep their insurance plan, and he knew that was not the case.
“Perhaps the most important lesson the president, I think, failed to learn was, you have to tell the American people the truth. When he told the American people that you could keep your health insurance if you wanted to keep that plan, period (VIDEO), he said that time and again, he wasn’t telling the truth. I think that fundamental dishonesty has really put in peril the whole foundation of his second term.”
“… but the key, I think, that has really undermined the president’s credibility in the hearts of the American people is that he went out as a centerpiece of his campaign and as a centerpiece of Obamacare over the last several years saying time and time again that fundamental to his plan was the right people would have to keep their insurance plan, and he knew that was not the case. He could know it by looking at Massachusetts and seeing people there lost insurance. He could have learned those lessons and told the people the truth, but he didn’t. he told people they could keep their plan. and, you know, it was NBC News that said, look, some 6 million people are going to lose their insurance. that’s not some little number, that’s 6 million American people.”
Last year’s losing Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said Sunday that President Barack Obama’s “fundamental dishonesty” on the Affordable Care Act has “put in peril the whole foundation of his second term.”
Appearing on NBC’s Meet the Press, Romney said Obama’s handling of Obamacare’s promises “has undermined the foundation of his second term – I think it is rotting it away.”
He added that what “has really undermined the president’s credibility in the hearts of the American people is that he went out, as a centerpiece of his campaign and as a centerpiece of Obamacare over the last several years, saying time and time again that fundamental to his plan was the right people would have to keep their insurance plan, and he knew that was not the case….”
He said “had the president been truthful and told the American people that millions would lose their insurance and millions more would see their premiums skyrocket… there would have been such a hue and cry against it, (that) it would not have passed.”

Franklin Graham Says the IRS Also Targeted the Reverand Billy Graham for Backing Conservative & Pro-Israel Candidates
Are you kidding, the IRS also targeted the Reverend Billy Graham …
It would appear that the IRS targeting was not just of Conservative Tea Party groups, as reported at the Politico, Franklin Graham says that the IRS also targeted the Reverend Billy Graham and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, the family’s international humanitarian organization Samaritan’s Purse. Unbelievable. This vindictive organization went after such a chartable organization that’s only purpose is to do good through out the world! So what would possibly be the reason why their 2010 tax records would be suddenly audited? The Reverend Billy Graham backed Mitt Romney in 2012 and also other Conservative and pro-Israel candidates. “We the People” are going to learn that this is only the tip of the iceberg and the “Gestapo” like actions of the IRS not only targeted organizations, but individuals as well and goes much higher than some rouge low level agents in Cincinnati, Ohio. Much, much higher.
The IRS came after Billy Graham, too, his son charged Tuesday in a letter to President Barack Obama.
Franklin Graham, the president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and the family’s international humanitarian organization Samaritan’s Purse, said that the IRS notified the organizations in September that it was conducting a “review” of their activities for tax year 2010.
With the IRS admitting it gave extra scrutiny to conservative political organizations, Graham says he now believes that the review was part of an Obama administration effort of “targeting and attempting to intimidate us.”
The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association urging of voters to back “candidates who base their decisions on biblical principles and support the nation of Israel” during last year’s presidential race was the reason why IRS agents visited the North Carolina offices of both Graham groups, the letter accuses.
While these audits not only wasted taxpayer money, they wasted money contributed by donors for ministry purposes as we had to spend precious resources servicing the IRS agents in our offices.”
The Reverend Billy Graham has worked with both Republican and Democrat presidents for decades. So why now? Why under Barack Onama does the IRS target him? The Gateway Pundit reminds us of when Franklin Graham spoke out against Barack Obama and could not categorically deny that he was a Muslim. You do not think that this thin-skinned president went after his enemies do you? Because he would never do such a thing. Oh that’s right, Obama also banned Franklin Graham from speaking at the Pentagon. Yup, no vindictiveness here. Sister Toldja is 100% correct, “Targeting political groups who oppose this administration’s agenda is bad enough, but targeting religious groups on similar grounds” goes beyond what can be deemed as acceptable.
What ever happened between “separation of Church and State”? IRS-gate is about to explode and the American people are going to be completely outraged when they find out that individuals were targeted as well. This is the same IRS that is supposed to police Obamacare. The people who have access of your insurance data and your private healthcare records. Boy, that gives me a warm fuzzy.
Mitt Romney Will Regret this for the Rest of his Life … The RNC Benghazi Ad that Never Ran “Benghazi 3 AM Phone Call” (VIDEO)
ABC News has reveled the RNC Benghazi ad that never ran during the 2012 Presidential election. According to accounts, RNC leadership approved the ad but it was spiked at the last minute because of objections from the Romney campaign. Brilliant move. They thought that it would distract from their message on the economy. HUH? What, the Romney campaign could not walk and chew gum at the same time? As stated at the American Spectator, so what if it distracted from the economic message, “Are you trying to win an election or not?” Of course hindsight is 20/20, but how can a candidate seeking election not go after a sitting president for such a debacle? Being president means handling domestic and foreign policy, not just the economy. When a president gets economic policy wrong, people lose their jobs, money and their homes. When a president gets foreign policy wrong, people lose their lives.
Watch VIDEO by clicking on above picture
It was the Benghazi attack ad the Republican National Committee created but never aired.
ABC News has obtained an ad the RNC made last fall and approved to air in the final weeks of the presidential campaign. The ad begins with a replay of Hillary Clinton’s famous “3 a.m. phone call” commercial from the 2008 campaign and then cuts to video of the burning U.S. consulate in Benghazi Libya.
Over the images of the attack–in which four Americans were killed–words appear on the screen:
“The Call Came … On September 12, 2012.” As the screen goes black, the words continue: “Security Requests Denied. Four Americans Dead. And an Administration whose story is still changing. The Call Came.”
Hot Air wonders whether this VIDEO will harm Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden in 2016?
How bad of a call was this by the Romney Team? The ad could be run today and still have meaning. That is how much of a screw up this was. What were these people thinking?
Mitt Romney Discussing the Sequester: “I see this as this huge opportunity, and it’s being squandered by politics … The hardest thing about losing is watching this golden moment slip away with politics.”
This morning in an exclusive interview on FOX News Sunday with Chris Wallace, Mitt Romney and Ann Romney for their first major interview since his November Presidential election loss. Romney stated that President Barack Obama and Congress missed an opportunity and have squandered an “almost once-in-generational opportunity for America to solve its fiscal problems.” Romney told Chris Wallace that it killed him not to be president finding solutions to the nation’s problems. Romney slapped at Obama for not leading or bring people together. Instead, Obama was playing politics. There probably are many people right now that wish Romney was president. However, all the US has to look forward to is four more years of the miserable same.
“I’ll look at what’s happening right now, I wish I were there,” Mitt Romney said. “It kills me not to be there, not to be in the White House doing what needs to be done. The president is the leader of the nation. The president brings people together, does the deals, does the trades, knocks the heads together; the president leads. And — and I don’t see that kind of — of leadership happening right now.”
From Bloomberg News:
That opportunity, Romney said in a “Fox News Sunday” interview was the combination of the expiration of Republican President George W. Bush’s income-tax cuts at the end of 2012 and the automatic spending cuts that went into effect March 1.
“I see this as this huge opportunity, and it’s being squandered by politics, by people who are more interested in a political victory than they are in doing what’s right for the country,” Romney said in the Fox interview. “And it’s very frustrating.”
“The hardest thing about losing is watching this, this critical moment, this golden moment, just slip away with politics,” Romney, who lost the 2012 election to President Obama, a Democrat, said.
Romney didn’t say what he would have done instead.
Obama “has the opportunity to lead the nation and to bring Republicans and Democrats together,” Romney said. “It’s a job he’s got to do and it’s a job only the president can do.”
Pack your bags Christie … you will never be the GOP presidential nominee.
RINO New Jersey Governor Chris Christie called Barack Obama to wish the president congrats on his 2012 reelection win; however, only emailed Romney on the loss. Nice. Maybe Christie puckered up some more to Obama? This from the man who claimed he backed Romney, yet bear hugged Obama and provided a false image that Obama was actually bi-partisan and that Obama was actually handling the Hurricane Sandy disaster properly. UNREAL.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said that he had called President Obama to congratulate him on his win in the 2012 presidential election — but has only sent an email to Mitt Romney, the Republican nominee for whom he campaigned heavily earlier this year.
“We didn’t have a political strategy discussion,” Christie said of his call to Obama, according to Bloomberg. “I said congratulations on your win last night Mr. President, he said thank you governor.”
Christie added that he had sent an email to Romney on Wednesday night.
As stated by Weasel Zippers, who would expect any less from Judas? Christie might as well change party affiliation as he will never get the Republican nomination after this “fox in the hen house” episode. This will never be forgotten. One of the reasons ultimately why Romney did not perform better was that he was too moderate for the GOP base. Christie is left of Romney no matter what comes out of his big mouth. Do not fret Lonely Conservative, those that vote to nominate a prez candidate will never, never vote for Christie after this.
Final POLITICO/George Washington University Battleground Tracking Poll has it a Dead Heat With Romney Winning Independents by 15 Points, Huh?
Weren’t we told by the MSM that this election would be won by which candidate won the Independent vote?
One of two things are true with the polls … 1) The pollsters/media have no idea what the outcome will be . 2) The pollsters/media do not want to tell America the truth that Romney is beating Obama.
Case in point, the final POLITICO/George Washington University Battleground tracking poll has the race between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama a dead heat, tied at 48%. At first glance one would say, well that’s par for the course. Many of the polls have it a tie or near tie, within the margin of error. Until one reads the following, Romney is winning Independents 15 points, 47% to 32%. Seriously, how is a poll tied if one candidate as a 15 point lead with Independents?
The presidential race is tied going into Election Day.
The final POLITICO/George Washington University Battleground Tracking Poll of 1,000 likely voters — conducted Sunday and Monday — shows Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama each claiming 47 percent nationally.
Our previous poll, conducted Monday through Thursday of last week, found the race tied at 48 percent. Although Romney and Obama have each led at times, the two candidates have stayed within the margin of error since the spring.
Independents break for Romney by 15 points, 47 percent to 32 percent.
Bill “the Truth” Clinton’s Obama Freudian Slip … “who wants a president who will knowingly, repeatedly tell you something he knows is not true?”
Who is the president who has been lying? Obama is The Lying King.
Did former president Bill Clinton just get a final dig into Barack Obama just before the election? Oh those Freudian slips as comments that can be taken in so many ways. Clinton asked Obama supporters in Philadelphia … “but who wants a president who will knowingly, repeatedly tell you something he knows is not true?” Hmm, you mean like all the 2008 Obama campaign lies? You mean like Obamacare will lower premium costs. Like Obama was going to cut the federal deficit in half? Like he was going to lower unemployment to 5%? Heck, America would just like an answer about Benghazi and Obama does not see fit to tell the truth.
Campaigning for President Barack Obama in Philadelphia on Monday afternoon, former President Bill Clinton struck a note of irony while attempting to criticize Mitt Romney’s campaign.
“You’re laughing, but who wants a president who will knowingly, repeatedly tell you something he knows is not true?” Clinton asked, after discounting a claim in a recent Romney ad that the Obama administration’s auto bailout hurt American workers.
“When I was a kid, if I got my hand caught in the cookie jar, where it wasn’t supposed to be, I turned red in my face, and I took my hand out of the cookie jar,” Clinton added.
Even more comical … Clinton calling anyone a liar who was nailed for perjury. Only Democrats have the cojones to make such comments.
