View Full Version : Outrageous: Labor Department May Delay Jobs Report
This morning on a campaign conference call, Obama chief strategist David Axelrod pre-spun the release of the upcoming Friday jobs report. According to some reports, Axelrod predicted the numbers would not give Romney a boost (https://twitter.com/POLITICO2012/status/262935289855619072). There was also a prediction released by a major pollster today that predicted a bad jobs report could be a game-changer and tip the race to Romney decisively (http://dyn.politico.com/printstory.cfm?uuid=F45B689D-DC5F-4730-B33D-5F52BFBB54A8). And then what happened…? Well, lo and behold, the U.S. Labor Department releases a statement stating the hurricane might delay the release of the jobs report (http://blogs.wsj.com/economics/2012/10/29/labor-department-may-delay-jobs-report/)...............
the weather sure didn't delay the release of economic numbers this morning. And DC is closed.
Brought to you by the administrations whose motto is "Let no good crisis go to waste"
Judging by past instances....haven't we all learned that the words that follow the phrase "Axelrod has predicted..." are 99.99% horse puckey?
So I would not put much stock in what Axelrod "predicts." The worst weatherman on tv is ten times better at predicting what will happen than David Axelrod! LOL
In fact, if he is blowing the numbers off...chances are this is being done to downplay the numbers which are probably not very good at all. You know damn well that if the numbers were good, Axelrod and the other Obama cheerleaders would plaster them everywhere 24-7 in a sad attempt to prop up their boy.
They KNOW the numbers are s*** and are going to use the weather as a smokescreen or excuse to delay their announcement. If they can....they...along with big media...will try to "hide" them until after the election.
This is only the beginning of the trickery we will be seeing from these hucksters in the next few weeks. You wait...this will seem like small stuff in a matter of days.
Non-partisan US Labor Department.
Their credibility has cratered along with their "wrong" statistics repeatedly "corrected" on Friday evenings.
They have become tools.
I don't see the big deal. They could just as easily have released cooked numbers "on time". It's not going to matter one way or the other anyway.
