New York Post: Census "faked" 2012 election jobs report

Oh.

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.

Both the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Census conduct surveys to determine the unemployment rate, they both showed a matching drop before the 2012 election.  If there was a major discrepancy between the two it would not have slipped under the radar.  

 

This looks like nothing more than partisan BS, especially considering the source.

Of course the numbers was rig. Everyone knew that when they first came out. But Obama got re-elected anyway. Kind of a mute point now.

 

No everyone didn't "know" that.  Conservative partisans proclaimed it as fact over and over until they believed it, but that isn't the same thing at all.

Yeah this is old news.

Now it's time to continue to enjoy the Obamacare Rollout! Woot Woot!!!!!!!!!! :D

 

Move them goalposts, my friend.

 

You can be angry at Obama about real screwups like the rollout, without believing every imaginary scandal someone slings around.   You understand that, don't you?

Zoony said it, I didn't!

 

I think zoony was using Bengazi as an example of a made-up, non-existent, partisan driven scandal.  

 

And it was a perfect example.

 

You can think Obama is incompetent in getting his healthcare law implemented, without also believing that he wanted our Ambassador to Libya to die (or whatever the current version of the Benghazi "scandal" happens to be).

Agree that they did proclaim it as fact with little to no evidence. Of course funny thing now is it turns out they were correct (they just needed to wait a year for the evidence). Go figure.

Its pretty simple.

 

The Ambassador to Libya was Obama's cocaine dealer and secret gay lover when he was in college. Supposedly he was in possession of the infamous Michelle Obama "Whitey Tape" and was threatening to release it as black mail.
