President Obama's team slams
critics of new unemployment
statistics as 'lunatics'

New York Daily News, by Tracy Connor

President Obama’s advisers attacked critics for suggesting the White House fudged jobs figures, comparing them to “lunatic” birthers. The sub-8% unemployment stats were released by the non-partisan Bureau of Labor Statistics Friday, but former GE chief Jack Welch and several Tea Party figures claimed the numbers were cooked. Obama campaign senior adviser Robert Gibbs called such comments “incredibly dangerous” and said Welch had embarrassed himself. “There's a number of people that believe the real unemployment report is somewhere in a safe in Nairobi with the president's Kenyan birth certificate," Gibbs said sarcastically on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday.

Question the sharpest employment gain in 29 years just ahead of election and get called a lunatic. Don't dare question the king!

I question the methodology. I also question the sudden embrace of the household survey. No one cared about the household survey in July when it showed a loss of 195,000 jobs or August when it showed a loss of 120,000 jobs. 7.8% is a load of bs. Only those who work in bs for a living can justify it.

The lunatics calling the normal people crazy... How Alinsky-ish of them. What percentage of Democrats believe that 9/11 was an inside job of the US Govt? I can't remember but it was somewhere between 30 and 40% of Dems.

A number of highly respected economists and other astute individuals have publicly stated the new figure could not have been reached without "Cooking the books", That could hardly be described as lunacy.

If all these newly found workers were really working why did the GDP drop.

It's the old story, figures don't lie but liars figure.

The O administration is so filled with liars no one can believe a word they say.

Name calling is not required if one is right on the substance of the argument.

It is, in fact, an admission of guilt.

Stay classy, Bob.

The BLS is in bed with the Mulatto Kid and the liars in the administration. They have all drunk the Kool-Aid in order to keep their jobs.

I don't believe the numbers; I don't believe the administration and their bumblers; and I certainly don't believe the lying statistics.

So suspicious when it all comes out just before the election.

It took 525,000 part time jobs appearring from nowhere to push unemployment down.

Should we even be counting part-time jobs the same as full time jobs?

Sneering and sarcasm are ad hominem attacks upon skeptics that neither address the actual issue nor reflect credit upon those who resort to such childish tactics. It is certainly not irrational to be skeptical of information dispensed by the Obama administration, particularly in the context of a close election.

U-16 unemployment rate (unemployed + those working part time for lack of full time jobs) remained unchanged at 14.7%, average wages up a miniscule 1.8% in last 12 months, 2012 GDP growth to be lowest in 3 years and median household incomes down by $4,000, to barely $50,000. Yet we're the lunatics? We will be if we vote for more BO.

Since 1960 only two times in history has UE dropped by 5 points in a two month span.

First was 1984 with Reagan (May & June) - rate went from 7.7 to 7.2. Total jobs created during 2 month span was 680k. GDP for recent quarter was 8%.

Only other time (in over 50 years) is right now with Obama (Aug & Sep) - rate went from 8.3 to 7.8 (30 days to go before election). Total jobs created during 2 month span was 250k. GDP for recent quarter is 1.25%.

But we are lunatics. Riiiiiight.

I just can not wait to see the drop in people on food stamps due to the addition of these glorious jobs. /s

The food stamp program has doubled in size since 2008 and quadrupled since 2001. Spending on food stamps alone is projected to reach $770 billion over the next decade, according to the minority side of the Senate Budget Committee.

October 29 there should be a Hunter's Moon, I will be sure to express my 'lunatic' feelings shortly afterward, on Nov. 6, by voting for a change in leadership to appease Comrade Gibbs' astute observations.

Argentina´s National Institute for Agricultural Technology (INTA) has invented a way to convert cow flatulence into usable energy, and it involves putting a plastic backpack on a cow. Livestock are responsible for a remarkable amount of global methane emissions, which are a major cause of global warming. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, cow flatulence and burping, accounts for 5.5 million metric tons of methane per year in the United States, that´s 20% of total US methane emissions.

Nobel Prize-winning novelist Gabriel Garcia Marquez, who was praised as the most popular Spanish writer since Cervantes, died today in Mexico City at the age of 87. Garcia Marquez, a former journalist who was born in Colombia but lived in Mexico for more than 30 years, is best known for his 1967 masterpiece, the epic, hallucinatory novel One Hundred Years of Solitude, about the trials and tribulations of one family over several generations. Widely taught in college, it has sold about 50 million copies in more than 25 languages. His other novels include Autumn of the Patriarch (1975), about a pathological fascist

India´s Supreme Court has created an official third sex for its transgender eunuchs and announced they will have a quota of government jobs and college places to help them overcome discrimination. The decision was met with jubilation by transgender charities who said it was a milestone in their fight against marginalisation in Indian society. "We are elated and thankful to the court," said Kalki Subramanium, a leading transgender rights activist. "The decision has come after a century of suppression and marginalisation by the legal and social systems. "This verdict is certainly landmark and a new beginning.

At least 12 people are dead and more than 2,000 homes have been destroyed by a large fire that wreaked havoc over the weekend in Valparaiso, Chile. Some 10,000 people have been forced to evacuate parts of the port city. Government spokesman Álvaro Elizalde says those figures are likely to go up as the fire continues to burn. The fire has been driven by strong winds, and efforts to fight the flames also have been complicated by the area´s steep terrain and lack of essential infrastructure, as NPR´s Lourdes Garcia-Navarro reports for our Newscast unit.

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
