Time to Celebrate Obama’s Unemployment Drop!!!

Posted on December 8, 2011


December 2nd – You work for a company that employs 100 people. During flu season 9 have come down with the bug. So 9% of the employees have the flu, right? But what if one of those 9 died? Instead of 9 out of 100, the flu rate would be 8 out of 99 or “only” 8.1%. Doubt your company would throw a party. November’s unemployment rate fell from 9.0 to 8.6%. Will the media focus on the 315,000 who dropped out? Or on the fact that if the labor force was the same size as when O took office the rate would be 11%? Pretty shrewd re-election strategy: 1) Get enough people to give up 2) Celebrate unemployment drop 3) Sing “Happy Days Are Here Again”
