Obama Uses Black Magic To Revise Unemployment Rate!

I love all of the right wing pundits on the web that have their knickers in a twist over the new jobs numbers/unemployment rate! So when the news is bad for Obama, even if the source is sketchy, it is gospel! However, when the news favors him, it is WITCHCRAFT!!!!
Oh, right wing pundits......you so crazy!!

"I don't know how Buzzfeed does it, but after the new jobs report came out, showing unemployment ticking down to 7.8 percent, the site quickly collected tweets from Obama critics who don't believe the numbers. There's the usual parade of kookery, echoed by Fox News's Stuart Varney, who claims that there's "widespread distrust of this report." ("Widespread" is almost as good as "some people are saying," as far as weasel terms go.) The only talker who surprises is Jack Welch.
"Unbelievable jobs numbers... these Chicago guys will do anything... can't debate so change numbers."
