29. I don't think the Jobs report from the BLS is accurate

and it hasn't been accurate since Raygun said he wanted to count all the military as employed on the BLS.

Clinton excluded areas of extreme poverty from the jobs survey

And the bushes played with it so much that they couldn't see the crash coming until it was inevitable even though people were being laid off left and right.

Obama has NOT corrected the sins of the past and he's done some strange things with the total civilian labor force numbers.

So, I truly believe the unemployment numbers are NOT an accurate indicator of how many people are unemployed in the US.

That said, Obama is no better and no worse than previous presidents in manipulating the numbers.

Romney is just ignoring all the manipulation by his own party and is dumping it on Obama.
