Rmoney: "He said that by now we'd have unemployment at 5.4%." WTF? [View all]

WTF? Did anybody else hear this last night? I haven't read anything about anywhere from anybody, so I checked the transcript to be sure. Yep. He said O said it would be 5.4 percent.

Wasn't the magic number 8 percent? Rmoney hammered that number over and over. Now that unemployment is below 8 percent, it appears Rmoney has changed the magic number.

Excerpt:

He said that by now we'd have unemployment at 5.4 percent. The
difference between where it is and 5.4 percent is 9 million Americans
without work.

I wasn't the one that said 5.4 percent. This was the president's
plan. Didn't get there.
