Everybody realizes that amid Obama’s presidency, employments/monetary numbers were continually distorted to influence him to look great. Advantageously, vital metrics were overlooked by his attendants in the Labor Department as well as by his lapdogs in the media, who should examine these sorts of things. Things like labor participation rate and tallying the people that have stopped looking for work by and large would have caused the joblessness number to soar.
Yet, Obama and the Left couldn’t have that.
So they lied, consistently, concealing the genuine strength of our economy and the dismal substances that accompany conceding the certainties about work metrics.
Egotistically, the president bragged about his job numbers, advising his critics to check for themselves.
All things considered, many have, and the numbers demonstrate his pundits were more than correct.
As detailed at Yes I’m Right, after Trump won the election and organizations started promising to return and keep jobs in the US, Josh Earnest, Obama’s press secretary, reduced Trump’s pre-presidential triumphs, saying:
“There were 805,000 manufacturing jobs that were not just protected, but actually created while President Obama was in office.”
A bold claim, and a complete lie.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, before Obama’s disastrous presidency began in 2009, there were 12.561 million manufacturing jobs in the US.
As of November 2016, that number had fallen to 12.26 million jobs.
Which, as indicated by the laws of first-grade arithmetic, would imply that more than 300,000 assembling discounted were lost amid his administration.
The inquiry at that point turns out to be: How on earth did Josh “Not really” Earnest thought of such a ludicrous number?
Indeed, he did what the Left dependably does, by winding and twisting things to fit the story.
His strategy was unfortunately unscrupulous, as he just glanced back at Obama’s 8 years in office and found the point where producing jobs were at their lowest, which was in 2010 at 11.453 million.
That is where he began counting jobs “created” by Obama after the president’s garbage policies had effectively shaved off 1.1 million jobs.
This sort of mysterious bookkeeping is the thing that the Left’s about and why you ought to never believe any numbers that originate from the Left, or truly, any government official so far as that is concerned.
