Friday’s news that unemployment in the U.S. had fallen to 7.8%, below 8% for the first time in 48 months was greeted enthusiastically — unless you’re a rightwing Republican who is the former CEO of General Electric.
76-year old Jack Welch immediately tweeted the 7.8% number was manipulated by a shadowy group of backroom political operatives in Chicago to makeup for President Obama’s horrendous debate performance last Wednesday.
Folks, either Welch has early onset Alzheimer disease or he’s been watching too much FOX News.
In either case, here’s the tweet for you to see:
Unbelievable jobs numbers..these Chicago guys will do anything..can't debate so change numbers—
