Figures Being Fudged And More 10/06/2012

Let’s think about this together.

The following tweet from Jack Welch is what started the damage control from the White House: “Unbelievable jobs numbers—these Chicago guys will do anything—can’t debate so change numbers.”

Former CEO of General Electric, Jack Welch, has raised the question of whether current unemployment numbers recently released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics [during the week of October 2nd] are valid. I believe his suspicions have grounds for discussion here.

The 7.8 % national unemployment figure for the nation has shady implications, even the leftover feeling that these numbers were put out there to lighten the blows Obama took by Romney during the first televised presidential debate.

Mr. Welch made the following points on MSNBC:

1) The economy has been growing at a snails pace of 1.3% annually.

2) To decrease national employment numbers from 8.3% of two months ago to the published numbers of 7.8% today, the economy would necessarily need an annual growth rate between 4-5%. Instead the economy is anemic.

Something is not right. The current unemployment figures given by the administration do not lineup with the growth numbers needed to reduce the unemployment rate by the .5 [five tenths] recorded in the last 2 months.

It’s crystal clear; the numbers are being fudged and the 1.3% annual growth rate is the real growth rate. Unfortunately, the math is pathetically real. These figures are being fudged because the election is weeks away. Don’t doubt that.

When Jack Welch was asked by Chris Matthews if there was proof to back up what he had tweeted about the nation’s current unemployment figures Jack said NO.

In an article written by Reuters, Jack Welch was quoted as saying: “These numbers just don’t go with the economic activity.” Welch said. “You draw your own conclusions.”

Most everyone wants to see economic activity pick up in the nation. Most everyone wants to see the employment rate honestly drop. Most everyone wants the nation to succeed as a whole, recognizing individual success as vital to national economic wealth and health. Most everyone wishes their electricity bill were lower.

Almost any US president would back Israel.  Most everyone recognizes that those who are self-employed or working otherwise, build what they have. Most everyone gives more than lip service to their country. Most everyone understands and recognizes these aspirations except Barack Obama and his socialist and Marxist friends.

Barack Obama wants this sluggish economy to drag on. This sets up many other things he wants to pass through Congress or by executive order. Barack Obama wants regulation upon regulation heaped upon businesses in this country, hence, a national economic recovery will remain weak as long as regulations continue to pile on.

This president thumbs his nose at Israel and its prime minister in their time of need in favor of an appearance on the David Letterman show and a campaign stop to raise money in Las Vegas.  He will not help our ally. He allows those from the Muslim Brotherhood [hostile Muslims to the US] to participate in the highest levels of the United States government. Why is this so?

This president, in my opinion, has violated his oath to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of The United States.”

This president told us long ago, that our electricity bills would “necessarily skyrocket.” They have.

This president prefers to “hang out” with celebrities. He plays excessive golf instead of governing. He takes extended vacations. He is trying to do regular things when, clearly, he doesn’t hold a regular job. He hasn’t grown up enough to govern the United States properly, therefore,”we gotta let em go,” as Clint Eastwood would say.

Because he hasn’t grown up enough, we, the people, have suffered enormously. We have suffered from his lack of understanding regarding the issues we face as a nation. He is very smart but he is arrogant and hauty. Many think of him as “cool.” He is not. He is slick but not cool. Who wants a “cool” president anyway?

If being “cool” becomes the primary focus and is a substitute for understanding the issues or protecting the country, forget it. That kind of approval Obama needs scares me.

I want a president who is grown up and can deal with the problems the United States has instead of hanging out with all those peoople he wants to be.

Barack Obama is ambivalent and aloof.  The nation has suffered not benefited from his personal traits. These traits may cause him to be likable but these traits do not register or measure competency, caring, ability to problem solve, decisiveness, etc.

Competency, caring, problem solving and decisiveness are key to being CEO of the greatest nation in the world. All of these are intangibles that Mitt Romney has, Barack Obama does not.

Who do you want for president? A problem solver or a procrastinator? One who grasps issues with a firm understanding of them or a president who casts them aside? A president who actually loves America or one who leaves “one nation under God” out of his recitation of the pledge of allegiance?  One who hangs out with celebrities like David Letterman or one who cares more about Israel? One who has a 25 year record in the private sector or one who has none?

Do you want a president who gathers all the proper information, weighs the actions which need to be taken and acts with clarity and decisiveness?  Or do you want a president who is more concerned about his public persona, and, therefore, delays solutions because of the consistent foggy cloud he has within him?

Do you want a president who understands the importance of this nation’s moral fiber or do you want one who will continue to weaken that fiber through non-action of his constitutional responsibilities?

What about the loud lady who went viral about voting for Obama because the president gave her a free phone?  Voting intelligently requires much more than just being promised a free phone from your president. Of course, most of us know that.

I want a president with proven accomplishments and clarity of vision. I want a leader I can follow through the darkness into the light. I want Mitt Romney.
