Campaign Magic 2012
Remember when President Obama said employment numbers were getting better and then right before the election in 2012 they did? A LOT better!
Some called it a miraculous drop in the unemployment rate from 8.1% in August 2012 to 7.8% in September, causing others, like GE CEO Jack Welch to say those numbers were too good to be true questioning their validity.
More skeptics followed questioning such a large drop at such an opportune time for the President. Of course they were attacked and vilified in the media and basically shrugged off as Obama haters or racists.
Well, now the truth is bubbling to the surface (as it always does sooner or later).
Just two years before the presidential election, the Census Bureau caught an employee fabricating data that went into the unemployment report, which is one of the most closely watched measures of the economy.
And a knowledgeable source says the deception went beyond that one employee — that it escalated at the time President Obama was seeking reelection in 2012 and continues today.
The Census employee caught faking the results is Julius Buckmon, according to confidential Census documents obtained by The Post. Buckmon said he was told to make up information by higher-ups at Census.
More is surely to come and more “higher-ups” implicated as the crap in Washington always flows up before it flows out.
