Obama omnishambles II...

Well, really it's part 600, or DC in Roman numerals. When it rains it pours: the scandal ridden remains of hope and change takes another dive. The BLS, (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics) instead of being known as the Bureau Of Lies And Subterfuge will soon just be BS...and stinking to high heaven. The October 2012 pre-POTUS election jobs figures - roundly questioned at the time (but the 'conspiracy theorists' were shouted down) - was 'faked'.
"The decline - from 8.1 percent in August to 7.8 percent in September - might not have been all it seemed. The numbers, according to a reliable source, were manipulated...And the Census Bureau, which does the unemployment survey, knew it."
[source NYP, hat-tip: Zero Hedge] The image, click to enlarge, 'The Strangest Number' (the data-set showing employment of workers in the 20-24 yrs old) was just one of the indicators back then that something was amiss.

Update 1:50 pm: of course back then there were one or two things that the electorate needed distracting from and lying about the recovery was a sure way to do that.
