DNC Chair Denies Unemployment UP Under Obama (video)
If you believe something enough, say it enough, soon you begin to believe it--even if it's not true.
despite being confronted with the Government's OWN statistics over and over by a Fox News reporter, the Chairman of the Democratic National Committee, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, denies unemployment has risen under President Obama. See the video here from Real Clear Politics. In case you were curious, unemployment was about 7.6 percent during the transition from Bush to Obama. During Clinton, and Bush I terms it was below 6 percent. Bush -2- had it below 6, but it began to rise after the housing bubble and real estate thud. Obama? it has been hovering between 9.1 and 9.9. The recent drop to 8.6 is largely due to season Holiday jobs and thousands of people who's benefits ran out and have also stopped looking for work.
