Just saw on the morning news that US unemployment is now said to be 7.8%. I know it's probably old news but I only just came across it. Everyone knows their methods of calculating unemployment are a joke to start with. But this should be seen as an insult to the american public. How stupid do they think the population is? Anyone can see Barack(or the people who control Barack) are pulling the strings at probably the most important/crucial, point leading into the election.
I'm actually surprised they left the run so late on tweaking the figures. a gradual decrease of half percentage points over a few months would have been a lot less obvious. It's embarrassing.
