My statistics professor in college was fond of saying you can do, say or prove anything with statistics--and then proceeded to show us how to "massage the figures" so we could make any sort of claim--even one as preposterous as that of Obama. Rush Limbaugh predicted this a year or so ago, that just before the election the unemployment rate would be just below 8 percent. Looked at another way, it took this jug-eared empty suit NEARLY FOUR YEARS to move the unemployment rate to where it was when he took office. A miracle. Yeah, right.
