Does any of this surprise anyone? The Obama BLS has been using statistical trickery to steadily lower the unemployment rate for months, without actually adding, you know, jobs. From ushering millions out of the workforce and onto the SSI rolls after their unemployment benefits expired, to classifying all sorts of non-work as "work", to invoking 600,000 mysterious part-time jobs, to excluding a whole state in the national unemployment figures. All in order to create the illusion of an improving job market at a time when workers are leaving the work force in droves.
