Figures. Obama Completely Wrong on Reason For High Unemployment Rate

And, you wonder why Barack Obama is the worst jobs president since the Great Depression?

He doesn’t even know where the jobs were lost.

Clue to Obama: It’s not the public sector employees who are suffering.

Jim Geraghty at The Campaign Spot reported:

CBS’s Mark Knoller, covering a town hall on the economy with the president this morning, reports: “President Obama blames high unemployment rate on ‘huge layoffs of government workers’ at federal, state and local levels.”

This is completely wrong. Extremely and mind-bogglingly wrong. Epically wrong… We are about 8 million away from the most recent peak in private-sector employment…. As you can see, in terms of total number of Americans employed in government, there has been no real discernible recession. In fact, the number has increased slightly.

It would probably help if the community organizer knew a little something about the current crisis.
