Remember when Sean Hannity straight-up lied during his radio show that the economy was losing 400,000 jobs a month, thus Obama didn’t deserve re-election? At the time, the Congressional Budget Office actually presented numbers that between 200,000 and 1.5 million jobs had been created by the stimulus in the first quarter of 2010. Along those same lines, today we learn from a report issued by the Labor Department that:
…total non-farm payrolls stood at 133.686 million jobs in August, up from 133.561 million in January 2009, when Obama’s first term began. In other words, 125,000 jobs have been created, in total, during Obama’s first term, compared with a prior estimate of a loss of 261,000.
This also means that Romney’s claim of a net job loss during Obama’s term is out the window. What will he resort to now?
