The third quarter GDP report claimed an unbelievably large increase of 3.1%, which was used as evidence of Obama’s alleged economic success. If that last report before the election was for whatever reason inflated, then it would make sense that at least the 4th quarter report would come in “unexpectedly” low (with any economic growth having already been reported just in time for the final campaign push). I’m wondering if the economic reports are as fraudulent as everything else from our community-organizer-in-chief, a composite of real jobs growth and expected eventual improvements.
The key words being "unbelievably large". The purported growth was unbelievable because it was the result of cooked books and was, in no way, real.
