Now, an old buddy, we like this guy a lot here at the EIB Network, James Pethokoukis, he dabbles at Reuters. Somehow he snuck in there, and he does blog posts and writes columns. He's not a lib, let's put it that way. We didn't create a single job, and the unemployment rate dropped nevertheless, right, went from 9.2 to 9.1. Pethokoukis points out that the unemployment rate, if the labor force was as big as it was when Obama took office, would be 11.4%. The way they get this down to 9.1% is simply reduce the number of jobs in the universe, just arbitrarily.
What do you think?
Sounds like atmospheric extrapolation.

Not arbitrarily, but yes.
