60 Minutes Blows Team Obama’s 9.5% Unemployment Claim Out of the Water

Last night I watched the entire segment and couldn’t believe that Team Obama couldn’t manage to get this story spiked until after the election — possibly an indicator that their days of having the MSM on puppet strings have drawn to a close.

Obama keeps hanging his hat on the 9.5-ish percent unemployment rate, which is bad enough, but Scott Pelley reports why it’s “much worse” than that.

The story doesn’t directly link the massive economic woes to any politician in particular, and Obama would no doubt point to it and say “look what Bush did” and “imagine how bad it would have been if we hadn’t acted quickly” — but I’m sure this isn’t the kind of thing the Dems wanted to see mere days before an election.

The Dems are already facing an historic avalanche, and 60 Minutes just shoveled on some extra snow:

It makes liberal “Republican” Ah-nuld in Kahl-ee-fuah-knee-ah not come across as very competent either. Sad thing is, in spite of California’s woes, they’re still going to re-elect the likes of Barbara Boxer and probably Jerry Brown. What’s the definition of “insanity” again?

You can watch the entire segment here.
