Limbaugh: 5.9 Percent Unemployment Rate Is ‘Illegitimate’
As we have seen time after time, conservatives are truly anguished by good news. They threw a hissy fit when Osama bin Laden was killed. And now that the unemployment rate has fallen to 5.9%, they’re foaming at the mouth again. Is the economy really improving with Obama in the White House? Rush Limbaugh is having none of it.
Limbaugh doesn’t believe the unemployment rate dipped below 8% in 2012. He told his radio audience today that the current 5.9% rate is as illegitimate as the 2012 figure. “This today is just as illegitimate. This 5.9% number is even more illegitimate than the 7.9% number. There’s no way that this country has an economy producing jobs with an unemployment rate of 5.9%. It just isn’t happening . . . It isn’t real.”[su_csky_ad]
