The jobless numbers don't add up.

My personal opinion is that the numbers are not an outright fabrication. Oh sure they fudged the numbers but they did so by using only rosy assumptions when they had to make assumptions.

The jobless numbers during this presidency have a tendency to be revised upward a month or two after their initial report. I expect this one to be revised upward too - perhaps by a bit more than usual. But I expect the bean counters will have picked defensible if not terribly realistic assumptions.
