If Obama or Romney actually did fix the economy, half the country would never give the guy credit for it. People have basically become slaves to their political party.
There is not "so much hate between the two sides over things like this."
Call it what it is--unhinged lunacy by the right.
A report was released--a report released every month--that contains jobs stats and an unemployment rate based on a specific formula. This formula--followed for years--accounts for the most recent job info and makes corrections to data on prior recent reports.
IT IS THE SAME PROCEDURE EVERY TIME. But the right doesn't like this month's report, so they come up with reasons it doesn't count. It is one side acting idiotic here.
