Florida Rep. Allen West, making the link whilst jousting on CNBC this afternoon over his claim that today's jobs reports numbers were manipulated by the White House to show a lower unemployment rate.
"Don't challenge my intelligence, because -- I tell you -- it wasn't too long ago that we were being told that a video was the impetus for this spontaneous attack that ended up killing an ambassador, so there are a lot of questions that come out of this administration.
I'm not talking about impeachment, I just want someone to come clean with the process and methodology, because there are a lot of inconsistencies."
Here's my thing with all this -- if you really thought the Administration was cooking things, why not cook it the day after the Democratic convention? Can you imagine the bounce off Convention plus 7.8% Unemployment Rate?
But instead it was a very bleak report that Friday which brought, as CNN wrote then, an "end to Democrats' convention high."
Earlier today, West took to Facebook to make the initial charge.
I agree with former GE CEO Jack Welch, Chicago style politics is at work here. Somehow by manipulation of data we are all of a sudden below 8 percent unemployment, a month from the Presidential election. This is Orwellian to say the least and representative of Saul Alinsky tactics from the book "Rules for Radicals"- a must read for all who want to know how the left strategize . Trust the Obama administration? Sure, and the spontaneous reaction to a video caused the death of our Ambassador......and pigs fly.
