Obama Lied about the Unemployment Numbers before the 2012 Election? More GOP Conspiracy Theories.

While Republicans know they have a short window to make hay about the HealthCare.gov web site, they're gearing up a new conspiracy theory; Obama lied about the unemployment numbers just before his reelection. "Obama lied" is an easy meme to push for a party reliving the confederacy.

It's more insanity, and another welcome embarrassment showcasing the condition of the current Republican Party. I just wish Democrats would stop trying to help them change.

He's lied about everything else. Why would this be so hard to believe? Have you been checking the U6 number? Or looked at any of John Williams work?

Many predicted they would get it below 8% right before the election. Maybe that's why Hilda Solis is no longer there. She never had any credibility.

If you believe any of their numbers in the first place, I have a bridge to sell you in Brooklyn.

It's not a theory if it's true. That's just a derogatory term someone came up with to criticize free thinkers.

Denial is the most predictable of all human behaviors.

Funny how those numbers mean nothing during Republican administrations.

Do you see what you're doing? Denial. You really do have a problem with our first black president, the outlier.

You seem to have a problem with the party that isn't yours. Your party, where you store your identity and defend your insecurities.

You aren't a "free thinker." You're an excuse maker and someone who would rationalize anything to make your case.

Good luck dealing with your demons.
