Na fase final da campanha de 2012 (Setembro), os números do desemprego desceram, facilitando a vida a Obama e cravando o último prego no caixão da campanha de Romney, que ficou a instruir os Americanos sobre taxas de actividade e portanto perdeu uma grande bandeira de campanha.
O New York Post reporta agora que Julius Buckmon foi essencial nessa viravolta nos números. E não esteve sozinho. E já o tinha feito antes. E foi acusado e os processos não deram em nada. E que o processo continua até hoje.

Doublethink: When you hold two contradictory ideas in your head at the same time. Popularized by George Orwell in “1984” as the technique government uses to control the party loyals. An example: Obama claims that there is sufficient oversight of the NSA and he can vouch for the constitutionality of its actions. Obama also claims that he has absolutely no knowledge of the NSA’s doings and can’t be blamed for them. – via Laissez Faire Capitalism.
How we can win, por Daniel Greenfield.
Rep. Ron Paul, whose maverick presidential bids shook the GOP, said in the wake of this week’s elections that the country has already veered over the fiscal cliff and he sees no chance of righting ship in a country where too many people are dependent on government.
“We’re so far gone. We’re over the cliff,” the Texas Republican told Bloomberg Television’s “In the Loop” program. “We cannot get enough people in Congress in the next 5-10 years who will do wise things.” The video can be seen here.
Mr. Paul, who is retiring after 12 terms in the House, said voters on Tuesday rejected Mitt Romney because he had opposed the government bailout of General Motors and Chrysler.
“The people in the Midwest voted against him: ‘Oh, we have to be taken care of!’ So that vote was sort of like what we are laughing at in Greece,” Mr. Paul said.
“People do not want anything cut,” he said. “They want all the bailouts to come. They want the Fed to keep printing the money. And they don’t believe that we’ve gone off the cliff or are close to going off the cliff. They think we can patch it over, that we can somehow come up with some magic solution. But you can’t have a budgetary solution if you don’t change what the role of government should be. As long as you think we have to police the world and run this welfare state, all we are going to argue about is who will get the loot.”
