    Obama adviser: Jobless rate is really 8.254%

    The White House is really getting specific when it comes to the unemployment rate.
    Rather than 8.3% -- the rounded-up figure -- Obama economic adviser Alan Krueger writes on the White House website that the real jobless rate is 8.254%.

    WOW no wonder he doesnt talk about his record.....It suck, suck, sucks........he's quibbling with hundreths of a percent....DESPERATE!!!!!!

    What's really funny is that even with those numbers your lame ass choice is still behind in the polls.

    As Moody's notes, when one avoids this rounding error, the resultant change in unemployment is not statistically significant (https://twitter.com/dismalscientist/status/231382842632978433).
