In response to DirtyWaterLover's comment:
Why would Ryan tell the world that he ran a marathon in the 2:50s when he ran one in 4:01? I'm sure that the last republican VP candidate having run a marathon faster the Ryan may have played in to it, but there has to be more to it.
It makes no sense to lie unless he's a compulsive liar and can't help himself. Of course that would be consident with all the other lies he's been telling everyone.
Isn't lying about your Marathon time considered pretty low in the running world?
It is probably not as bad as lying about creating 4 million jobs when the ACTUAL number is a pathetic 300,000
We all understand that in Jamal-land what's up is down.
According to BLS (yes, I understand that BLS is a federal Agency and subject to all of your wacko conspiracy theories), US Non-Farm employment at the end of Febraury 2009 was 131,314, 000. Non-Farm employment at the end of July 2012 was 132,868,000. That would be an increase of 1,554,000 jobs since Obama took Office.
The lowest level of employment during the Obama administration was in August 2009, with 129,719,000 jobs. this is considered the end of the recession and the beginning of the recovery. Since then, we've added 3,149, 000 jobs.
By the way, when Bush took office in February 2001, US non-Farm employment was 131,097,000. When he left office, it was 131,314, 000, a net loss of 217,000 jobs
