Via Infinito: Isn't this a repeat? How many unemployment numbers followup stories are we going to get?
JerseyTim: He has every right to be suspicious. Top business leaders had been colluding to keep unemployment high by not hiring. This flys in the face of their efforts.

Slives: There is another side to this story. They want the numbers to look bad for Obama so that once Romney gets elected they can spend the next couple of months padding their numbers and it gives them the ability to say, "Look at how much the economy jumped as soon as the election happened. This proves that businesses were just holding back in fear of Obama's policies."
Bonkthat_Again: Jack Welch is single handedly responsible for creating the majority of misery in working for Corporate America.
meat0918: Well, America had a nice run, but she can't compete with the massive amount of FUD because 40% of the country doesn't like the president despite things getting demonstratively and quantitatively better over the last 4 years.I wish we had a computer sim of the last 4 years, and we could see what would happen if Republicans hadn't made Obama being a one term president their number one goal, and instead had worked with him.
teto85: The billionaire who retired with a billion dollar pension from GE? That Jack Welch? That lying sack of crap?
reillan: Why won't Jack Welch answer the reports that say he helped Glenn Beck rape and murder a young girl in 1990?
I_C_Weener: I'm going out on a limb here, but this appears to be hyperbole.

lennavan: The leader of the "job truther" movement: former GE CEO Jack Welch."Unbelievable jobs numbers..these Chicago guys will do anything..can't debate so change numbers," he said on Twitter.I would just like to take this moment to remind people GE has made $80 Billion in the last decade, paying a 2.3% tax rate on that profit.Link

Rapmaster2000: I read a Jack Welch book once. That was a terrible idea.Here is a man who had one trick, seeing the end of the 70s fascination with conglomerates, and parlaying that in the age of Reagan into fame amongst MBA students. He himself hasn't run anything since bailing out with his golden parachute is ballyhooed proteges were all exposed to be hacks. Nardelli received multiple chances to fark up.
