NC GOP lie machine cranks up after dismal jobs report

The NC February employment report is out and it's not good.

North Carolina's unemployment rate fell again in February, but employers in the state continued to shed jobs, according to data released Friday by the state Department of Commerce.

A survey calculating nonfarm payrolls recorded 11,300 fewer jobs in the month after a decline of more than 7,000 jobs in January.

As usual, the NC GOP lie machine latches on to a decreased unemployment rate and ignores the very real job losses, claiming good news when the news is clearly bad.

We know that the unemployment rate is decreasing because the workforce is decreasing and people are dropping out, no longer looking for jobs.

We've lost more than 18,000 jobs in NC this year and the NC GOP is doing a happy dance.

Carolina Comeback?

Nope. Carolina Catasrophe, says Rep. David Price.

We agree.

It's deplorable that the NC GOP lie machine is making this catastrophe out to be a good thing.

WSJ: NC had the most job losses in US last month

Even the conservative Wall Street Journal thinks the #CarolinaComeback is #McCroryBunk.

Interesting

Once the WSJ article got some attention, the NC GOP lie machine got deathly quiet.

Typically, they rally the troops and get at least a dozen people tweeting, Facebooking, blogging over a couple days. This time, after a few (perhaps uncoordinated?) blurts, they're now trying to change the subject.

Apparently even Tillisberger hasn't figured out how to spin "most job losses in the nation" into good news, and the happy dance got cut short.
