Jack Welch Still Thinking Things

One day before the presidential election, the former General Electric Co. chief executive officer again suggested that government figures on employment are being manipulated for political gain. “Every fact says we don’t have a booming economy,” Welch said today in an interview on CNBC. “Something’s wacky here. I didn’t think it was right.” [Bloomberg, earlier]

    What I wouldn't give to see that man naked in my steam room doing squat thrusts while reading my tweets back to me.

      Actually, it's not really *your* steam room, and frankly we've got some letters from the health department asking some pretty suspicious questions related to the results of a recent inspection. Apologies, but we're going to have to restrict your locker room usage privileges moving forward. Thanks.

    You think if there were political manipulations of economic data, every fact would say that we do have a booming economy…

    Good ol' Jack still has a higher than dieserved opinion of himself…sad for an old guy to continue to embarass himself. He probably pees on his shoes too…
