Debbie Wasserman Schultz is the gift that keeps on giving. As Ed Morrissey pointed out, today on Fox, she denies that unemployment went up under Obama.

No, really:

Morrissey points to these facts Gretchen Carlson spoke of:

  • Jobless rate in January 2009: 7.8%. Jobless rate in November 2011: 8.6%.
  • Number of employed in January 2009, in thousands: 133,563. In November 2011: 131,708
  • Civilian participation rate in January 2009: 65.7%. In November 2011: 64.0%
  • Unemployment level in January 2009, in thousands: 11,984. In November 2011: 13,303
  • Number of people not in labor force, January 2009, in thousands: 80,554. In November 2011: 86,558

As John Adams said, facts are stubborn things.
