    Plouffe referred to an “amazing article” that supposedly proved that Republicans have talked openly about improving Romney’s chances in the election by doing nothing on the economy. But the article actually explained that GOP lawmakers prefer to postpone any deal making until after the election because they’re feeling bullish about their chances. That is no different than what Democrats have done in the past.

    Neither of Plouffe’s claims were factually correct, so Team Obama earns four Pinocchios.

    Of course that hasn't stopped certain partisans on this site from parroting Plouffe as if they believe that when you tell a lie enough times it becomes true. Sorry, it doesn't.

    Romney took office and unemployment was over 6%.

    When he left office unemployment was at 4.7%.

    4.7% is considered by economists and the government to be "full employment" so there really weren't any other jobs to "create" at that point.
