Krauthammer’s Take: About Those BLS Numbers and the Lockheed Layoffs

On Special Report last night, Charles Krauthammer urged conservatives to steer clear of conspiracy theories about BLS cooking the books to bring down the unemployment rate — he attributes the drop to a sampling error — but argued that the new numbers will impact the presidential race because so many people vote in October. 

On sequestration, Krauthammer called the administration’s attempts to strong-arm Lockheed Martin into deferring layoff notices until after the election “lawlessness squared.”
