I doubt the Government is corrupt (politicians can be corrupt, but I doubt many think the actual Government is corrupt), but it is ridiculously inefficient.

Some good number for Obama.
And already people are concocting conspiracy theories arguing that the organization fixed their numbers (extraordinarily unlikely), or the survey group was deliberately tainted (also unlikely, but this will have some traction), or even that democrats surveyed lied about getting jobs (possible, but not in such large numbers).

Honestly, the numbers report is probably boosted by seasonal job shifts and other simple factors that are employing more people currently but not for long lasting work.
