Wow is all I can say to this. Theset up is that politifact is "fact checking" the claim that Romney lowered Massachusett's unemployment rate to 4.7% during his time as Governor. Here is how they rate the claim:
We checked Bureau of Labor Statistics data and found that the statistic was correct. The low point for the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate during Romney’s tenure was 4.7 percent. (It happened during Romney’s final full month in office, December 2006.)
And how do they rate it?
On balance, we rate the claim Half True.
Politifact is a joke.
ETA: Guess I should add the link. LINK
