CNBC's Suze Orman bills herself as an "internationally acclaimed personal financial expert."
This "financial expert," appearing on HBO's Real Time Friday, said that in 2012, "We are average [sic] 200,000 jobs a month that are being created...[Obama's] done so much in the past four years I can’t even tell you" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
SUZE ORMAN: I think he not only should run on his record, so he can run on his record, but let’s take a look at this. We have jobs. You can’t do anything without a job. In 2010, we averaged about a million jobs. Okay?
BILL MAHER, HOST: A million jobs?
ORMAN: A million jobs that were created. In 2011, it was 1.8 million jobs. Now, in 2012, we are average 200,000 jobs a month that are being created. So he can run on his record. The jobs are coming up. And he’s done so much in the past four years I can’t even tell you.
Did I mention this came from a self-described "internationally acclaimed personal financial expert?"
I guess this "internationally acclaimed personal financial expert" doesn't know that as we only have one month of data, there is no average yet. You do need at least two pieces of data to have an average.
Also eluding this "internationally acclaimed personal financial expert" is that Obama's only been in office for three years - or does his campaign year count towards him doing "so much?"
With math skills such as these, how'd you like Orman managing your personal finances?
Associate Editor’s note: As you are likely aware, since the financial collapse of 2008, charities and non-profit organizations have seen a sharp reduction in donations. Although the environment has improved, contributions are still nowhere near where they were prior to the recession. Unfortunately, the Media Research Center has not been immune. With this in mind, your support has become more important than ever. With a critical election approaching, the liberal media needs to be monitored 24/7. As we have been predicting for months, the press are willing to do anything to get their beloved politicians elected and/or reelected. As such, we need your help to fight this fight. Any contribution, even $10, is greatly appreciated. Please consider a tax-deductible gift to the Media Research Center to help us battle the liberal media. Thank you.
