Neutron Jack

Before there was Jeffrey Immelt to despise there was Jack Welch.  Jack Welch led the way to mass layoffs and sending US jobs overseas.  When other companies thought their US employees might have value Jack showed them otherwise.  Lay off as many Americans as possible and don’t ever thing twice about it. 

Now Jack is upset that the unemployment numbers supposedly came down a month before the election.  He is upset people might think all his hard work in creating unemployed might be glossed over for the sake of political gains.  He knows there aren’t anymore jobs this month (then last) and he wants to make sure everyone else knows it too.  It is real important that his legacy stay in tact.  Don’t worry Jack we believe you.

 Welch trimmed GE's workforce by more than 100,000, earning him the nickname he despised "Neutron Jack" a reference to the bomb designed to remove the people but leave the buildings intact.

The conspiracy erupted after former General Electric CEO Jack Welch, a Republican, tweeted his skepticism five minutes after theLabor Department announced that the unemployment rate had fallen to 7.8 percent in September from 8.1 percent the month before.
"Unbelievable jobs numbers..these Chicago guys will do anything..can't debate so change numbers," Welch tweeted, referring to the site of Obama campaign headquarters.
