Jay Carney snarks at Ed Henry’s question pointing out unemployment for government workers is 4.2%

Ed Henry asked a fantastic question of Jay Carney today, asking why the president said on Friday that the weaknesses were in state and local government hiring when unemployment for government workers is 4.2% versus an unemployment rate of 9.5% in the agriculture-sector and 14.2% for construction workers. Carney responded by accusing Henry of ‘cherry picking’ statistics and then blamed Republicans for not passing the presidents proposal that would supposedly have decreased the unemployment rate for construction workers. Carney also mentioned “the worst recession since the great depression” several times. Imagine that.
