    Convince the Unemployed to leave the State and go elsewhere.  Sure - the unemployment rate goes down as all those involved in Construction Trades are mostly mobile and simple leave - but then he turns around and claimes he creagted 200,000 jobs when in  actuality the State lost jobs.

    Last month is a perfect example.  Nationally we created 155,000 jobs.  In Florida we LOST 15,300 jobs yet the unemployment rates went down .3% because again - so many people simply left.
