Jack Welch: I Should Have Used A Question Mark In My Tweet

Former GE CEO Jack Welch on Friday night stood by his tweet suggesting the Obama campaign manipulated the latest jobs report to make up for President Obama’s poor debate performance. But he told CNN’s Anderson Cooper he should have added a question mark. 

“A question mark might have been better,” he said. Welch’s comments set off a wave of conservative accusations over the latest jobs report from the Labor Department.
