In response to a statement about the high unemployment rate for those with college degrees, Robert Gibbs, a surrogate for President Obama's reelection campaign, admitted that things are particularly bad for those without college degrees:  

“But boy that unemployment rate when you get out of college is tough," MSNBC host Chuck Todd said. "It's higher than the national average."

"You should see the unemployment rate if you don't get through college," Gibbs responded. "It's about twice as high for those that do have a college degree."
