Math is hard!

The White House: home of the whopper.
"[W]e’ve seen more than 100 million Americans already successfully enroll in the new insurance plans."
Update: Yeah, math is hard. But you can always fake it.
In the home stretch of the 2012 presidential campaign, from August to September, the unemployment rate fell sharply — raising eyebrows from Wall Street to Washington.

The decline — from 8.1 percent in August to 7.8 percent in September — might not have been all it seemed. The numbers, according to a reliable source, were manipulated.

And the Census Bureau, which does the unemployment survey, knew it.

What he meant was, there are still 100 million Americans who think Obocare is free health care.

I think I'm more angry about the manipulated job statistics than I am Obama's constant liarhhea. People accused George Bush of stealing his second election win, but it's pretty clear to me from what I've read that Obama did exactly that.

I have until now considered the question of how we recover from Obama to be an economic one, but now it's obvious that it's a structural one. How do we recover the extensive and deep damage he has done? We need to reform the civil service and the entire bureaucracy.

This is Soviet style official mendacity. We're turning into a banana republic and I don't know if it's possible to recover.

There is also no inflation according to government statistics. Never mind that the way inflation is calculated has been 'modified' about 20 times since 1980. If the Consumer Price Index remains the same, the government will not have to increase payments that are indexed to the inflation rate.

*sigh* George Bush stole nothing. Al Gore attempted to steal the election but was made to stop and desist. Every recount done by media showed conclusively that George Bush was the winner.
