Like that's something new! He's on about how "his stimulus program saved or created 2 million jobs". Yeah, right, sure. Giving someone a raise does NOT constitute saving or creating a job. And saying that X amount of jobs in 12345 zip code were created, when 12345 zip code does not even exist, make it a saved or created job. Districts were quoted on the Obama recovery website, that didn't even exist. There were so many holes and blunders on that website, that its ridiculous.
From the Washington Examiner:
The fiasco prompted Office of Management and Budget Director Peter Orszag to issue new "simplified guidelines" for how to measure the effect of the stimulus program on employment. But, as Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., wrote in a Jan. 8 letter to recovery.gov's inspector general, the new guidelines actually raised additional credibility questions about White House assertions on the stimulus program's effectiveness.
Said Issa: "The new guidance counts every job that is funded using stimulus money -- even if it existed before the Recovery Act, and was not in any danger of being eliminated -- as 'created or saved.' This definition ignores the plain meanings of the words 'created' and 'saved,' and makes Recovery.gov's 'JOBS CREATED/SAVED' label a falsehood, further eroding the confidence of the American people in their government."
What else will they lie about? They lie about global warming - it hasn't warmed since 1995.. but they keep on about it.
They're taking the propaganda way from Hitler, Goebbels, etc.
His primary rules were: never allow the public to cool off; never admit a fault or wrong; never concede that there may be some good in your enemy; never leave room for alternatives; never accept blame; concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame him for everything that goes wrong; people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it.
Does this sound familiar? It sure does. They admit nothing is ever done wrong, etc. It's the Chicago way, taken straight from the Nazi playbook.
