I didn't think I'd end up writing a post today. Nothing really popped out. But, then I saw White House Advisers Give Three Different Numbers on ‘Saved or Created’ Jobs at

It's jaw dropping to believe how sloppy they could be. They have NO REAL IDEA of how anything really is. All they know how to do is spin. This administration is notorious for thinking that saying something is true is the same as having something be true. They really think they can tell us what to believe and think. Thank God for the blogosphere that is holding up the light to the lies.

Here are the comments:
Axelrod, on CNN’s State of the Union: “But understand that, in this recession that began at the beginning of 2007, we've lost 7 million jobs. Now, the Recovery Act the president passed has created more than — or saved more than 2 million jobs. But against 7 million, you know, that — that is — it is cold comfort to those who still are looking.”

Jarrett, on NBC’s Meet the Press: “The Recovery Act saved thousands and thousands of jobs. There are schoolteachers and firemen and— and— teachers all across our country, policemen, who have jobs today because of that recovery act. We're investing in infrastructure. We're investing in public education so that our kids can compete going forth into the next— generation.”

Gibbs, on “Fox News Sunday”: “Well, Chris, let's take for instance the example you just used of the stimulus package. We had four quarters of economic regression in terms of growth, right? Just last quarter, we finally saw the first positive economic job growth in more than a year. Largely as a result of the recovery plan that's put money back into our economy, that saved or created 1.5 million jobs.”
