Interesting article, but where are the FACTS? Who, what, where, when, where,
how?If polling data is being misreported, isn't that the
"fact" that needs to be reported?If Obama or Romney is
"cooking the books", isn't that the "fact" that needs to be
reported?When Obama tells us that unemployment is down by a full
0.5% when the September new job creation is the worst of the year, and prior
months did not show that "decrease", are we to be stooges and take him
at his word? When Obama tells us that he raised $181 million from
small contributors who each gave $2, are we to be stooges and believe what he
says?When Obama tells us that "big oil" is to blame for our
economic problems because the government gave it $2.5 billion in tax credits,
overlooking the $90 billion that Obama funnelled to his contributors in
"clean energy", are we to be stooges and look the other way?Something stinks in Washington, and it isn't just the polls.
Uh, none of those poll results are outside the margin of error. Different polls
use different methodologies, but overall, nothing's much changed. Romney
got a bit of a debate bounce, but Obama's still a little ahead. Also, Mike Richards, the unemployment numbers are legit. You have no idea how
scrupulously the Department of Labor Statistics compiles those results. And
Obama did not funnel 90 billion, or any other amount to his contributors.
Sorry, you're looking for a scandal that doesn't exist.
Re: "You have no idea how scrupulously the Department of Labor Statistics
compiles those results."Oh, I think we've got a pretty good
idea.It takes a lot of scrupulous attention to political details to
slavishly spout the Democrat party line -- "happy days are here again"
-- in spite of the enormous weight of the evidence to the contrary.I'm sure a lot of Labor Department political appointees laid awake
various nights pondering how big a lie they thought they could get away with in
their feckless efforts to re-elect the President.By bending,
folding, stapling and mutilating taxpayer-funded statistics, of course.
Look, y'all, if they wanted to invent a number, they would have done better
than 7.8. If the DLS is really as corrupt as y'all would have it, then
they're kinda bad at it.
Let's give it a day or two before blindly accepting "data".
Breaking news is FINALLY telling us that Obama and Clinton lied about the
killing of our Ambassador. In a day or two we will know more of the truth. If Obama has lied about the attack on our embassy, does anyone really
think that he's telling the truth about anything?A liar lies.
