    In a related story, Rep.Allen West pushes back, HARD, against a CNBC host:

    It would be more green for the Administration to post all their whoppers on a web site like the papers you used to see in the grocery store check out lines with headlines like: MARTIANS ATE OUR DINOSAURS.

    Thanks Dennis. Allen West is just the coolest under pressure out there today. What happened to “Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.” I guess that went the same place all the anti-war boneheads went. Right down the memory hole when the “Marxist-in-Chief” is in charge. Pathetic.

  4. Larry Kudlow is saying, on his program today, that the people at the Department of Labor would not intentionally fudge the numbers. But if we are indeed adding part time jobs instead of high paying full time ones, that still signals a very weak economy despite a lower official unemployment number. And the fact that so many people are questioning this report indicates another basic problem that faces this administration.

    In the story of the Boy Who Cried Wolf, a youngster foolishly lies over and over again for his own amusement. But when real trouble strikes, no one believes him because they no longer trust him. The Obama administration has developed a reputation for deception that is well deserved, as we have seen most recently regarding the affair in Libya. Is it any wonder that no one believes them when an unexpected change in the unemployment number comes out just one month before the election?

      Adding part time jobs to one side of the equation and not the other sounds like fudging if that’s what they did.

      Funny you should mention Larry Kudlow.

      As I distinctly recall, and will never forget, him yammering for everyone to hear from his CNBC perch in New York City about ‘The Green Shoots of Recovery’

      So Kudlow would have us believe that this Federal Government, in power right now at this moment in time, would NOT manipulate any and all statistics to influence the perception of reality of it’s Citizens?
