    and they mentioned that the Obama administration was taking credit for creating jobs in districts that don't exist. Anyone on the Left have anything to say about that or are we ok with it it because it wasn't Bush that was lying? Just wondering. :)

    It's ridiculous that they claim to have created jobs in non-existent districts, but it's just as ridiculous that they claim government can create jobs in the first place. Any job a government creates comes at the expense of other real jobs, because real wealth is created in the private sector.

    Look at the district numbers, if obama was going to scam the system I think he would use numbers that could possibly be true. ONe of them was the 99th congressional district in the virgin islands. Who is going to really believe there is 99 congressional districts in the virgin islands or 86 in arizona. This is a case where some idiots who didn't know how to do paperwork just guessed.

    To answer the most important question: No, none of the lefties have ventured anywhere near this one.

    They look foolish enough trying to pimp foolhardy energy/environment and medical care policies.

    we have ventured near this because it is too stupid to be true. It would be like robbing a bank and leaving your home address on the way out.

    :lol:

    You never disappoint.

    I don't doubt it was flunkies trying to make their boy look good, but even Dems (on CNN) were calling this outrageous. Thanks for making my point about the Left's hypocrisy.

    The right thing to do, regardless of who did it, is to condemn government lying to us. You try to show why it's no big deal. Thank you.
