I'm not perpetuating any lie; I'm not letting you get away with your lie.

You were asking others how they felt about spending $228,000 for every job saved or created -- why were you asking people if they were also outraged by that number if you really didn't believe it?
The answer is -- you did believe it. You really thought each job cost us $228,000. That's why you posted that. That's why you were outraged that each job cost that much. When people are outraged over numbers they don't believe are accurate, their outrage is directed at the incorrectness of the numbers; your outrage was not that the numbers were wrong, but that the numbers were right and those numbers cost us $228,000 per job.
You can't alter what you wrote...
"Don't you just love the Obama results? 15 million unemployed, 3.5 trillion added to the debt, 821 billion stimulus program that created or "saved" jobs that cost the taxpayer $228,000 each. Those are the results "your" President generated and why he got shellacked in 2010." ~ Conservative
After you posted that, and other similar posts where you expressed outrage that each stimulus job cost us $228,000, I pointed out to you that you unwittingly admitted that Obama's stimulus saved and created 3.5 million jobs. Half a million more than his stimulus targeted...
... you've been crying how you now don't believe the numbers you once claimed were the result of Obama's stimulus.
It's part and parcell with you. You have been caught many times cherry-picking data you think helps your position. That's all you're doing here. When you liked the sound of $228,000 per stimulus job, that's what you posted; when you didn't like the sound of that meaning 3.5 million jobs were saved/created, your cherry-picking goalpost-moving instincts kicked into high gear and led you to now tell the forum you don't believe what you post.
So why should anyone else believe what you post when you don't believe what you post?
