    Yeah. You lecture me after I point out your deceit three times.

    At least you're acknowledging that there was more to the paragraph than you wanted anyone to believe. That's a little progress anyway.

    And it doesn't even matter, because I engaged you on your faulty terms.

    You would be well-advised to do what you said you were going to do, and "drop it," because you're seriously grasping at dishonest straws.

    If you were right, Karl, why all the dishonest editing? People who are correct don't generally have to lie.

    Anyone want to guess who jumped in this morning... discussing this off topic subject?

    Re: US economy creates 243,000 jobs in January

    This link is a pretty good read.And its also about the economy.


    <Did Obama make the economy worse? Not according to most statistics >

    <Over the past two days, Mitt Romney has resurrected this claim hitting President Obama: He has made the economy worse. >


    <"This has been a tough time. And I know the president didn't cause this downturn -- this recession. But he didn't make it better, either.>

    <However, most of the economic numbers don't support Romney's claim.>

    <For example, the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office found that the economic stimulus Obama signed into law added -- in the 4th quarter of 2009 -- between 1 million and 2 million employed workers and boosted the GDP between 1.5% to 3.5% higher than it would have been without the stimulus.>

    The Obama results which obviously you have no interest in seeing show that indeed the economic numbers are mostly worse but let's face it Obama is a better singer and campaigner than anyone running against him. He sure has you fooled.

    Read the thread, I never advocated that method for determining fiscal deficits. That was your buddy Karl.

    yet even Romney has this to say "And I know the president didn't cause this downturn ".Kinda hits you in the face, considering the drum you've been beatin since he was elected eh?
