    Defend the administration all you want to. Make any excuse you desire, it just makes you supporters look more the fool every day than you are.

    Sometimes you need to stop defending the indefensible.
    Know the truth and the truth will make you mad, because the truth has no agenda.

    Nope...that comes from the people who have met him and spent time with him...namely the head of GE in an interview.

    In short, the drop in the unemployment rate was real. It was not an artifact of manipulation or fraud.
    the BLS didnt, the Census Bureau did....read the article and you might have known that. Making up data doesnt change the end results?

    Is he a trained psychologist? Narcissistic Personality Disorder is a diagnosis.

    As opposed to blindly accusing without evidence? I see you couldn't refute a single word I typed.

    Did I say that it was to make Obama's re-election chances better?

    You have a poor showing when you're trying to argue against something I actually say, don't try your chances with that which I don't, k?

    Further, Mr. Quick-to-Cover-Obama's-Jock, I did read the story, THE WHOLE THING, and as your query suggests, people around here, don't usually read the links provided, you're guilty of this yourself, so, naturally, the first glimpse of the keyword "anonymous" I pulled, (wrongfully in this case, heh, go figure) I went with.

    The implication was clear. Don't backtrack now.

    Cover Obama's Jock? As of now, nothing ties this story to Obama whatsoever.

    Well, can't say I didn't warn you.

    The Census employee caught faking the results is Julius Buckmon, according to confidential Census documents obtained by The Post. Buckmon told me in an interview this past weekend that he was told to make up information by higher-ups at Census.

    Who's anonymous?
    This is what I wrote with the context in which I wrote it, where in the Sam Hill did I infer, suggest, imply, or give any inkling that this was some sort of grand conspiracy to re-elect Obama?


    Eh? Oh, that's right, it wasn't... it was you talking out of your ass...

    I can't post anything on a thread that has Obama's name in it without you running to Obama's resucue, hands cupped, screaming "I'm comin for ya Beanie Boy!!!"



    Cover Obama's Jock? As of now, nothing ties this story to Obama whatsoever.
    Right, but you've still got a lock on his jock like a pitbull...

    I'll actually do the mea culpa on that one ... it was late, I'm exhausted and I thought you had said something someone else did. My bad.

    Again, as of now, this story has nothing to do with Obama. I criticize Obama plenty. However, around here, it's hard to not just shake my head at some of the ridiculous stuff that gets thrown at him.
