It’s no wonder, seeing as Progressives are the Masters of Manipulation, that many people accept the statistics fed to them by the mainstream media as solid, reliable, and true.
But they aren’t. In fact, those reported numbers show that while math is a science of verifiable results, it is still in the end easily manipulated by liars and thieves.
Which brings us to the Obama Administration, whose use of numbers in many instances reminds me of the kid who gets caught red handed with crumbs on his chin and then claims he was just getting me some cookies. In this case, the cookies are two economic numbers: the Unemployment Rate and the Budget Deficit. And when you look at them, you’ll realize that Obama ate your dessert.
