Barack Obama Tells FOX News the Bogus Jobs Data a "Side Issue"
It’s another distraction.
Barack Obama told Major Garrett on FOX News that the phantom job creation data reported at his recovery.com website is a “side issue.”

FOX News reported:
President Obama brushed off criticism over his administration’s inaccurate reporting on job creation Wednesday, telling Fox News the accounting is an “inexact science” and that any errors are a “side issue” when compared with the goal of turning the economy around. He said job growth is his No.1 responsibility.
The president was responding to criticism from Republicans, as well as Democratic Rep. David Obey, who drew attention to embarrassing errors on the Recovery.gov Web site that tracks stimulus funding. The site is under fire for claiming a number of jobs were created from the stimulus in congressional districts that don’t exist and accepting unrealistic and inflated jobs data from various sources.
Is counting jobs really an “inexact science?”
It never was before.
Or, is that just part of the hope and change we were promised?
