He’s going so fast, I can hardly keep up!! Yesterday he dropped a whopper of a lie.

“The reason the unemployment rate is still as high as it is, in part, is because there have been huge layoffs of government workers at the federal level, at the state level, at the local level. Teachers, police officers, firefighters, social workers– they have really taken it in the chin over the last several months. And so, what we’re trying to do is to see if we can stabilize the budget.”

A full fact-laden smackdown is laid out here: http://www.nationalreview.com/campaign-spot/267060/president-obama-completely-wrong-reason-high-unemployment

It calls Obama’s claim “completely wrong. Extremely and mind-bogglingly wrong. Epically wrong…There has not been a significant reduction — or even variation, really — in the size of the government workforce at the federal, state, and local level.”

Our President simply refuses to admit his economic policies are wrong. So he will continue to blame others, even when it means he has to make stuff up.
