Stats don't lie!
Or do they? Take a look at the "640,000 jobs created or saved" by the Obama $160 billion stimulus spending. Challenged by ABC, the network took a harder look and concluded that 60,000 jobs should be culled from the list.
Then, on Monday, ABC reported that the government had claimed $751,420 in spending and 30 jobs created in Arizona's 15th Congressional District.
Mr. President, we have a problem. There is no 15th District in Arizona. Dave Obey blew a cork. He called the inaccuracies "outrageous." Obey said, "Good news or bad news, I want honest numbers." Is anyone stepping forward to apologize? Nope.

But really the numbers are reported by the people receiving money. Just 'cause they don't know geography/civics (I mean it AZ, have you seen their congressional delegation??) doesn't mean the recovery isn't working or should be criticized.
