I'm watching commentary on the presidential debates right now on CNN. Maybe I'll be back later to write more about the debate in general, but one thing jumped out at me.
A fact-checking talking head just came on and "corrected" what Kerry had said about job loss under Bush. He said that Kerry claimed 1.6 million had been lost, but in reality, as far as private sector jobs go (emphasis mine, and it's not meant to represent an exact quote), only half that many jobs have been lost.
So, if 1.6 million jobs have been lost and only 800,000 of them are in the private sector, then that means... can you guess? It means... Bush has created 800,000 government jobs.
In my free time, I'm working on a list of myths and big lies. Lie #1: the Earth is flat. Lie #2: the Jews are our affliction. Lie #3: The Republican party is the party of smaller, limited government.
