(INVESTOR'S BUSINESS DAILY) — Campaign '12: Where are those allegedly unbiased fact-checkers when you need them? Like this week and the fantastic fib that Obama's deputy campaign manager told about job growth under the current president.
Here's Stephanie Cutter's quote in full — uttered Wednesday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" — just so no one can accuse us of taking anything out of context:
"Well, I think that worker probably has a good understanding of what's happened over the past four years in terms of the president coming in and seeing 800,000 jobs lost on the day that the president was being sworn in, and seeing the president moving pretty quickly to stem the losses, to turn the economy around. And over the past, you know, 27 months we've created 4.5 million private-sector jobs. That's more jobs than in the Bush recovery (or) in the Reagan recovery."

You'd think that if the Obama campaign wanted to peddle outright fabrications, they'd at least do it so they weren't so easily debunked.
Not that the mainstream press, so deep in the tank for Obama, will bother.
