Obama Calls Errors In Stimulus Data "Side Issues"

Posted: Nov 19, 2009 9:25 AM
Despite more information emerging about the fraud being advertised on Recovery.gov, President Obama is (not surprisingly) urging folks to NOT pay attention to the errors in data reporting, and instead, focus on job growth. 
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.
Uh... what job growth?  Aside from the federal government, have there been a significant number of jobs created that have helped to grow the economy?  I think President Obama has a much better chance of updating his Recovery.gov website than in creating jobs with his failed stimulus package.  On job growth and accountability, this administration is currently scoring a big fat FAIL.

And please don't preach about "unprecedented transparency" and then claim that providing factual information is not one of your responsibilities.
