In an incredibly desperate attempt to spin their hero Scott walker's dismal job failures, M.D.Kittle, put out a piece of propaganda crap that would make Christian Schneider jealous!
While the whole thing is drivel, this one stood put specifically:
Remember when President-elect Obama promised that the nation’s unemployment rate would not rise above 8 percent if the so-called stimulus package was enacted.Sorry M.D. I do NOT remember that because it NEVER happened. President Obama never ever made that promise. Heck even the Walker friendly politifact couldn't join you on this one(after Pink Slip Paul Ryan recited the same lie).
Ryan said the Obama administration promised "unemployment would never get to 8 percent."
Obama didn’t say that. Rather, his Council of Economic Advisers predicted that the stimulus would hold it to that level. Their report included heavy disclaimers that the projections had "significant margins of error" and a high degree of uncertainty due to a recession that is "unusual both in its fundamental causes and its severity."
The sub-8 percent prediction did not hold true, but it’s still incorrect to characterize it as a promise or guarantee.
We rate Ryan’s statement Mostly False.
In case you missed it above ---- Obama didn’t say that.
If a statement is "mostly false" in 2012, what is it when a supposed media outlet regurgitates the same BS two years later?
There is a reason that at certain times, Wisconsin reporter is not allowed access to things. They are not reporters or journalists, they are well compensated propaganda machines.
Here is Matt Kittle's email address. Let him know that we should expect more out of our so called "media".
