More lies, damned lies and stimulus jobs 

Yesterday, David Freddoso discussed an AP report showing the White House is engaged in some pretty deceptive math in making the case the stimulus bill is responsible for creating jobs. I concluded "much, much more scrutiny needs to be given to the jobs numbers coming out of the White House." Well, newspapers around the country are taking a look-see and the results coming in are damning. Over at The Weekly Standard, Stephen Hayes has the rundown on reports from Chicago and Milwaukee. In both cities, local papers are finding the reports rife with errors grossly overcounting jobs in their area. Further, it appears that stimulus funds are being used to prop up bankrupt state governments, not create jobs.
