And another report from Associated Press: Stimulus jobs overstated by thousands.

All too often, our politicians seem to think that if they tell you the same lie, over and over again, it will actually become the truth. However, this "saved and created jobs" lie is just too much of an exaggeration for anyone to take seriously.
