    "The White House is really getting specific when it comes to the unemployment rate.

    Rather than 8.3% -- the rounded-up figure -- Obama economic adviser Alan Krueger writes on the White House website that the real jobless rate is 8.254%.

    "The household survey showed that the unemployment rate ticked up to 8.3% in July (or, more precisely, the rate rose from 8.217% in June to 8.254% in July)," wrote Krueger, chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers."

    Oh, that's much better. Talk about it some more Obama people so more regular Americans can get pissed off over your nit picking.

    BTW, Obama is suing Ohio to stop special election privileges for those in the armed forces. Obama would stab is own mother in the back if he thought it would help get him elected. (if she were alive, of course)

    This is not new for the left. Al Gore tried to prevent absentee ballots from the military being counted.

    See, it's hyperbole like that which raises emotions. He wouldn't kill her, but he surely would throw her under the bus, just like he did his dear old grandma.
