Count Obama whoppers in debt-deal speech
Wouldn’t it be easier to count the number of times Obama tells the truth?

An analysis of President Obama’s speech following his bitter battle with Congress over the debt deal shows many of the key facts he cited are seriously at odds with the public record.
The president made a number of reflections on the ordeal Thursday morning, including his thoughts on the damage done to the economy, the damage caused by the prospect of a default, restoring civility to the political dialogue and the state of Americans’ trust in government.
“[N]othing has done more to undermine our economy these past three years than the kind of tactics that create these manufactured crises,” the president said accusingly.
“Over the past four years, our economy has been growing, our businesses have been creating jobs, and our deficits have been cut in half.
“And remember, the deficit is getting smaller, not bigger. It’s going down faster than it has in the last 50 years.”
Technically, the economy may be growing, but it’s doing so at such a slow rate Forbes called it the the “worst economic recovery ever.”
