The words are those of President
The Columbus Dispatch has an editorial today calling the president’s claims “magical arithmetic.” That is more generous than we are inclined to be.
The facts are plain. This President has increased the national debt by 41 percent to $16 trillion. He’s added about $5 or $6 trillion to the total, give or take a few nickels and dimes.
The Columbus Dispatch is not the only media outlet to have noticed the President’s creative bookkeeping. The Washington Post awarded him “three Pinocchios” for his statements. Why not four? It turns out that the words “at,” “in” and “the” were true.
