3 White House advisors give 3 different answers on the same subject on the same morning

OH No!!! Looks like some people are not getting the same memo in the white house:

3 different white house advisors gave different answers on the same Sunday morning on 3 different shows in regards to how much the stimulus had saved jobs.

Valerie Jarrett had the most conservative count, saying “the Recovery Act saved thousands and thousands of jobs,” while David Axelrod gave the bill the most credit, saying it has “created more than – or saved more than 2 million jobs.” Press Secretary Robert Gibbs came in between them, saying the plan had “saved or created 1.5 million jobs.”
Their remarks in context:

Axelrod, on CNN’s State of the Union: “But understand that, in this recession that began at the beginning of 2007, we’ve lost 7 million jobs. Now, the Recovery Act the president passed has created more than — or saved more than 2 million jobs. But against 7 million, you know, that — that is — it is cold comfort to those who still are looking.”

Jarrett, on NBC’s Meet the Press: “The Recovery Act saved thousands and thousands of jobs. There are schoolteachers and firemen and— and— teachers all across our country, policemen, who have jobs today because of that recovery act. We’re investing in infrastructure. We’re investing in public education so that our kids can compete going forth into the next— generation.”

Gibbs, on “Fox News Sunday”: “Well, Chris, let’s take for instance the example you just used of the stimulus package. We had four quarters of economic regression in terms of growth, right? Just last quarter, we finally saw the first positive economic job growth in more than a year. Largely as a result of the recovery plan that’s put money back into our economy, that saved or created 1.5 million jobs.”

White House. Aug 8th: War on Terror is over. Aug 31st: War on Terror is On??

On August 8th the White House spoke out about the War on Terror being over, only moving ahead with saying its a War on Al Queda.

Lets insert time here…2 weeks later.

Well today it seems as though Robert Gibbs, the white House press secretary did not get that memo…but hay at least they are finally speaking about it (see previous posts)

Lets just blame the communication breakdown on too much fun at margaritaville.

We all hear so many promises during the election process, don’t we? So many people believe those promises, and that is what is scary. No matter what side of the fence you are on, everyone should have had the common sense to know it would not and could not be over like the flick of a remote control switch. Yet they say it and people believe it.

Idiots! (Voters and Politicians get the blame here)

All the do by “exaggerating” is lose faith in your voters. Someone, somewhere needs to stand up and stop lying. People can take the good with the bad. Just stop feeding us B.S. Its going to come out eventually.

Sigh!
