State of the Union: The facts

The Associated Press has a great article fact-checking President Obama's State of the Union Address. For example, Obama said, ""Starting in 2011, we are prepared to freeze government spending for three years...."

Sounds good but according to the AP the savings would amount to "less than 1 percent of the deficit."

Sounds to me like more smoke and mirrors by our President.

The President also lied, I mean, said that he has "excluded lobbyists from policymaking jobs."

The AP points out that "seven waivers from the ban have been granted to White House officials alone."

Please read the entire article.
