Obama's budget support numbers a big lie - by a factor of 3.

But CNN and Huffington Post don't care, they report whatever they're told by the DNC as gospel. Turns out the nationwide email campaign came up a little short so they decided to fudge things by 300%.

The president's e-mail list of 13-million resulted in just 114,000 individual pledges — a response rate of less than 1 percent. Party workers secured another 100,000 signatures by hitting the streets. The DNC arrived at its 642,000 figure by making three photocopies of each petition so that every signer's senators and representative could get one.

These people must be using the same math in predicting the budget deficit will be cut in half by the end of Obama's term.

Read the whole thing. Believe me, it won't be on the network news tonight.

That is an unbelievably low response rate -- almost as low as those who think the Patriots should bring back Drew Bledsoe.
