    The news that is not White House approved...
    Math Problem
    The stimulus has created 30,000 jobs... or so we thought. According to a new AP report, it looks like even that number is inflated.
    The AP says that in many cases jobs were counted as many as four times. A Colorado company claimed that thanks to the stimulus it had created over 4,000 jobs. The real number: less than one thousand. And a Florida child care center reported that it saved 129 jobs when in reality it just gave pay raises to its existing employees.
    The White House did not take kindly to this report. It fired back just 10 minutes after the article appeared, saying that the AP, "looked only at the earlier data posted, representing just 2 percent of Recovery Act spending. The data errors cited by AP... are not significant to the total job count... that will be posted on Friday."
    Well, if the early data is any indication of what's to come, we should be in for a real treat.
    Blame It on Bill
    The rocky relationship between President Obama and the Clintons is about to encounter even more turbulence. In a new book set to hit stores next week, Barack Obama's former campaign manager David Plough reveals why Hillary Clinton was not picked to be vice president and all the blame is being placed on former President Bill Clinton.
    Apparently Barack Obama was seriously leaning towards Hillary as his running mate, but later told his advisers, "I think Bill may be too big a complication. If I pick her, my concern is that there would be more than two of us in the relationship."
