I never trust government issued economic numbers, no matter which party is in power, because the politicians can easily doctor the numbers to serve their own political ends, and they probably all do it to the degree they can get away with it. There's no doubt whatsoever in my mind that Obummer fudges the numbers. But there's also no doubt in my mind that Dubya, and every president before him, fudged them too, ever since government numbers began.
