    Of course it's a lie. O-Bama Fans don't care. They just lap up everything he says while staring dreamy eyed at his life-sized poster.

    Red will be here soon to put a liberal spin on this.

    Sorry, not an option. What Washington calls "politics", we in the real world call a lie.

    Some of you guys will believe anything. :lol: Look at the whole list and it become apparent that this is a result of data entry errors.

    Most are reporting zero jobs and small amount of money. So very few of these records exist and they were filled out by the recipients. A very few of them apparently entered their state legislative districts instead of congressional districts. Louisiana definitely has districts 12, 14, 22, 26, 32, and 45.

    The only phantom district with significant numbers was the 8th Congresional district and Louisiana had an 8th district until 1993. Some folks may have entered their old Congressional district numbers. Or confused it with the 8th Louisiana legislative districts which still exist.

    It is significant that the totals are not off, they were just entered into the database incorrectly. Ask any IT guy how often this happens.

    And that's exactly what the Board said when asked about the odd districts.

    Why do you waste so much time trying to disprove what we all know to be true? Obama is the wrong man for this job.

    To make it clear that your political beliefs are not based on facts but upon extreme right-wing ideology.
