Well... Did Obama just out and out lie to America? I believe so.

    Now I know he said today that no one in the White House, "top wage earners", but he said no one in the White House... and here is the video of it.

    But here is the truth...

    ---"The White House released its annual salary report last week, and as usual, it's nice to work for Barack Obama: Most staffers who were there for more than a year got a salary bump. A bigger one than you did.

    The last time we checked in on White House salaries, we found that an astonishing 75% of continuing staffers got raises from 2009 to 2010—a huge number given the fact that, according to compensation experts, most companies had skipped routine raises that year in reaction to the economic crisis that the White House was busy failing to solve. This time around—from 2010 to 2011—the ratio is a little less dramatic. Of the 270 White House staffers who have been there for more than a year, 146—or 54%—received raises. The average salary increase was 8%. If you look at only staffers who got raises, the average increase was twice that."---

      I just cannot graasp that he would say something so easily verifiable, and lie.

      I do not understand what he is thinking. He should have known the web would light up when they fact checked the his replies.

      Seems a lil dumb to me.
