...they stretch it BIG TIME!
As Barack Obama said in Richmond yesterday...
"In case you missed it, this week, there was a tragedy in Kansas. Ten thousand people died - an entire town destroyed."
Now, first of all, 12 people died...and the town's entire population was 1,600. So nothing in the statistical analysis of this town could approach the number "10,000". So, it's not like he meant to say "10,000 homes destroyed", or "10,000 people injured", or even "10,000 civilians displaced from their homes".
He simply came up with that number. Wonder what the liberal spin will be on this quote.
I did notice that Vivian J. Paige didn't bother to mention this tidbit of information, either, in her report on the event. Whether or not she noticed his gaffe and chose to ignore it, or was simply caught up in "Obama Fever" and didn't catch that he said this, I don't know...but I did notice it's lack of mention.
