It was just a matter of time before someone checked his “facts” and discovered, to hardly anyone’s surprise, that the president overstated, underreported, misquoted or ignored altogether in his eminently forgettable SOTU speech. To wit:

OBAMA: “After years of grueling recession, our businesses have created over 6 million new jobs.”

That depends on when you start counting. doesn’t start counting when he took office in January 2009. Oh no. He starts counting from the bottom of the recession, February 2010. From there it’s 6 million. But not really:

have grown by 6.1 million since February 2010. But since he became president, the gain is a more modest 1.9 million.

And when losses in public sector employment are added to the mix, his overall record is a gain of 1.2 million.

And then there’s his great success in doubling gas mileage:

OBAMA: “We have doubled the distance our cars will go on a gallon of gas.”

Well, I just checked my mileage. I’m still getting about 28 mpg. Oh, I see, new cars. But wait. Those standards don’t kick in for twelve years. I see. Thanks.

Here’s my favorite:

OBAMA: “Already the Affordable Care Act is helping to reduce the growth of care costs.”

I’ve been tasked to find out if care costs are slowing significantly and if so, why? And if not, why? The best I can come up with is that “it’s the economy, stupid” and any slowing in the rate of increase in healthcare costs has little to do with savings through Obamacare. Any savings are coming from innovations that are being developed despite Obamacare, and not because of it. And not all of Obamacare’s mandates have kicked in yet:

THE FACTS: The jury is still out on whether Obama’s care overhaul will reduce the growth of health care costs. It’s true that cost increases have eased, but many experts say that’s due to the sluggish economy, not to the health care law, whose main provisions are not yet fully in effect.

There is more to the article, and his list of lies, misstatements and exaggerations, but these will do nicely. Thanks for nothing, Mr. President. Just keep those lips moving.
