It has gotten so bad that they can’t even add up with any credibility the jobs they say were created by the stimulus package.

It is without a bit of irony that the agency created to count the jobs is called the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board. The RAT board is tasked with counting where the jobs are, but even the liberal (and very partisan) Democratic Rep. David Obey (Wis.) smells a rat when it comes to their calculations.

Here is what Obey had to say about the wrong numbers coming from the RAT board: “Credibility counts in government and stupid mistakes like this undermine it. We've got too many serious problems in this country to let that happen.

“Whether the numbers are good news or bad news, I want the honest numbers and I want them now.”

Why is Obey embarrassed about the RAT calculations?

Well, here is one example. The RAT reported that 50 jobs were created or saved when stimulus money went to pay for a cemetery’s $1,000 lawnmower.

According to ABC News, the RAT also claimed that jobs were created in Arizona’s 15th congressional district. The only problem with that is that there are only eight congressional districts in Arizona:

Here's a stimulus success story: In Arizona's 15th congressional district, 30 jobs have been saved or created with just $761,420 in federal stimulus spending. At least that's what the website set up by the Obama administration to track the $787 billion stimulus says. There's one problem, though: There is no 15th congressional district in Arizona; the state has only eight districts. And ABC News has found many more entries for projects like this in places that are incorrectly identified.

Late Monday, officials with the Recovery Board created to track the stimulus spending, said the mistakes in crediting nonexistent congressional districts were caused by human error. "We report what the recipients submit to us," said Ed Pound, Communications Director for the Board.”

Sure they do. I smell a RAT. When David Obey says that the Obama administration is losing credibility when it comes to jobs, you know that this Democratic White House is in serious trouble.
