1. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal said he cut the state budget by 26 percent, but that drop is due to a decline in federal funds.
2. Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul said he was “leading Hillary Clinton in five states won by President Obama.” Actually his numbers are within the margin of error in all five states.
3. Former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania said workers’ wages “have flatlined for 20 years,” when the average real earnings for rank-and-file workers is up about 13 percent.
4. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Admitted to the following lies:
— Chelsea was jogging around the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. (She was in bed watching it on TV.)
— Hillary was named after Sir Edmund Hillary. (She admitted she was wrong. He climbed Mt. Everest five years after her birth.)
— She was under sniper fire in Bosnia. (A girl presented her with flowers at the foot of the ramp.)
— She learned in The Wall Street Journal how to make a killing in the futures market. (It didn’t cover the market back then.)
Whoppers She Won’t Confess To:
— She didn’t know about the pardons of members of the violent Puerto Rico nationalist group FALN.
— She didn’t know that her brothers were being paid to get pardons that Clinton granted.
— Taking the White House gifts was a clerical error.
— She didn’t know that her staff would fire the travel office staff after she told them to do so.
— She didn’t know that the Peter Paul fund-raiser in Hollywood in 2000 cost $700,000 more than she reported it had.
— She opposed NAFTA at the time.
— She was instrumental in the Irish peace process.
— She urged Bill to intervene in Rwanda.
— She played a role in the ’90s economic recovery.
— The Rose Law Firm billing records showed up on their own.
— She thought Bill was innocent when the Monica scandal broke.
— She was always a Yankees fan.
— She had nothing to do with the New Square Hasidic pardons (after they voted for her 1,400 to 12 and she attended a meeting at the White House about the pardons).
— She negotiated for the release of refugees in Macedonia (who were released the day before she got there).
