To Mitt Romney, the economy is in a shambles. To fellow Republican Scott Walker, the governor of Wisconsin, it is a glowing success.

Romney and Walker offered clashing portraits of the economy at a Waukesha County GOP dinner on Saturday.

It was a jarring display of how political imperatives can lead candidates of the same party to examine the same set of facts and reach wildly different conclusions that suit their needs for an upcoming election.

Facing a June recall vote sparked by his fight with unions of government workers, Walker cast himself as the governor whose fiscal restraint has turned Wisconsin’s economy around.

“The unemployment rate is now below 7% for the first time since 2008,” he boasted. “We’re headed in the right direction.”

Walker said he would be “almost a slam dunk for reelection,” were he not the target of “union bosses” battling to keep power.

“We helped to improve the economy by understanding the people create jobs, not the government, making it easier for the people of our state to create more jobs,” he told the hundreds of Republicans gathered in a hotel ballroom.

Moments later, Romney stepped onto the same stage and -- after the requisite tribute to Walker -- offered his bleak description of America’s economy.

“We know that under Barack Obama, 800,000 jobs have been lost,” said Romney, a candidate in the Wisconsin presidential primary on Tuesday. “We know that under Barack Obama, 2.3 million homes have been foreclosed upon. <span style='font-size: 17pt'>We know that under this president, chronic unemployment is the worst it’s been in American history.</span>” <span style="color: #000099">That's a downright lie. It was 23.6% in 1932</span>

Romney acknowledged the nation’s recent job gains, but told the crowd to keep in mind that Obama’s main economic stimulus measure “expired three years ago.” <span style="color: #000099"> Another lie.</span>(The $787-billion stimulus package did not expire three years ago; Obama signed it into law in February 2009.)

“The recovery you’re seeing is in spite of his stimulus, not because of it,” Romney said. “His stimulus failed the American people.”<span style="color: #000099"> Another lie!!! If not for the stimulus, more people would be out of a job.</span>

In the first 30 secs of his speech he lies at least 3 times!

Nevr mind, there's always Santorum, he would never lie, right?

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Santorum Claims California Universities Don’t Teach American History (Updated)

Rick Santorum has previously called colleges “indoctrination mills” that make students liberal and Godless, and labeled President Obama a “snob” for wanting kids to get educated. “Oh, I understand why he wants you to go to college. He wants to remake you in his image,” Santorum said.

Santorum continued his broadside against higher education (and the facts) today in Wisconsin, <u>claiming that “seven or eight” of the ten schools in the University of California system “don’t even teach an American history course”:</u>

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>SANTORUM: I was just reading something last night from the state of California. And that the California universities – I think it’s seven or eight of the California system of universities <u>don’t even teach an American history course. It’s not even available to be taught.</u></span> </div></div>

Really, Rick. Is that true?

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"><u>In fact, of the 10 UC system schools, just one (San Francisco) doesn’t offer American history courses. But that’s because it doesn’t offer any humanities courses at all — it’s a medical school.</u><span style="color: #000099">LOL</span>

Meanwhile, Berkeley, Irvine, Davis, Los Angeles, Merced, Riverside, San Diego, Santa Barbara, and Santa Cruz all offer numerous American history courses. <span style='font-size: 14pt'>All require students to take U.S. history before they can graduate.</span>


University of California spokesperson Brooke Converse emailed to note that<span style='font-size: 20pt'> every single UC undergraduate program is required to study “American history and institutions,” though specific requirements vary at each campus.</span> </div></div>

Oh my!

So he is on track to matching Obama's stump speeches.
