Calling Winston Smith...

A small item on the Drudge Report: "The government plans big revisions to historical economic data... Developing... " was accompanying this bit of news from Bloomberg.

So, are we just going to make the history match the rhetoric now? The article describes how the Commerce Department (works for the prez) revised historical figures to show that the Bush recession was not really as bad as previous reports (making Bush look bad +1) and that the Obama recession is twice as bad as previously thought (making Bush look bad +1). Double-Bonus!! I mean, really!

That was not the economy you thought it was..

Who is going to be working the Memory Hole at the Ministry of Truth?

Maybe we are going to be getting a "Truth Czar" next...

What do you think??
