Get the quote right. Lyndon Johnson said: "There are three kinds of lies. Lies, Damned Lies, and Statistics."

Even if you assume the $12 billion figure, the 200,000 job figure is ridiculous. A modern manufacturing facility translates into something more like a million dollars in sales per worker, not $60,000 ($12b/200k).

Trust no one and verify all data. Truth is more subjective than it used to be. SPIN is the name of the game and everyone uses statistics to justify their miss-information. Pity really, we used to be able to trust journalist, but it seems they have developed a tremendous credibility issue. Josef Goebbels would be proud of the way our news media have become propaganda vehicles for all parties. I stopped watching network news years ago. Too depressing.
