|Sure looks like it. The latest report on GDP was an astounding 5% gain in Q3. And, if the government hadn't overestimated—yes, you read that right—inflation, the economy would have grown at a 6.6% rate (using the Billion Prices Project data on inflation). That's some smokin' hot economy we have here.

Maybe Obama has found a new way to lie—just outsource the GDP report to the government of China!
