What's that sound you hear...

It's the rush of air generated by all of that spin coming from the Department of the Army. Two weeks ago it was announced that the Army would delay publishing the May recruiting numbers for 10 days. I speculated that this was done so that they could figure out how to spin some disastrously low numbers. Guess what, right again.

CNN has a story out today with the May numbers in it. Here's the the best they could come up with in two weeks; the Army "fell about 25 percent short of its target" Gee, that's not so bad is it... Right until you learn that they revised their target down from 8,050 to 6,700

Let's do a little math. Ok, they sign up 5,025 people and their goal was 8,050 that means that they really fell 38% short of the mark. This administration wouldn't know the truth if it bit it in the ass. Don't expect the public to get excited or even notice though, the lead story on CNN this morning is guess what... another cute, missing white woman!
