Don't Know Much About Arithmetic

From the Boston Globe comes proof of our genius President's math abilities:

The [so-called stimulus] plan was divided into three parts. One-third of the money has gone to tax relief for families and small businesses. One-third of the money is cutting people's taxes. . . . Another third of the money in the Recovery Act has been for emergency relief that is helping folks who've borne the brunt of this recession. . . . So that's the second half. First half, tax relief. Second half, support for individuals, small businesses, and states that had fallen on hard times. The last third of the Recovery Act--and that's what we're going to talk about here today--is for investments  . . ."--Barack Obama, Aug. 5
