7. Regardless of the diagram fail, the whole thing is a lie

It says "as a candidate, Obama said". Obama never said anything like this. The only thing any of them ever point to was a staff report done BEFORE Obama took office that projected various unemployment levels depending on how much of a stimulus we could get.

As it turned out, the Republicans sabotaged the stimulus program, forcing Obama to throw in more than have of it as tax cuts, which are barely stimulative at all.

But how could a report written 30-60 days earlier know the exactly size and shape of the eventual stimulus?
