Candidates and politicians love to throw around facts and statistics. But how can they all be true? The spurious stat slinging was super-evident during last week's Republican debate. Mitt Romney accused John McCain of using the "wrong data" regarding job creation and fee increases while he was governor. The argument sounded very convincing — until Factcheck.org ran the numbers. It looks like McCain was right after all.
