Kermit the Frog established his legacy convincing millions of impressionable youth that "it's not easy being green." Unfortunately for the once famous frog, the Obama Administration has made poor Kermit look like a liar and burst the generational myth – apparently, it is a whole lot easier to be green than Kermit would have had us all believe.

In a June 6 hearing to delve into exactly how the Administration comes up with all those green jobs they claim to have saved-or-created, Rep. Darrell Issa, Chairman of the House Government Oversight and Reform Committee probed the essential question, "Just what qualifies and gets counted as a green job?"

 

Above is the video of the jaw-dropping exchange of the dialogue between Chairman Issa, Josh Galvin, the Acting Commissioner for the Bureau of Labor Statistics and Jane Oates, Assistant Secretary for Employment and Training as reported by The Daily Caller. As you'll see in the video, the Obama Administration takes "creative accounting" to an entirely new level.
