How Many Jobs?

I’ll have more on Obama’s press conference last night later, but I first wanted to point out one of the most bald-faced, stupid lies he said:

“I especially want to thank Leader Reid, Speaker Pelosi, all of the members of Congress who worked so quickly and effectively to make this blueprint a reality.

This budget builds on the steps we’ve taken over the last 100 days to move this economy from recession to recovery and ultimately to prosperity.

We began by passing a Recovery Act that has already saved or created over 150,000 jobs and provided a tax cut to 95 percent of all working families.”

Reality begs to differ:

The US economy lost 598,000 jobs in January.
The US economy lost 706,000 jobs in February.
The US economy lost 742,000 jobs in March.

So, in other words Team Obama has lost 2,046,000 jobs and only created or saved 150,000 jobs.
It looks like Team Obama has some work to do.

Mostly, they need to work on telling the truth.

But, this is as predicted: there’s really no way to quantify ‘saved’ jobs, so Obama can make up whatever number he wants. The number of lost jobs is a bit harder to spin, as those are concrete and reported on a regular basis. Just don’t ask the media to do so, or to question The Obamessiah’s word on any of it. Problem solved!

There’s my two cents.


I'm a gun-owning, Bible-thumping, bitter clinger conservative in the heartland. You can disagree with me if you want (you do, after all, have a right to be wrong)...just don't be rude or stupid and we'll get along just fine! :)
