Jobs "Saved or Created" to be renamed "Created or Saved"
Well, not really. But Obama is finally getting rid of the idiotic phrase/category of jobs "Saved or Created" by porkulus/stimulus money. [Say, how are we liking the other new phrases he's given us, like "man-caused disaster" and "overseas contingency operation" so far, anyway?]
Just how fraudulent is Obama's method of counting jobs as "saved or created", you ask? Well, you see, he likes to count jobs that already exist as jobs that he personally "Saved or Created".
In other words, if the project is being funded with stimulus dollars – even if the person worked at that company or organization before and will work the same place afterwards – that’s a stimulus job…I, like the rest of us, learned from the mainstream media that Obama Created the Earth and the United States, and Golf Carts, but I'm now even more impressed by his powers. This power to create something that already exists is, frankly, a phenomenon I hope the scientists at the CERN particle accelerator will test soon, as soon as they're done locating the imaginary and non-existent Congressional Districts into which millions of dollars in real Stimulus Money actually went. (Word is they hope to create the first man-made black holes there, but no one has the heart to tell them that our Congress beat them to it almost 100 years ago when it passed the Federal Reserve Act).
Meanwhile, the Obama Administration is saying the Stimulus Money had a "truly stunning effect" and created 2 million jobs, and it has "done exactly what we anticipated it would do".
So, you anticipated 10% unemployment, while at the same time promising that the Stimulus Bill would prevent unemployment from going over 8%? At this point, the notion that the destruction caused by Obama's economic policies is not intentional is looking more ridiculous every day. If our citizens do exactly what I anticipate they will do, it'll be fun to re-calibrate the Democrats' sense of what is "truly stunning" this November, won't it?
