Why does Obama have to blow somke up our ***?

Mr. Obama has an ingenious approach to job losses: He describes them as job gains. For example, last week the president claimed that 150,000 jobs had been created or saved because of his stimulus package. He boasted, "And that's just the beginning."

 

However, at the beginning of January, 134.3 million people were employed. At the start of May, 132.4 million Americans were working. How was Mr. Obama magically able to conjure this loss of 1.9 million jobs into an increase of 150,000 jobs?

 

As my former White House deputy press secretary Tony Fratto points out on his blog, the Labor Department does not and cannot collect data on "jobs saved." So the Obama administration is asking that we accept its "clairvoyant ability to estimate," and the White House press corps has let Mr. Obama's ludicrous claim go virtually unchallenged.

There are websites that keep track of the jobs that were created from the stim money. All of them added up is his figure, pretty simple. He sees it as those jobs would not have started without the stim money so they were all created, while many other jobs were being lost elsewhere.. The overall effect is still more lost then gained unfortunately, but good news came out today saying total people collecting went down for the 1st time in months...

Why he has to blow smoke up our arses is because they packed a bill full of every spending wet dream imaginable and called it a stimulus package and now they need to make people think there was some benefit from all that crazy spending so they don't get kicked out of office next time there's an election.

Maybe you can explain how Obama calculates how many jobs his stimulus package saved... and why was "created" even put in there if only these mythical "saved" jobs are the rationale behind the statement.

 

It's political smoke and mirrors - not much different than a wife coming home with maxed out credit cards and 100 pairs of shoes after a shopping spree and reassuring her husband that it's cool because she saved a lot of money by only buying shoes that were on sale.

View PostNo Dude would rather believe Obama has saved jobs

 

 

You are absolutely right! I do believe it because it's the truth, and comprehension of the subject just takes a little common sense.

 

The government decided to spend gobs of funny money. It undoubtly saved/created some jobs.

 

For instance, my Dad is a contractor, got in on a couple stimulus projects, and is no longer looking at laying off employees.

 

This is really simple stuff, so long as you're not a rabid partisan.
