    Depending on the day he was speaking and what was on the Teleprompter, Obama's Teleprompter promised that the Stimulus (ACORN Funding) Bill would "Save or create" oh, I dunno 2, 3, 4 million jobs.

    Anyone have a tally?

    My poor next door neighbors do. A retired couple moved in last year into a smaller 3 bedroom home--today they have their adult kids & grandkids living with them because they lost their jobs & homes.

    Hmm--so no jobs saved or created for them----:cuckoo:

    Obama best hope his jobs creation lies work out for him because he's going to need a new job come the next Presidential election.

    Job Creation comes from job market creation. Without new business, technologies, and industries there will be no job creation. Additionally, taking jobs from one industry and shoving them over to another does not count either.

    i've asked this a bunch of times, but no one has ever been able to answer it

    That's just it as the statement was phrased there is no way to falsify the statement or to quantify it or to test it or evaluate. It was the usual leftist pie in the sky promise that said essentaiily nothing and meant even less.
