    A job is a job.

    What does Mr. Fatto suggest instead? There's the same ol' same ol' from the WSJ: No offering of alternatives, just worst case scenarios and criticisms. Yawn.....

    Bye bye, pubs for at least the next decade.

    Oh, really??

    Wasn't it the leftist hero, Bubba Clinton, who disparaged the jobs created during Poppy Bush's term as "burger flipper" jobs??

    Yes, I believe it was.

    Funny how those "burger flippers" should now fall to their knees in gratitude, now that the douchebag occupying the White House has a (D) by his name.

    Mustn't forget all the 'measurable' jobs created under GW and the smashing he took regarding them. Here's a typical left wing blog post:

    Clinton wasn't disparaging the JOBS, he was criticizing the reclassification of burger flipping as "manufacturing" to make the job numbers appear more attractive. But that never happened anyway. Too embarrassing for whoever in the BA came up with that gem.

    And, BTW, how do we go about quantifying and calculating those mythical "saved jobs"???

    there is no way to count how many jobs were "saved".

    hell If I want to take Obama's advice, i could "save" $500,000 by not buying that Ferrari. if I don't buy 2, i have saved a million bucks.

    that's like my wife saying she got a $500 pair of shoes for free because they were 50% off and she paid for them with the $250 she saved.

    Democratic math, ain't it wonderful.

    Ask the Wall Street Journal. Surely they have the numbers to back up their theories. Or not.

    Here's a thought, since it's obama's claim that he "saved" those jobs why doesn't he show us his calculations?

    But this is another "If i say it enough times and have everyone in my administration say it enough times, the sheeple will think it's true" strategy.
