    White House credits stimulus with up to 2M jobs

    Obama highlighting White House report saying up to 2m jobs created or saved by stimulus

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama is trumpeting a new White House estimate that his top economist calls "stunning": His stimulus plan has already created or saved up to 2 million jobs.

    The analysis is part of the administration's quarterly report to Congress on the controversial $787 billion package of spending and tax cuts he signed weeks after taking office.

    Obama planned to highlight the report Wednesday during a visit to a Lanham, Md., training center for union electricians that specializes in "green" technology.

    Republicans have denounced the stimulus plan as an expensive flop,

    More lies from Obama and his totally corrupt administration. His free money dole out to the Fat Cats may have saved some jobs, but it most certainly did not create two million jobs. Obama is so damned corrupt that he can lie openly and keep a straight face. I watched him, and his eyes and facial muscles gave the impression that he honestly believed what he was saying. What a lying sack of shit.

    They're smoking crack on this one. There's just no way to make that kind of estimate in any reliable manner. They're making a guess and there's no way of testing it. I doubt if many economists or statisticians take this seriously.

    In other news, the bumper coconut crop this year was credited to the extra vestal virgin thrown into the volcano last spring.

    "Up to 2 Million Jobs Created" could also mean that "Zero Jobs Have Been Created".

    Just in case you didn't know.

    What next...?

    ...And the White House Press Secretary Gibbs came out today and said they created 3 trillion jobs today with a $1.85 found in Obama's pocket because he is just so godlike.
