President Obama turned the page on 100 days in office with an iffy boast about job creation and claims of fiscal prudence that are hard to square with his spending.

OBAMA: “We began by passing a Recovery Act that has already saved or created over 150,000 jobs.” from news conference.

THE FACTS: This assertion is dubious on several levels. For starters, the U.S. has lost more than 1.2 million jobs since Obama took office, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

  1. Even if there were a way to verify the bullshitter’s claim, the jobs would have been “saved or created” at around $10 million apiece … if my pre-coffee math is correct.

    Way to go, Barky!

  2. probably means the 150,000 democrats who have been hired here and there and everywhere

  3. I was thinking maybe counting the zars or what-ever you call them along with the White House staff that Obama has! I would bet that its all government employees that already had jobs, what you think?

  4. Federal non-defense employment is, in fact, scheduled to go up. The productive sector may be crippled, but the parasite classes will be doing swimmingly Under the O.
