Obama Just Plain Makes up "150,000 Jobs" He's "Saved or Created" So Far; No One in Press Seems Curious of Provenance of This Curiously Unsupported Figure
— Ace

We're losing jobs at a seriously badwrong clip, but President Crazy-Talk assures us, without citing any support, that his Spendulus has already "saved or created" 150,000 jobs.

In related news, this blog has "saved or created" 600,000 jobs.

I have as much evidence for this "fun fact" as Obama.

I will be "saving or creating' additional jobs every day until the press actually gets around to questioning President Telebluffer about the color of the skies in his world.

These are my demands.

BTW, why is the press not asking about this while unemployment is actually increasing. Instead they are trying to spin by saying the "rate of change" of unemployment has stabilized.

LOL, next thing you know they'll employ calculus to explain why there is no problem.

8 Q.  President Obama, why do you keep that rabbit's foot in your pocket?
A.  Because it keeps grizzly bears away.
Q.  But there are no grizzlies in Washington, D.C.
A.  See?  It works.  If I didn't have this rabbit's foot, we'd be overrun by grizzlies.

IT is amazing that 600k jobless claims every week occur yet the press DIDNT EVEN ASK the ONE about his unsupportable, lying horseshit claim re 150K jobs "saved or created"

18 Cessna planning to cut an additional 2,000 jobs in the coming months, according to a letter sent out to employees by Chairman and CEO Jack Pelton on Thursday.

Combined with the previously announced reductions of 2,600 employees, Cessna will now be laying off at least 4,600 in 2009.

Of the cuts, 4,000 will come from Wichita, including the 500 layoffs announced in November and the 2,000 earlier this month, says Cessna Spokesman Doug Oliver. The company will also be letting go 200 people from its facility in Independence, Kan.

I wonder how those guys took the news of Obama's 150,000 success.

24 Here's the White House official lie re 150K jobs.  95K from road construction, 55K from increased consumer spending. 


But the road-building money in the stimulus bill should pay immediate dividends in forestalling worse joblessness in the months ahead, the White House maintains.

"Transportation projects that were once on hold are now starting up again as part of the largest new investment in America's infrastructure since President Eisenhower built the interstate highway system," the president said today, appearing alongside Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood.

Some of the jobs are attributable to direct spending by the government on roads, bridges, schools, and other infrastructure, the White House says.

Part of that is the $28 billion dedicated for highway construction, with the money allocated to states offering "shovel-ready" projects.

"It is also worth noting that jobs in highway construction tend to pay better than average," the White House said in a statement.

"The typical, or median hourly wage for all jobs in the economy was $15.10 in 2007," the White House said, citing Bureau of Labor statistics. "But for workers in the highway industry, the typical hourly wage was $18.31, a premium of over $3 per hour over the economy-wide median wage."

The government's direct spending on construction of new roads and repair of older roads will provide for work for those who could have lost it due to spending cuts, the White House says -- about 95,000 of the estimated jobs.

The secondary impact comes from what workers will have to spend on groceries, clothing and other goods, the White House maintains -- an impact that promises an estimated 55,000 jobs.

27 Here's the CNN version...absolutely no analysis, just blindly reporting the 150k claim as fact:

WASHINGTON (CNNMoney.com) -- In a prime-time news conference on Wednesday night, President Obama touted his efforts to rebuild the economy in his first 100 days in office, while also stressing that he's no fan of "meddling" in the private sector.

Obama began the press conference by noting his economic recovery plan has already saved or created 150,000 jobs.

When asked about the administration's intervention in the banking and auto industries, Obama emphasized several times that he's not interested in running private companies and is looking toward the long-term goal of getting the industries back on their feet.

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. Even if Obama's stimulus bill saved or created as many jobs as he says, that number is dwarfed by the number of recent job losses.

But Obama's number is murky, at best. The White House has not yet announced how it intends to count jobs created by the stimulus bill. Obama's number is based on a job-counting formula that his economists have developed but have not made public. Until that formula is announced --probably in the coming week or so -- there's no way to assess its accuracy.

Whatever the formula, economists who study job creation say it will require some creative math. That's because Obama has lumped "jobs saved" in with "jobs created." Even economists for organizations that stand to benefit from the stimulus concede it probably is impossible to estimate saved jobs because that would require calculating a hypothetical: how many people would have lost their jobs without the stimulus.

Yeah- road construction never, ever picks up dramatically in the Spring without a "stimulus" bill.  That every other freaking road, highway or goat path here in MN is under construction every year after Winter is over means nothing- this time it was all Obama's doing.

Unbelieveable- the press won't dare ask questions, letting him spew bullshit unchecked.  I'd ask how stupid he thinks people are, but then again he did manage to get himself elected, so I'm afraid we already know the answer.

In related news, this blog has "saved or created" 600,000 jobs.

Correction, Ace, it's 599,000 jobs deducting Adriana from the total saved or created.

Another trillion dollar goodwill mission in the middle east?
Like giving $1-billion to Hamas? And spending $4-trillion is okay while Bush's $1-trillion over 8 years is bad. Boy, that makes cents sense.

Fixing the disaster by doubling down would be more tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans. Or continue George Bush's policy.

I agree.  You see, people are making plans based on what the president says he wants to do.  You know, cap-and-trade, universal health care, hate crimes ($$$ for lawyers) bills, etc., etc.  They know it's a disaster for them and for the world economy, so they sock their money away in a mattress.  If Obama had lost the election, we would be looking at a very mild recession.  Perhaps we would even be even in a period of anemic growth by now.  Not likely with McCain, but maybe he gets an advisor who isn't stupid.

But here's the deal, honest cloud.  On July 24, 2009, the minimum wage is going up 70 cents to $7.55/hr.  One of two things will happen.  Either there will be massive unemployment due to automation or businesses just closing down or the Obamaflation will make that increase useless.  Either way, I wouldn't want to be in the White House when that hits the fan.

Obama was, you know, a Senator before he was elected. So he is both responsible for the current deficit (by his votes and support of bills that passed) and the current economy - for the same reason. He voted for and/or signed everything that is currently going on in this economy.

He didn't drop out of the sky. So don't be a retard, okay?

127 For eight years we heard the same mantra from the press: Gloomy economic figures released today, yadda yadda, concern about a looming recession. Oh, and those gloomy figures we told you about last month? They've been revised upward. And on a quick side note, all that doom and gloom about the figures from 3 months ago? Record growth. Sorry if that had you worried. Straight through a period of record growth. Because people saw no reason to worry so they kept spending. The economy was holding up. Right until the day Wall Street saw the election results and realized that the Zero had won. Then the market tanked, and people got genuinely worried. Not surprisingly, they looked at their bank accounts and teh damage to their 401k's and decided to cut back on spending. Naturally that, combined with the media's desire to do their part in creating Emmanuel's crisis only deepened the recession. When the Rahm tells the media to lighten up for the coming election cycle, and the market has shrunk to accomodate the available consumer spending, and consumers decide that they have padded their bank accounts enough to weather the worst that they expect to happen, things will turn around. I won't clain that Bush had no hand in this, but he just left the keys in the car. Obama is the one that's out on a joyride.

129 The truly scary thing about Obama is that he seems unaware of American history since 1968 or so. He doesn't seem aware that his brand of economics collapsed around the world. He seems unaware that Japan's "stimulus package" was an utter failure. He is oblivious that the Soviets collapses of their own gross economic mismanagement. He doesn't care that the European continent stagnated - indeed, is now in a demographic death spiral - because of socialism. He adamantly refuses to acknowledge that Roosevelt - if anything - exacerbated the Great Depression. I guess his Ivy League professors were too busy radicalizing him to teach him history. Sigh.

152 Well, here's four jobs Obama created - the board at Chrysler...but he fired the whole present board...so with Obama math that means?

By JIM KUHNHENN, Associated Press Writer Jim Kuhnhenn, Associated Press Writer – 1 hr 14 mins ago

WASHINGTON – In forcing a swift bankruptcy on Chrysler, President Barack Obama expanded the risk and reach of the presidency in the hope that the hidebound auto industry will find a way to remake itself.

The government's intervention with Chrysler LLC and General Motors Corp. has been far more intrusive than the way it has confronted troubled financial companies. The administration's influence now ranges from guaranteeing your brake pads to pushing for new products on the assembly line.

As Obama himself put it, "If the Japanese can design an affordable, well-designed hybrid, then, doggone it, the American people should be able to do the same."

Despite an additional $8 billion taxpayer infusion into Chrysler, the president and his advisers say the administration has no desire to be in the auto business. And they say they don't intend to micromanage the company.

But as part of Thursday's arrangement, the government will be an investor in the new Chrysler company, and the Treasury Department will select four of its new directors, all of them presumably sympathetic with the White House's vision of what the car of the future should be.

Asslips, if you ask Paul Krugman if he supports Obama's policies he'll say yes.

But if you ask Krugman if he agrees socialist economic policies will spur economic growth he'd say no.

Bottom-Up Economic Growth. Remember that. It will be the name of the cause of the next Great Depression.

164 ABC story on the CIA.

Yes, unless these guys got their wives a plum junket job with the CIA and their wives published a NYT op-ed under their own name and a hostile member of the Obama administration leaked their names to ABC, this would indeed be worse than Valerie Plame.

Especially since they're giving information on where the men live, not to mention their photos.

I wonder if ABC has some liability here if somebody acts out against them.  If I were on a jury, I'd vote yes.

I abandoned a successful legal career to become a business owner.  Closed on 12/06/07, and took over the business (cleaning services).  I had tired of working/representing/opposing with assholes.

My employees are salt of the earth, god-fearing, hard working people.  Given that I have tried to keep everyone employed while not having taken a paycheck myself since November. 

I have not laid anyone off, nor reduced their pay, but I am the one that is suffering. 

I'm in the position where I need to liquidate a portion of my 401(k) to maintain operations and, hopefully, ride out the recession.  I'm willing to do this because I believe in my business and want to take care of my employees.

Call me an idiot if you choose, but in the end I believe in capitalism and will prevail.

I love the whole Bush Bush Bush Bush Bush  thing you liberals do. (Thats the whole strategy right Bush=Unpopular so keep making Bush=conservative) well in reality Bush=gone. I by the way didn't vote for him either time. To liberal for me. I knew those defense cuts he proposed would be trouble. Along with his spendaholic ways. But how did we solve that problem, with a worse spendaholic, that decides to make the same mistakes that got us pelted. Sure print money, spend it on programs, put the whole country to work for the government. Roosevelt did two things with his method for "combating" the depression, prolonged it, and created a dependent class that would vote democratic for decades. That's what it's really about isn't it. You can admit it. No one can see your real name. It's not about our economy getting better, peoples lives being better, it's about a permenant majority so you can push absolute economic equality, just like the Cubans, Chinese, and North Koreans have.

"You're a joke. Clinton being offered OBL has been debunked years ago. It's total bullshit." Maybe you should go edit Wikipedia then

"The Sudanese government offered to arrest and extradite Bin Laden as well as to provide the United States detailed intelligence information about growing militant organizations in the region, including Hezbollah and Hamas.[101] Though U.S. authorities knew of bin Laden's involvement in bombings on an American embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, they rejected the offer."

220 Erwa claims that he offered to hand bin Laden over to the United States. Key American players – President Bill Clinton, then-National Security Adviser Sandy Berger and Director of Counterterrorism Richard Clarke among them – have testified there were no "credible offers" to hand over bin Laden. The 9/11 Commission found "no credible evidence" that Erwa had ever made such an offer. On the other hand, Lawrence Wright, in his Pulitzer Prize-winning "The Looming Tower," flatly states that Sudan did make such an offer. Wright bases his judgment on an interview with Erwa and notes that those who most prominently deny Erwa's claims were not in fact present for the meeting. Wright and the 9/11 Commission do agree that the Clinton administration encouraged Sudan to deport bin Laden back to Saudi Arabia and spent 10 weeks trying to convince the Saudi government to accept him. One Clinton security official told The Washington Post that they had "a fantasy" that the Saudi government would quietly execute bin Laden. When the Saudis refused bin Laden’s return, Clinton officials convinced the Sudanese simply to expel him, hoping that the move would at least disrupt bin Laden’s activities. Much of the controversy stems from claims that President Clinton made in a February 2002 speech and then retracted in his 2004 testimony to the 9/11 Commission. In the 2002 speech Clinton seems to admit that the Sudanese government offered to turn over bin Laden:

And tell me wingnuts, please tell me.

What the fuck does your false accusation against Clinton have to do with Bush ignoring the warnings and allowing 3,000 to be slaughtered?

And why does my neighbor always make his kids come inside when I'm out walking my dog?

Posted by: honest cloud at April 30, 2009 06:56 PM (hOPQH)

One, you still haven't come up with any evidence that Bush was warned of anything more than a desire by terrorists to attack, not an imminent plot. Your reference to Sandy "Socks" Burglar is hilarious.

Two - Ace, this troll's profligate use of profanity in anger and not germaine to humor or the point should get him a direct warning

The humorlessness of the far left has always struck me as one of its greatest weaknesses. People like to laugh, they like to smile, they like to be joyful, and an awful lot of hardened leftists seem almost utterly incapable of doing any of these things. It's as if they have all taken a pledge that there should be no laughter until the revolution, or some such shit. No positivity, no hope, no happiness so long as people are still poor and exploited, and victimized by United States militarism, or performing as wage slaves for global capital, or eating meat, or driving cars. That's why the left is so weak. ex: Duh Cloud.
It's as if much of the left has become co-dependent with despondency, addicted to its own isolation, and enamored of its moral purity and unwillingness to work with mere wingnuts. In the name of ideological asceticism, they spurn the hard work of movement building and snicker at those foolish enough to not understand or appreciate their superior philosophical constructs, and then act shocked when their movements and groups accomplish exactly nothing.

207 comments and counting...

I was wondering at first if honest cloud was simply chumming the waters trying to be funny. Now I don't think so.

He's an incurious idiot. Not ignorant, an idiot.

He's apparently forgotten (along with some R's) that his precious dem's have essentially controlled congress since 2004, via the fillibuster in the senate.

The situation that we find ourselves immersed in was caused by Congress as a whole, not by a single party. Or person.

I think it was Bismark who said that politics was the art of the possible...if you don't have the votes, it ain't possible. And, if you're the president, you deal with what's possible, not what you desire, unless you're BHO.

Then you simply deal with signing shit and doing paperwork and stuff. And let other people tote the bale, so to speak. Like Pelosi and Reid...so for you can blame them later if things don't work out like you said you planned.

So, honest cloud, google short selling and naked short selling in July of 2008, and come back and tell us after study that it's G. W's fault we're in the trouble we're in.

'Cause we're stupid effing wingnuts here, we are.

Let's see some proof that he ignored a warning which consisted of, and I quote, "OBL determined to attack America". Hop to it, twat, I don't have all night. Proof. You know, like the kind that has been presented to you, repeatedly, that Clinton did in fact turn down multiple opportunities to take OBL and you continue to pretend doesn't exist.

It takes a rare kind of imbecility to blame "Bush" for the financial crisis caused by 25 years of government meddling in the mortgage markets.  Dishonest Clod seems not to know anything about the repeal of Glass-Stegal, about mark-to-market imposed by Sarbanes-Oxley, about the Fed's loose money, about The Community Reinvestment Act, about Barney Frank and Chris Dodd (and Barack Obama) taking huge campaign donations from Freddie and Fannie) while pushing back attempts to rein in their criminal management and their unsustainable lending practices, and all the other shenanigans our political "masters" engaged in to lead us to this crisis

Nahhhh...it's all "Bush".

251 President Bill Clinton, then-National Security Adviser Sandy Berger and Director of Counterterrorism Richard Clarke among them – have testified there were no "credible offers" to hand over bin Laden.

Right because after the fact. Parties (politicians) who could have averted the attack would jump up and say "OOOPS MY BAD WE HAD OUR CHANCE BUT I PASSED IT UP"


So what your saying is. A man who had very little to gain claims to have offered Bin Laden to the US. And those that had a lot to gain by denying it denied it. And you call this credible argument? Go fight it out with Wiki then. Their sources look pretty solid to me. Even if the 9/11 commission (government commissions so reliable near infallible in fact)  found in the neutral.

Bush did contribute to that problem with his moderate stance on defense. But I put the blame on the guy who spent eight years doing nothing not eight months. If Bush had been more conservative off the get go he MIGHT have had a chance to see this coming.

They do hate that they lost to Bush twice.  I've even seen them try to claim they beat him this last election.  When you ask them what the hell they mean by that, they say, oh we beat Bush.  We beat his kind.   (They beat another guy who lost to Bush, but facts, you know).  More comedy stylings from the angry left.

253 >>The FBI is conducting approximately 70 full-field investigations throughout the U.S. that it considers bin Laden-related. CIA and the FBI are investigating a call to our embassy in the UAE in May saying that a group or bin Laden supporters was in the U.S. planning attacks with explosives. Oh I see. So the FBI and the CIA, which as you probably don't know, work for the president, were investigating leads. This constitutes ignoring in your feeble little mind? You're not worth the effort.

256 Dude, everyone here is perfectly aware of the contents of that memo.  In fact, you do your own cause a disservice by actually posting the contents.  The correct leftist tactic is to ONLY post the title, so as to con people into thinking that it actually contained any sort of specific, actionable intelligence.  When you actually post the content, it becomes obvious that there was no actionable intelligence in there whatsoever.

Cause only a complete dribbling moron didn't -already know-, without that memo, that "Osama Bin Laden wants to attack the US".  This was only news to dipshits like you.

On the other hand, we have it straight from Clinton's mouth that he got that offer of Bin Laden, and you continue to deny it, despite the fact that we have it on freaking audio tape.  This makes you not even worth talking to.

To the AoSHQ mod team:  Once upon a time, I said "let the troll stay, he's fun".  I hereby withdraw this request.  This guy is intellectually dishonest to the extreme, and that's not fun, that's just obnoxious.

Only fools believe Stalin didn't wish us well.

We created Bin Laden and if only we had listened to Clinton he'd be dead.

John Kerry was an honest to good war hero.

The fact that Clinton reformed intelligence so effectively that the US couldn't deal with Bin Laden is proof positive that Bush is evil.

266 In just three months Obama claimed he created or saved 150,000 jobs.
In just three months Obama saved 150,000 x 3 months jobs.

3 months = 1/4 a working year.
50 working years = a working life.

So Obama, by his self-acclimation,just saved 750 working lives.

Posted by: Druid at April 30, 2009 04:16 PM (nFeDb)

267 Obama's first term deficit (never mind budget) is on order of $1.8 Trillion.

40 working hours / working week.
50 working weeks / working year.
50 working years / working life.

Gives us 100,000 working hours / working life.

Minimum wage is currently $6.55 per hour.

Gives us $655,000 per working life.

Posted by: Druid at April 30, 2009 04:20 PM (nFeDb)

268 Based upon a deficit of $1.8T / $655,000 per working life we get 2,740,892 working lives. A return of 0.03% on the working life, or 3664 working lives extinguished for every one gained.

@117: "Let's face it: Law school has no dissertation, no mathematics, only 3 years and no competition from foreign students and their subsidized undergraduate educations."

You know why there are relatively fewer foreign students in law school, genius?  Law varies from nation to nation.  Unless a foreign student plans on either living in the US for the rest of his days, or perhaps working for an overseas business that has to regularly deal with US law, there's no point in going to law school *here*.  They'd be better served staying home and learning the law that they actually will have to practice.  Do you also wonder why there are so few French people coming here to major in French?

Even simple minded antelopes like Honest Cloud get it - you don't like lawyers.  Fair enough, I don't either, and I have to work with them every day.  But give it a rest already; you're not even beating a dead horse anymore, you're just beating some dessicated bones and residual cytoplasm.
