Jobs according to Obama

In an effort to justify the spending of $780 billion on a stimulus package that was supposed to create jobs the Obama boys have begun talking about how many jobs the stimulus money has "saved". So far, they are claiming some 640,000 jobs were saved. Nobody believes this, but now we are reading some things behind the numbers. What they did was send a form to everyone who got stimulus money and asked them to send back an indication of how many jobs were created or saved. One shoe store got about $900 to send some boots to the Army Corps of Engineers. They claimed this order for some 9 pairs of boots saved some 9 jobs.

Other specious examples are given in the Wall Street Journal.
