Last week the White House issued a statement that its economic stimulus has saved 150,000 jobs. Evil genius Karl Rove today points out that this claim comes even as total US employment dropped by 1.9 million jobs between January and May.
Gentle readers may recall the rare SWNIDish prognostication that just such an outrageous and unverifiable claim would be made by our youthful President.
Of course, all this claiming of jobs saved comes even before an appreciable amount of the stimulus has been spent. One can just as easily assume, therefore, that even more jobs would have been "saved" had the administration elected to do nothing.
