CBS Claims White House Fudging Numbers On Stimulus Jobs

Courtesy of News Busters

First Campbell Brown calls BS on the White House on the FOX controversy, now CBS challenges the Obama administration on jobs created by the stimulus package. Whoa...dude!! What's up with that? Are we suddenly living in a parallel universe?

I see the nimrods in the Obama administration not content in believing the Chavez formula for dictatorship and stolen elections in Venezuela could be applied in Honduras, have brokered a deal to re-install Zelaya back as president. Yes Zelaya whose buddies include Chavez, Castro, Morales and Ahmadinejad. Yes that Zelaya where counter to Honduran constitution wanted to run for a second term. Per the Honduran constitution and popular opinion, he was legally removed. Don't the Obama idiots realize that Chavez changed the Venezuelan constitution through stolen elections that now make him "El Presidente Para Vida." This is exactly the path Zelaya wants to take. Smart diplomacy; that was going to be the Obama administration trademark they told us. More like el loco.

Whoa is right. obama may have sealed his fate when he went after FOX the way he did. Maybe the networks are going to finally start doing there job after the better part of a year. Though I have my doubts.

It takes either huge balls or small brains to even attempt this kind of a spin.

(Maybe even a little bit of both)

Sorry; I see my above post should have been in the weekend open comment section. I swear at 4:10 PM I was not drinking.

That is such a foxnews style report too. 'Breaking news!!! The stimulus report has incidental errors in the data! Shocking! How could Barrack Obama let this happen! Didn't he verify every line or the report? No? The bastard! We've found 300 job errors out of 300,000 jobs claims! You see we've shown that the numbers are 0.1% off!"

What's the issue just because these figures were generated from the Obama department of SWAG:





These numbers track perfectly with unemployment only reaching 8%. I mean who could debate these numbers?? These are generated from firm scientific data like those from the department of Global Warming!! Get in-line birthers.

They know as well as anybody that stating "jobs saved" is in itself an attempt at getting away with inexact estimates, or in this likely case... wildly inaccurate. I'd love to see them break down how many were "created" vs how many were "saved"... and provide details for all.

I'm sure they'll get right on that

Well this is cute...

the White House "can't tell the difference between jobs “saved,” and jobs “created” by the $787 billion stimulus package." How incredibly convenient for them.

Best line for the link:
“there’s no data element in any government data set that is absolutely precise.”

(I truly needed that laugh on a Monday, being stuck at work... sick & on codeine)
