Barack Obama (Employment Specialist Extraordinaire)

"The goal here, uh, is that we're gonna create or save 600,000 jobs over the next 100 days."

- In honor of Labor Day, I'm revisiting a comment Obama made on or around his '100 Day' extravaganza, celebrating the greatest 100 days in the history of the U.S. presidency, of course.

**Obama's 100th day was April 30, so lets see how many jobs he's "created or save(d)" since then: May = 345,000 jobs lost, June = 443,000 jobs lost, July = 247,000 jobs lost, August = 216,000 jobs lost...I could be wrong, but it looks like about 1,251,000 jobs have been lost since Barack promised to "create or save 600,000."

That's pretty bad; even by Liberal standards of Utopian math.

You should notice job losses are going down, however. Only in the 200,000's in the past couple months. This should be a positive, right? Nope...It's only when the losses disappear, and gains take place that we can claim to have legitimately positive jobs data. Only a complete liar (or a Democrat politico) could claim anything less than job increases are a positive.

Currently the U.S. has a 9.7% unemployment rate by definition, but really it's over 16% when those who've given up are counted...It's going to be years before Obama can honestly say 600,000 jobs have been "created or save(d)," and if he's truly being honest he'll admit he had nothing to do with any of them. I'm not going to hold my breath waiting for such honesty, however.**
