White House Says 1 Million Jobs Saved or Created By Stimulus

o-lolAccording to the Associated Press,  the Ministry of Truth White House said today that the Obama administration’s recovery efforts have saved or created more than one million jobs so far. That should be great comfort to the more than 14 million people still unemployed.

The article also states (emphasis added):

The report is certain to draw criticism because the U.S. economy has actually lost about 2.5 million jobs since the stimulus was signed in February. Because the White House number is based on economic models, it’s impossible to say for certain what that number would have been without the stimulus.

Well, I guess so. It’s also impossible to say for certain what the number is WITH the stimulus, as the whole guesstimate is based on computer models rather than reality.
