Skip to comments.CBS Says White House Is Fudging Stimulus Jobs Numbers (CBS calls Obama a Liar? Oh the irony)
Posted on 10/30/2009 11:03:46 AM PDT by amoktime
When Katie Couric and the folks at CBS start doubting what the Administration says about how effective February's economic stimulus package was, you know President Obama is in trouble. "Well, Katie, that report is going to claim that the stimulus has already created or saved hundreds of thousands of jobs, but if the administration`s first effort at counting stimulus jobs is any guide, tomorrow`s numbers could be hard to believe."

WH manipulation of jobs created or saved = porn’s version of fluffers...
Time for the White House to go to war with CBS.
They have already gone to war with Fox and Edmunds.com.
Somewhere, Richard Nixon is smiling.
What??!! You mean the www.recovery.gov report of 159 jobs having been “created or saved” in Nevada is an overstatement? I guess the 190,000 unemployed Nevadans will have to wait a little longer than I thought for things to turn around ...
I’m constantly baffled at the notion of a “saved job”. If the person is still employed, or has their job, and never lost it — how in the world do they possibly figure out that they would have lost their job if stimulus money or other Obama action wasn’t there. Maybe other factors kept them employed. Please, we’re not that stupid.
You, sir, have grasped the nut of the problem most precisely. The whole issue of “what is the criteria that defines a ‘saved’ job?” is never defined, so the Obama administration gets to simply make up numbers.
Financial skeptics were onto this issue way back in February, when the stimulus projections were being thrown about...
I guess anyone who still has a job after 10 months of Obamanomics can be counted as a “saved job”.
All Hail Zero!! /s
They lack hard data.
It takes one to know one.
The WH enemies keeps growing....
The WH enemies list keeps growing....
10 Months Lost Jobs, STILL are Bush's Blame
Saved Jobs Obama's? Nice Try But Pretty Lame
Barack (The Liar) Obama
The term “liar” is SO unseemly. I much prefer “unctuous prevaricator”.
CBS suddenly grew a pair ?
Maybe they have been watching Glenn Beck compare the tyrannical moves of Obama and realize we are all about to fall to a dictatorship.
The real question, can they undo the damage they have done?
More than likely, they are watching fox ratings soar and their own plummet and they are abandoning a sinking ship, before the rest of their viewers realize they are completely irrelevant.
From the "learn something new every day" dept., Fluffer.
hahahahaha! You made his nose match his ears!
Charlie Osgood has been acting smarmy lately...
“how in the world do they possibly figure out that they would have lost their job if stimulus money or other Obama action wasnt there”
That was exactly my concern when the stimulus was being passed...there is no way to account for it, so “technically” you can’t be wrong.
Too late-I’ll stay with Fox.
CBS doubts authority? Not possible... they are the ultimate liberal butt kissers.
MAYBE the Media is waking up to the fact that THEY WILL BE UNDER OBAMACARE, TOO!! Morley Safer, Mike Wallace. Leslie Stahl, Roker....even Perky Katie are LONG IN THE TOOTH.....look out, DEATH PANELS are coming your way, too folks!!
Wow. That would be huge if this is truly a conscious effort to "be like Fox". There is no way the Obama presidency could survive an objective news media.
Where are the jobs saved with stimulus money?
Billions to AIG,billions to save General Motors,(about $130,000 per worker) billions to banks,and on and on.Acorn almost got eight million, but a couple bright young kids exposed them!
There are a lot of people, esp. small business owners in sales and service who used to have a full time income, but now have a part time income because of the bad economy. I’ve not seen any statistics which take this into account.
