At this juncture, it’s amusing to see anyone naive enough to presume that Obama was being honest with us in making this pledge. If we know he was flat-out lying (the number of Americans who do not realize this shrinks every day), what’s the point of even measuring reality against pie-in-the-sky promises?
Wonder how many of those jobs were “filled” by census workers who are lucky to actually get to work and be paid.
heck, nancy pelosi promised 400,000 jobs “almost immediately” if obamacare passed
It’s about JOBS!
where da jobs, nancy?
and that is in addition to the millions of jobs created instantly according to Pelosi if healthcare passed!
Until it’s revised next month...
