Obama Cites Re-Hiring of 25 Police Recruits as Proof the Stimulus is Working

I saw this and nearly laughed out loud. Fox News.com has a story posted about stagnant or lower wages to be expected (no surprise there) that had this little tid bit in it:

While aknowledging an "astounding" number of job losses in February, President Obama told critics of his $787 billion economic recovery plan Friday that it is saving jobs and said, "I know we did the right thing." He suggested that critics talk to 25 police recruits in Ohio's capital city who owe their jobs to stimulus spending and "talk to the teachers who are still able to teach our children because we passed this plan."

I knew it would only be a mater of time till the Libs tide the stimulus into the "it's for the children" mantra.

Here is more of Obama's fuzzy math at work:

News that 651,000 jobs were lost in February brings to "an astounding 4.4 million" the number of jobs lost since the recession began, Obama said.

But Obama touted the 114th police recruit class as proof that the stimulus plan, which drew scant Republican support in Congress, is paying dividends.

Now I am no mathematician, but if we have lost 4.4 million jobs since the begging of the recession and he cites the 25 police cadets that have been rehired (the story states that they were laid off in Jan before they could even start patrolling) then according to his own words he still has a net loss of 4,299,975 jobs. Now I know he mentioned teachers too, so lets add in all the teachers who became unemployed last year, which is 185,000. You would still have a net loss of 4,114,975 jobs.

Yet Obama said this stimulus package would create or save between 3 to 4 million.

So President Obama, not only has your stimulus bill not saved or created the 3 to 4 million jobs you claimed it would, but it continues to loose jobs and now will cause wages to go down. Why is this so, because this bill is not and never was a stimulous bill. It was a pork laden product wrapped in a socialistic agenda.

I urge everyone to attend the closest Tax Day Tea party you can and tell these pompus fools running Congress and the White House that we the people still own this country and like our forefathers before us we will stand up for our rights and demand to heard!!!

1. Turns out those recruits were in the Police Academy well before the stimulus bill was passed.

The great misrepresentation being foisted on the public is that these stimulus funds are permanent. They are not, and as soon as the funding disappears, the states and cities will be left holding the bag.

2. Hey,

Isn't anyone aware these are goverment jobs. What has that got to do with assisting the private sector. You can create governement jobs all day and if that what he is counting on as his 3.5 million jobs created or saved ,God help us if we let him get away with that. Anyone ever hear of CETA?
