With the release of the government jobs report, Joe Biden was out front touting that, despite rapidly rising unemployment, and millions of jobs lost, not to fear, that in fact, we have actually SAVED a million jobs. 600,000 thousand plus from stimulus money and 400,000 from tax breaks (?? Really, who got tax breaks?).
This is the ultimate Orwell. We have less jobs, but we saved jobs…. (yes I know the math and the O mans’ argument. Doesn’t change the absurdity of the statistics).
Btw, as an aside… rare kudos to the President for his trip to Dover. Anyone that criticizes a President for paying his respect to American heroes, even if it is for political gain, just doesn’t get it. It was nice to see Obama look at acknowledge those that actually HAVE sacrificed for us all.
