National Unemployment Numbers Not Showing Much Stimulus Impact

Evil genius Karl Rove is keeping track of how the actual unemployment numbers compare to the Obama administration’s claim that 3.67 million jobs would be created from stimulus spending. According to Rove’s chart, 319,565 jobs were supposed to be created by now; instead the economy has shed 1.3 million jobs since then.

Of course, remember Obama used that “save or create” dodge, so that his promises can’t be declared horsepuckey until national employment of all Americans falls below 3.67 million jobs.
