Show Us Those ‘Saved or Created’ Jobs, Mr. President

ProPublica, far from a right-wing source, looks at President Obama’s claim in Wednesday night’s news conference that the stimulus has created 150,000 jobs, and conclude it’s based on “guesswork. It turns out the feds don’t have a way to measure exactly how many jobs have been created or saved, so they use projections instead.”

When the president claims to have “saved or created” 150,000 jobs, I think the burden of proof ought to be on the administration, no?
