Obama Scam: Says Success to be Measured by Jobs Created or "Saved"

Using language to mislead is not a new political tactic; terms like "invest" instead of spend; or "generate revenue" instead of tax. Liberals are masters of double-speak but Conservatives play this game too. Bush used the term "compassionate conservatism" instead of big government Republican. Many conservatives were offended; compassionate conservatism as opposed to what? Regular mean-spirited conservatism?

Now we have a new term invented by the Obama camp; jobs "created or saved." There was a time when economic success or failure was measured by the amount of jobs created or lost during an administration. Obama has just invented a new politically expedient measurement: The amount of jobs "saved".
Of course, it's impossible to really measure how many jobs are "saved", but if you can claim that you have "saved" jobs, well that's almost as good as having created jobs. So even if unemployment goes up by say... 100,000 jobs lost, Obama can then turn around and take credit for having "saved" 200,000 jobs. Wow! The man cannot lose. Maybe Bush should consider claiming credit for having "saved" 60,000,000 jobs over the past few years?

Below is a video of Obama's weekly address. Listen carefully as he lowers expectations by talking about creating "or SAVING" jobs. I partcularly liked his initiative to put energy efficient light bulbs in schools as a jobs creator/saver:


  1. Ugh, I'm having flashbacks to the nineties, defining "I did not" and "that woman" and "is."

    I forgot how much posturing actually goes in to leftist responses to anything and everything. The liberal illuminati need to publish a handbook for translating what their euphemisms actually mean for Susie the Nurse and Joe the Plumber.

  2. Even Republican ex-Governor Ryan (now prisoner Ryan) couldn't get the I-53 highway extension built in northern Illinois. If Obama manages to get it built (through some wetlands, by the way) then he can truly be considered to be a miracle worker!

  3. You want 10 millon jobs 1yr jail time min 5yrs max 20,000 dollar fine per illegal.there would be a lot of job openings.Is obama going to give these jobs to illegals yep they vote

  4. It's amature hour. It's 'fake it until you make it' time.

  5. this is a fantasy idea in the virtual USA.cost apart, the temporary jobs, no doubt will produce spending in non-essential things that will melt away.Obama should be careful in upgrading the national highways- specially the Interstate highways.If taxpayers are burdened, they should get back some thing. There are hundreds of interstate highways that charge user fee for using segments or NY state highway, which charges TOLL FEE, though it has ben paid off. All these highways must be made National FREEWAYS, no one exempted.If federal money is used, TOLLS should be removed. In Californis, all the Freeways are free with out any toll. Intra state highways are the domain of the states. Tax payers do not back away from this demand.

  6. I'd like to Post a Comment

    Did you hear the good news? Obama is making it better for us already! Most people don't realize how much money there is out there. During economic times like this, there is more money to be had than ever. Because of the bailouts and economy, lenders are bending over backwards to bail you out too. Believe it or not, there is people getting tons of cheap money nowdays to start businesses, buy homes, pay off debt, and more. Bailout is for YOU
