When Obama presented his stimulus plan, it included a pledge to "create and save" a specific number of jobs by June 2009. June has arrived and the reality looks nothing like the promise. Unemployment has hit 9.4% - roughly 1.5% higher than the "8% and dropping" predicted in the blitz of "buy my bill" out of the White House 6 months ago. The administration is now focused on those "saved jobs." How are these accounted for? How do they idenitify what *is* saved and what would have been saved without the bill?
Those that support him in this still - how do you rationalize the promise to the reality when he's gotten his way across the board? How do you accept "saved jobs" no one can really quantify as acceptable? Does it not bother you that unemployment is still rising despite the promises of this pork-bill?
and where, or where, is the media on this? Why are they NOT calling him to the carpet on it?!?!

no, I'm not surprised nor am I rationalize anything President Obama does - it's not nice to assume things about people.
