    2. The unemployment rate kept marching upward

  • Politifact.com reports on the President‟s claim of 150,000 jobs created or saved, saying it is “not much better than a guess presented as a fact.”

  • Associated Press analysis reveals that the 30,883 job count previously released by the Administration overstated the jobs created or saved. “The AP review found some counts were more than 10 times as high as the actual number of jobs; some jobs credited to the stimulus program were counted two and sometimes more than four times; and other jobs were credited to stimulus spending when none was produced.”
