The Obama administration is bent on trying to fulfill at least one promise about jobs saved or created. But is this the ethical and correct way to go about those counts?

No, it wouldn't create a dent if those were the only jobs. The problem with their numbers is that when they lay these people off they end up rehiring them and then calling it another created job. Even though it's the same job, they rehire over and over again and those numbers start to add up. This whole saved or created jobs thing is just a ruse. They are finding ways to fudge the numbers and they get away with it on a large scale because most people aren't going to do the work to find out where these jobs are. They just think 'Hey, that's great that Obama created *enter whatever number* jobs!', when in reality they only created a fraction of public sector jobs which don't create government revenue.
