More jobs have been lost with the “stimulus bill” than Obama said we would lose if it wasn’t passed.

Posted by iusbvision on June 10, 2009

Its true. Now the administration is coming out with new rosey job forcasts because the old ones proved to be a joke, read about it HERE in the Wall Street Journal. Here is an exerpt:

“You created a situation where you cannot be wrong,” said the Montana Democrat. “If the economy loses two million jobs over the next few years, you can say yes, but it would’ve lost 5.5 million jobs. If we create a million jobs, you can say, well, it would have lost 2.5 million jobs. You’ve given yourself complete leverage where you cannot be wrong, because you can take any scenario and make yourself look correct.”

Now, something’s wrong when the president invokes a formula that makes it impossible for him to be wrong and it goes largely unchallenged. It’s true that almost any government spending will create some jobs and save others. But as Milton Friedman once pointed out, that doesn’t tell you much: The government, after all, can create jobs by hiring people to dig holes and fill them in.

If the “saved or created” formula looks brilliant, it’s only because Mr. Obama and his team are not being called on their claims. And don’t expect much to change. So long as the news continues to repeat the administration’s line that the stimulus has already “saved or created” 150,000 jobs over a time period when the U.S. economy suffered an overall job loss 10 times that number, the White House would be insane to give up a formula that allows them to spin job losses into jobs saved.

“You would think that any self-respecting White House press corps would show some of the same skepticism toward President Obama’s jobs claims that they did toward President Bush’s tax cuts,” says Mr. Fratto. “But I’m still waiting.”

Letterman calls Gov. Palin’s daughter a prosititute. Makes rape joke about Palin’s 14 year old. – UPDATED!

Posted by iusbvision on June 10, 2009

Elliot Spitzer was caught with a young prostitute in case you didn’t get the “joke”.

He also attacked Gov. Palin’s 14 year old daughter Willow with this:

UPDATE II: Bill O’reilly is reporting that most of the major newspapers have ignored this story. Imagine if a Republican had said this about Chelsea Clinton or one of Obama’s daughters, would the story be ignored? Oh thats rights it’s the media and the far left sexist double standard, Sarah Palin is a woman in elected office so its ok to makes these types of attacks against her OK.

The general CBS contact form can be found here.

UPDATE – The PUMA PAC blog has a great post on this situation.

Editor’s Note: Before I get to their post, for those that don’t know, PUMA is a wing of the Democratic Party that supported Hillary Clinton in the last election, they were not pleased by the Obama Campaign’s sexist attacks against Hillary Clinton (some of which we catalogued ion this web site as well) they were also not pleased thatthe so called “super delagates” in the Democratic leadership called the primary for Barack Obama when Hillary was surging ahead and actually enjoyed a popular vote lead in the primary. It was dirty. PUMA stands for “Party Unity My A$$”. The Chicago style election diry tricks used against Hillary are no secret to those who follow politics closely. To the PUMA’s credit, they displayed real intellectual honesty when they saw the same dirty tricks and sexist double standards used against Sarah Palin. Some PUMA blogs and groups were so disgusted that they could not support the Obama ticket and from a policy perspective this made sense as well, because policy wise McCain and Hillary are closer together than the very far left policy decisions that we have seen from the Obama Administration.

PUMA’s have also seen how Obama has carved up the juristictions in the State Departent leaving Hillary almost powerless as Secretery of State.

Here’s John Ziegler putting the conventional feminist movement to shame:

Contessa, Contessa, Contessa. Sexism doesn’t KILL you, you lying hypocrite. At least not very often. What it does is limit your opportunities and jeopardize your ambitions. If I had been in Ziegler’s chair I think I would have responded to her ridiculous statement that she had been called slutty and survived it okay with, “Well, Contessa, perhaps being seen as a slut is a benefit in your industry.” I wonder if she would have gotten the point. Probably not.

Dear CBS,

David Letterman should be publicly censured for his offensive and sexist attempts to ridicule Sarah Palin and her daughters on June 9th. Last night’s non-apology is FAR from sufficient to address the damage he has done. Calling public figures “slutty” and implying that a young girl being raped and/or becoming pregnant as a result of unwanted sex with a much older man for LAUGHS is absolutely out of bounds, and is not funny in any context. 

AMERICAN WOMEN DEMAND A SINCERE APOLOGY FROM DAVID LETTERMAN TO THE PALIN FAMILY AND TO ALL HIS VIEWERS!

I am also contacting the advertisers who sponsor the Letterman show, especially M&M Mars, Embassy Suites, and Best Western, which market themselves as family friendly brands, to urge them to pull their advertising from a show that uses violently sexist material for laughs.

Sincerely,
Your Name

Kudo’s to the PUMA PAC and our old friends at Hillbuzz for standing up to what has really become grotesque amounts of sexism in politics today. Hillbuzz is reporting that letterman lied in his apology and we cover that HERE.
