More "Create or Save"

Today and last couple of days, I've seen a pickup in sensible people calling out how stupid this 'create or save' nonsense is. Bill McGurn from WSJ had a great article about it today, smacking the media for playing along with this phony math. Obama's lapdogs will do whatever their master pleases. Rush also wacked the administration for this so called "saved" jobs number. I've said it before, anybody can make up a number of 'saved' statistics. For example, Katie Couric (who by the way sucks as an anchor and pretty much at life) has the worst rating since they've been rating, lol. She's lost over 2million viewers but in essence she has saved 5million more. Ahh, I love this math. I wish I could use it at the job: Boss, we lost five clients last week but I really saved nine (out of 20) clients. Nonsense.
From McGurn:

"You can measure how many jobs are created between two points in time. But
there is no way to measure how many jobs are saved. Even if things get much,
much worse, the President can say that there would have been 4 million fewer
jobs without the stimulus."

Rush was pretty funny talking about this, going as far as saying that this math is so impossible "maybe even God" wouldn't be able to figure this math out. Heh. Actually He can.
