Even White House Finds Claim Hillarious: Obama Created Over 2.1 Million Private Sector Jobs. (Laughter.)

June 21, 2011

This is just one of those priceless moments that the mainstream media will somehow “not find newsworthy” in their continually biased coverage.  For whatever reason, I STILL have the footage in my head from all the times the mainstream media played and replayed the footage of George Bush going to the wrong door after an event in China along with the mocking of his having “no exit strategy.”  It would be nice if these “journalists” were even a tiny fraction as “objective” as they continually self-righteously profess themselves to be.

As Conservative Christian Onward Points out:

 Obama Deliberately Lies, Claims he Created 2.1 Million Jobs (Laughter)
Posted on June 21, 2011 at 3:44 PM

We all know Obama’s a deliberate liar. However, last night at a Democratic fundraiser (because more than a year prior to the election, our president should be fundraising more than trying to find solutions to problems) he spread the lie again. Once again he claimed the that his administration created (rolls eyes) 2.1 million jobs:

“As a consequence of that swift, decisive, and sometimes difficult period, we were able to take an economy that was shrinking by about 6 percent and create an economy that is now growing, and has grown steadily now over many consecutive quarters. Over the last 15 months we’ve created over 2.1 million private sector jobs.”

Now even if his number is correct and the stimulus did create 2.1 million, that’s a cost of $390,952 per job. Not a very efficient means of “recovery,” especially considering the fact we’re still not recovering sufficiently. However, a study released by the nonpartisan CBO earlier this month reveals that the most Obama could possibly claim he created is 700,000 jobs. That’s means that it cost more than $1.8 million per job.

Clearly when jobs are costing so much and adding so much to our debt, they are destroying more than they create. That fact is made evident by the fact that, according to the Department of Labor, we have lost 1.9 million since the stimulus. How can Obama claim he’s created over 2 million jobs, when he’s had a net loss of nearly 2 million? You’d have to be one sick liar to believe that.

But what’s truly hilarious isn’t his erroneous lie, but the fact that if you look at the White House’s own transcripts, including those shown on Obama’s best friend (teleprompter) and on closed captioning at home, you’ll see that Obama’s asinine lies here are followed by laughter.

And they should be followed by laughter because such a claim is laughably false when the CBO deliberately contradicts Obama’s deliberate lies as does the BLS which shows he’s destroyed 1.9 million jobs. Put bluntly, Obama is lying to you once again.


Cover, Matt. “1.9 Million Fewer Americans Have Jobs Today Than When Obama Signed Stimulus.” 14 June 2011. 21 June 2011.

“Remarks by the President at a DNC Event.” 20 June 2011. 21 June 2011.

It’s only a matter of time before Obama’s ridiculous claim of “we’ve created over 2.1 million private sector jobs” will go the way of all those “shovel-ready jobs” he previously said he’d created.

Obama is a shameless liar.  It’s about time that fact got pointed out by his own White House transcript.
