A few weeks back, several Gormogons picked on the Obama administration’s claims that the Stimulus package had “created or saved 150,000 jobs” (for those doubters out there, POTUS Obama said it on May 27th, Gaffe-master Biden said it on June 8th and on July 8th, Obama’s deputy director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) said it). The first question is, if the stimulus package is so good, how does it create or save 150,000 by the end of May and do nothing else for the next month and a half? Minor details. We’ll continue. Next, I’ll direct your attention to this website where, if I did the math right via rollovers, the recovery act “created or saved” 3,466,000 jobs. WHOA! That’s 23 times more savings….claimed right on Mr. Obama’s “Foundation for Change” website. Before you get all riled up, let me drop one more number in your lap. According to the Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics, during the same period of time that these claims above were made, the country lost 2,300,000 jobs.
A favorite pasttime of the Gormogons is waiting for Obama administration staff to blurt out something that wasn’t part of the program and then wait for the “what they meant to say” explanation. Well, on CNBC, Dr. Cristina Romer, author of the initial report on the Recovery Act’s estimate of creating or saving 3-4 million jobs, said that the administration really has no way of telling how many jobs were created or saved based on the stimulus bill because there was no baseline and no way of associating a job loss or job creation to the bill. Nor could they forecast what the economy would have done without the bill. Wait for it…it’s coming.
“Ah, what, ah, Dr. Romer meant to say was….”
GorT is an eight-foot-tall robot from the 51ˢᵗ Century who routinely time-travels to steal expensive technology from the future and return it to the past for retroinvention. The profits from this pay all the Gormogons’ bills, including subsidizing this website. Some of the products he has introduced from the future include oven mitts, the Guinness widget, Oxy-Clean, and Dr. Pepper. Due to his immense cybernetic brain, GorT is able to produce a post in 0.023 seconds and research it in even less time. Only ’Puter spends less time on research. GorT speaks entirely in zeros and ones, but occasionally throws in a ڭ to annoy the Volgi. He is a massive proponent of science, technology, and energy development, and enjoys nothing more than taking the Czar’s more interesting scientific theories, going into the past, publishing them as his own, and then returning to take credit for them. He is the only Gormogon who is capable of doing math. Possessed of incredible strength, he understands the awesome responsibility that follows and only uses it to hurt people.
