The Hundred Jobs Challenge

Barack Obama is attempting to claim that his $787 billion pork-laden stimulus is a success.

Many critics consider it a costly waste.

So here is a simple challenge to President Obama.

Please provide America with a list of one hundred different permanent full-time private sector jobs that can directly attributed to specific provisions of the stimulus.

You claim that the stimulus will create 1.5 million jobs, and that it has "saved or created" 2 million more, so documenting just 100 should be fairly simply, shouldn't it?

Don't hold your breath waiting....

The only jobs that have been "created" are thousands of GOVERNMENT jobs, which has the federal government now listed as the largest "employer" in the entire country. This from a President who said "I don't favor big government".

And the worst part? He plans to make it MUCH bigger.

Isn't it true that most of the money hasn't even been spent? From my view, The One, has done absolutely nothing for the economy or the markets.
