POLITICS: The Meaning of Jobs "Created," Part II

Somewhere in these 57 states, there exist Congressional Districts between sight and sound, in which Barack Obama is "creating jobs" that do not exist for constituents of Congresspersons who do not exist either, reports Jonathan Karl of ABC News:

Here's a stimulus success story: In Arizona's 9th Congressional District, 30 jobs have been saved or created with just $761,420 in federal stimulus spending. At least that's what the website set up by the Obama Administration to track the $787 billion stimulus says.

There's one problem, though: There is no 9th Congressional District in Arizona; the state has only eight Congressional Districts.

There's no 86th Congressional District in Arizona either, but the government's recovery.gov Web site says $34 million in stimulus money has been spent there.

In fact, Recovery.gov lists hundreds of millions spent and hundreds of jobs created in Congressional districts that don't exist.

Read the whole thing (did you know the Northern Mariana Islands had 99 Congressional Districts? Neither did I.)

I can't wait for these guys to run the Census, can you?

Who did O-bama designate to oversee that the money was properly spent. Oh yea, that would Joe Biden. "Because you don't mess with Joe!"

Bush lied- people died, haliburton, stolen election, blah, blah-I figure that I will just now start writing the responses from the libtards to save everybody time.

You just stole Berto's and magrooder's whole postings! What will they say now?

I live in Phoenix. I see precious little evidence of stimulus money being put to good use anywhere. Not even in the congressional districts that do exist.

Run the Census? Hell, I can't wait for these braindeads to run healthcare!

dch,
Tell us again how Bush didn't lie (since you brought it up) about Saddam throwing the weapons inspectors out of Iraq during the run-up to war.
Hoping you'll answer, because I love fictional stories.

As for the topic's post. Agreed. Obama should have learned from the mistakes of his predecessor. Spending government revenue without any oversight whatsoever is a recipe for disaster. Look how W wasted Crank's hard-earned tax revenues with his dueling boondoggles in the middle east.
Sorry Barack, just because Crank didn't make a peep about it, doesn't mean it didn't happen.
