Jobs "saved or created"

there's a great new fabricated statistic being used by the Obama administration to describe the overwhelming success of the stimulus/spending binge. Since the economy continues to shed jobs, and has gotten worse, not better under Obama, I guess this new term allows them to feed something positive to the media, which of course they gladly report without question.

"Jobs created or saved" gives them the ability to say "it would have been worse without our amazing plan in place", even as things continue to go badly.

This reminds me of when my wife "saves me" hundreds of dollars by buying Prada shoes "on sale".
