Already With the Doubts

Okay, I hafta say this.  Has anyone else noticed that the number of jobs Obama's stimulus package is supposedly going to create keeps creeping up?  Two and a half million; more than two and a half million; three million... every time he talks about it our imaginary future economy keeps getting brighter.

And how will we measure job growth?  We're expected to lose millions of jobs this year anyway, so if we lose less than predicted, does that mean we actually gain jobs?

Don't get me wrong, I love the man and I'm all for whatever the hell he thinks will work.  But I am skeptical when it comes to extending the American standard of living.  You know what I think?  I think the party's over and it's time to start living within our means.

UPDATE: Obama advisers: Plan would create up to 4.1M jobs
