Opinion: The July Jobs Report Highlights Obama's Cracked Stimulus Crystal Ball

18 months ago, at a speech in Illinois. Of course, there were plenty of speeches he gave in selling the stimulus.

In it, he said that as soon as the $780-plus billion stimulus plan got signed into law, "a new wave of innovation, activity and construction will be unleashed across America." He added that it "will ignite spending by businesses and consumers" and that the "goal at the heart of this plan" is "to create jobs."
Let's not even bring up the "jolt to the economy" and the claim to keep UE under 8%.
