Obama "Saved or Created" 150,000 Jobs This Year… Lost 2,046,000

“I especially want to thank Leader Reid, Speaker Pelosi, all of the members of Congress who worked so quickly and effectively to make this blueprint a reality.

This budget builds on the steps we’ve taken over the last 100 days to move this economy from recession to recovery and ultimately to prosperity.

We began by passing a Recovery Act that has already saved or created over 150,000 jobs and provided a tax cut to 95 percent of all working families.”


President Barack Obama
100 Day Press Conference
April 29, 2009

During his 100 Day Press Conference Barack Obama bragged that his administration had created or saved 150,000 jobs.

The US economy lost 598,000 jobs in January.
The US economy lost 706,000 jobs in February.
The US economy lost 742,000 jobs in March.

So, in other words Team Obama has lost 2,046,000 jobs and only created or saved 150,000 jobs.
It looks like Team Obama has some work to do.

UPDATE: The AP actually looked at this and other Obama lies from last night.
