It's interesting, but frustrating, to read headlines and hear assertions on radio and TV that Obama's plan "may" produce thousands of jobs by 2012. AP just reported probability of 100s of thousands of jobs being created. The link above quotes some never-heard-of economists along with Mark Zandi of Moody's Analytics, always a wild card for the administration. 
While the headline of the Daily Finance article is "thumbs up," the most telling comment is found buried 1/2 in..... jobs created might be temporary. Really??? No surprise here. Could they be just long lived enough to get through 2012? Or, hyped enough to get through the election.
For those who don't know Daily Finance, it is umbillically linked to Huffington Post which is now owned by AOL. I sincerely wish I could see the Obama administration differently. Our quality of life depends on policy from the president's office and from congress. Not pretty now.
