Newsweek was kind enough to post this graph (courtesy of innocentbystanders.net) updating the effects on unemployment of Obama's stimulus plan.

Hint: it's not an improvement

Not fair! How dare you hold the administration to a standard like that! As you know, they have "saved" hundreds of thousands of jobs. Just ask them...they'll tell you it's true. Without that $700,000,000,000 just IMAGINE where we'd be.

Yes...just imagine....
