Obama's aides had mocked reporters for making a fuss over his first 100 days in office, but the president was eager to assess the first 100 days of his $787 billion economic stimulus package.

"nearly" 150,000 jobs... oh really... thats only $5,246,666.66 per job!

I'll take half that tax-free and give my job to someone who doesn't have one.

How many new hires have there been by the federal government? I seem to remember something in the range of 80-100,000.

I wish my job had been saved.  I could use a spare $5,246,666.66; preferably paid in gold.
