    The White House Council of Economic Advisers (CEA) published a report on the economic effects of the Administration's economic stimulus plan.[1] The report claims that the stimulus legislation boosted gross domestic product (GDP) and employment above what they otherwise would have been. That is, the real results the economy is experiencing (10 percent unemployment, for example) are better than where the White House is now predicting the economy would have been without the fiscal stimulus.

    However, the CEA's proof of the economic impact of the fiscal stimulus policy fails basic standards of economic analysis.

    Not one. It probably didn't even save Obama's job.

    I can summarize the analysis of the White House report in one sentence.

    It's a bunch of bull - they made it all up.
