35. One has to wonder what happened to the 2.5 million jobs and the
work on the infrastructure promised in the way back years. It is 2011, the promised year.

Here's something from the 'way back' machine:


http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2008/nov/22/obama-p ... /

<snip> President -elect Barack Obama has asked his economic team to draft a plan to save or create 2.5 million jobs by 2011, the Democrat told the nation in his second weekly radio address Saturday morning.

<snip> I have already directed my economic team to come up with an Economic Recovery Plan that will mean 2.5 million more jobs by January of 2011 a plan big enough to meet the challenges we face that I intend to sign soon after taking office, he said in the address.
.
<snip> Mr. Obama said it would be a two-year, nationwide effort to jumpstart job creation in America and lay the foundation for a strong and growing economy.

<snip> He reprised his promises from the campaign trail, saying he would put people to work rebuilding the nations roads and bridges and with jobs in the new energy sector as part of a broad plan to stem effects of climate change.
