There's no doubt that Apple is doing far better than the U.S. economy as a whole. But that doesn't mean Steve Jobs had a better jobs record than Barack Obama.
Last night in the Republican's response to the president's State of the Union address, Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels proclaimed that Apple has created more jobs than President Obama's job creation program did.
"The late Steve Jobs — what a fitting name he had — created more of them than all those stimulus dollars the President borrowed and blew," Daniels said.
The only problem with that nice play on the Apple founder's name is that Daniels' math just doesn't add up, no matter how successful and valuable Apple (AAPL, Fortune 500) has become. Not even close.
Daniels' math doesn't add up? Is that all you can say? Why can't you say what he actually did? Why can't you simply tell the truth: Daniels lied to the public. And it was a fucking huge lie. One so far away from the truth, that it could not even be an error but only something that was entirely fabricated to deceive people. A lie. As for the those jobs Jobs made: You can find them here.
