How many jobs created?

We're all heard about all the jobs created by the Democrats' stimulus package. Sounds like it may just be smoke and mirrors.

According to the Associated Press, "...President Barack Obama has said the federal stimulus has created 150,000 jobs, a number based on a misused formula and which is so murky it can't be verified."

According to the article Democrats in Oregon are taking credit for "creating 3,236 jobs in the first three months." "But those jobs lasted on average only 35 hours, or about one work week." In Oregon, a job created counts even if it was only a job for a few hours.
