Obama's Eco-Fascism Will Eliminate 2.6 Million Jobs

While Obama is wrought to fib about the number of jobs he "saved," he fails to disclose the number of jobs lost as a result of his inane environmental policies.  Fortunately, some are keeping score.  Doug Ross has a terrific blog post detailing Obama's jobs record by the numbers.  Here is the tally of jobs lost, or slated to be eliminated, as a result of radical environmentalism:
