I'm about two months late on this one, so sorry.
“The last stimulus bill didn’t create one new job and in some states the money that was actually released hasn’t even been used yet,â€￾ [republican senator from Massachusetts Scott] Brown said.
[...] 
“Economists of all political points of view, including those from the non-partisan [Congressional Budget Office], estimate that the Recovery Act has created or saved between 1.5-2.4 million jobs across America,â€￾ said Jay Carney, spokesman for Vice President Joe Biden, the administration’s top Recovery Act booster and watchdog.
When called on his bullshit, this fumbling baffoon changes his argument to "Well, um, I mean yes, I was technically completely wrong when I said that, but see what I *meant* was that the recovery act did not magically make us more jobs than we lost in ten years in one year and that since that's *clearly* what it was meant to do, President Obama is a failure to his wife--where are my pills?" This is what happens when you start trying to act as if facts don't matter: you look like an idiot and are wrong.

Brown wasn't elected because he has anything to add to the content of the country, he was elected because he was Republican. That probably hasn't occurred to him yet.
