I suspect things are getting desperate when you need to resort to this daftness:

Yet again, very bold statements based on nothing of substance. And aimed at one purpose.

Cue another vacation or 10...

My guess is what they mean is...
"it's 99% of a way to make it sound like we know what we're doing".

Or more to the point...
"We're 99% sure no one in the gullible media won't check our math!".

Or...

"By saying this, I'm 99% sure to get invited on the Today Show. They'll put me up free in a New York hotel and give me free donuts."
