    More Leeches!

    President Obama’s speech tonight was a political act, and has generally been treated as such. Indeed, his political purpose was so transparent that he felt compelled to devote his opening paragraphs to denying it. Politics, nevertheless, suffused the speech. Once again, Obama offered the absurd pretense that it is politics that has delayed the government’s ability to help the economy recover:

    The question is whether, in the face of an ongoing national crisis, we can stop the political circus and actually do something to help the economy….

    What political circus is that? The circus that prevailed during the two years when the Democrats had Washington to themselves, and passed whatever they wanted, including a near-trillion-dollar “stimulus” plan that was a complete failure? Or did the circus start when Congressional Republicans forced the administration to agree to a minimal amount of spending discipline in exchange for increasing the debt ceiling, yet again?"

    I think the problem was Republican Governors were using the shovels to shovel money in the pockets of the rich and no one could find a shovel.

    States Misusing Stimulus Money

    WASHINGTON — Under pressure to spend stimulus money quickly, many states are using the federal funds for short-term projects and to fill budget gaps rather than spending on long-term improvements, according to a report by congressional investigators.
    The report, scheduled to be released Tuesday by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) at a House oversight hearing, also says many states aren't meeting some goals and requirements of the economic recovery program
