    The Labor Department paid out hundreds of thousands of dollars in federal stimulus funds to a public relations firm to run more than 100 commercials touting the Obama administration’s “green training” job efforts on two MSNBC cable shows, records show.



    ....according to a project report, which listed the number zero under a section of the report asking how many jobs had been created through the stimulus contract.




    David Williams, president of the nonprofit watchdog Taxpayers Protection Alliance, called the contract “questionable” because it created no jobs and because of the placement of the ads on shows viewed as friendly to the administration’s policies.




    “Taxpayers would be a lot happier at the end of the day to see a completed road rather than a bunch of ads on cable television,” he said




    Mr. Obama signed the $829 billion stimulus into law in February 2009 with the promise it would sustain 3.5 million jobs. But at its peak it likely was responsible for far fewer, according to estimates by the Congressional Budget Office.




    ....the price tag was too large and say much of the spending went to fund Mr. Obama’s political agenda, such as green energy programs, rather than to shovel-ready roads, bridges and other infrastructure projects.

    Link your ass to the bottom of the thread imbecile. Another premature jump to a conclusion without looking. Seems you have a penchant for that lately, don't you?

    Shit. If true then that money should have gone back to we the taxpayer.

    If we had gotten that money back It sure would have stimulated the economy a hell of a lot more than the way it was spent.

    Barry and his green bs has cost we taxpayers billions with no results.

    VOLT anyone??

    SOLYNDRA anyone??

    Based on what we now know about him and how he does business, he's almost become a caricature of himself.

    You don't even have to doubt what you read because we just keep hearing one bad or slippery thing about him, his agenda and his campaign after another.

    The guy is a walking slimeball right out of the corrupt Chicago political machine.

    You wanted the link and your silence is deafening, but typical.
