If "the stimulus worked" why did we need a $100 billion "jobs bill?"

    The two circumstances don't logically fit together.

    We were promised the stimulus would keep unemployment at 8% or under. This hasn't happened. Yet we hear every day "the stimulus worked." Please.

    If it worked, why did we need the $100 billion "jobs" bill? Why, if it worked, are they talking about doing yet ANOTHER "stimulus" bill?

    Occam's Razor clears the fog: The fucking stimulus did NOT fucking work.

    So just, use a brain cell for a change.

    It worked, just not the way they billed.

    They wanted to fulfill ol dem wish lists of projects and use fed money for state payrolls, and they did it.

    The only thing 'shovel ready' was the reasons they gave for the massive waste and corruption it actually was.

    But we hear them yelling, the economy is great, there is improvement, we're headed in the right direction, so much tiresome BS lies from Washington. They'll say anything to save their own asses and preserve the lifestyles they are accustomed to, while we the taxpayers struggle day to day

    I can't get over how they think most of us believe their lies. Well we don't, and people like Bill Clinton are now stirring the pot against those who disagree with this dictatorship in Washington D.C.
    Clintons comments include.
    Making threats to lawmakers is wrong, aside from threatening not to vote for them in the next election, but people are frustrated Mr. Clinton you 'butthead', it's because you and people like you in Washington, refuse to do what the majority wants, their doing what THEY want.

    My Way News - Clinton alludes to 1995 bombing, says words matter

    I guess if Clinton can convince those in D.C. that we, the citizens are 'deeply troubled' that they may perceive most of us to be on the edge of insanity giving the government an excuse to intervene in some manner, and most of you know what I am talking about.

    That is becase people like Bill think they know best, and if you disagree something is wrong with you, and they fill in the blank of what they think it is, the two favorite being racism or lack of intelligence.

    The stimulus was too small and shouldn't have been pared down. The economy needed more spending not less. The jobs bill is still a good start to stimulate small business

    You're admitting it didn't work, correct?

    Because it was "too small" and "shouldn't have been pared down."

    I suppose you're going to say Repugs pared it down, dooming it to failure and it's ALLLLLL repug's fault it didn't work, right?

    When will this officially be the talking point? It has the advantage of being at least partially honest.

    McVeigh killed 168 Americans for his beliefs. Ossama Killed 3000. They both hated America and could have been stopped if idiots would have listened to the building threats.

    Right now you are refusing to listen to the building threats.

    Militia movement have grown in huge precentages since Obama was elected.

    This is because you people lap up lies and ignore facts just like McVeigh did before he parked a truck BOMB in front of a government building day care.

    Create a McVeigh thread. This one is about how the stimulus didn't work, troll.

    I've updated Godwin's law in your honor:
