    Does anyone believe this guy anymore?

    We had to rush the spending/stimulus bill into signing even though 100% of Congress had not read the whole thing and only 5% has has been spent.... WTF? If it was such an emergency why isn't the money being spent????:cuckoo:

    Because some of us understand this, maybe?

    I wonder if he's one of those paid spammers. Cause seriously no one could post the trash he does with a straight face.

    As to his purported question... as always, I get to point out the "is the country going in the right direction" numbers... they've actually even gone up a little bit...

    so the rightwingnut and his friends really need to take their heads out of their butts.

    I want a job as a paid spammer.

    I could do a much better job defending the neocons agenda than most of the lunatics on this board do, ya' know.

    Hey it takes time to convince the Chinese to lend us more money and for the Fed to monetize more debt, give 'em a break.


    I found this part of the story particularly poignant:
    "Neither the acceleration nor the jobs goal are new. Both represent a White House repackaging of promises and projects to blunt criticism that the effects haven't been worth the historic price tag. And the job estimate is so murky, it can never be verified.

    The economy has shed 1.6 million jobs since the stimulus measure was signed in February, far overshadowing White House announcements estimating the effort has saved 150,000 jobs. Public opinion of Obama's handling of the economy has declined along with the jobs data."

    Typical Washington bullshit, make vague promises you can never hope to keep then immediately begin backtracking after you've got the funds allocated.

    Yep this is "Change We Can Believe In" alright .....can't wait for Act II.

    Some of us also understand the VAST MAJORITY of the money will NEVER be used for new projects at all. And the tired old lie that the projects were all SHOVEL READY would be proven yet again. You do REMEMBER Obama making this claim RIGHT?

    Ahh yes Jillian the TROLL LEADER on the board resorting to her usual leftoid tactics. Claim someone that posts something she does not like is a paid spammer, or works for X Corporation, or is a SECRET high muckied muck in the Republican Party.

    In other words try to raise the rabble against them so even though what they post is true and factual you can get everyone to ignore the message and attack the messenger.

    Obama is claiming he has "saved or created" 150,000 jobs. By year's end he says he will
    "save or create" 600,000 jobs. The WSJ is laughing at the White House press corps for just reporting such BS and not asking questions. When the press corps show up for a press conference they all bring candy and their shoe shine kits. When the media turns against Obama that will be his end, and it will happen.
