    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OJgt17-HxVE]YouTube - Obama Tells Mayors to Spend Stimulus Wisely[/ame]


    I m impressed with Obama's real warning towards mayors and also the actions that he already took like this website for example: Recovery.gov . What do you guys think about it?

    Do you think that the mayors will receive this the good way or do you think they might feel insulted by this and feel that they are treated like little school boys?

    I think it will fall on Deaf Ears, and most of this money will not be spent Wisely.

    Do you think his website will be as transparent as he promises? And that he will act, is that credible to you?

    that was a foregone conclusion when obamalama signed the bill,, you think schwartzie in califonia is gonna spend the 30 million wisely on Nancy's mouse/.. give us all a break and stfu about transparency,, if transparency was what he wanted the bill would have been posted online and open for discussion for a week before he signed it..

    Lol , there is no Nancy mouse : I heard that yesterday on TV : CNN was "fact checking" that. The guy just wanted some attention: that s the kind of bullshit you pull of when you have no good arguments, you know?



    That is the problem, he didn't have a week. Each week he wasted the problem would be bigger and his bill would become less effective (and he d be needing an even bigger bill as a result).

    We spend $1 TRILLION saving Iraq?

    We can spend $1 trillion saving the United States, I think.

    Yes, much of it will be what many of you think is a waste.

    Much of it will be what I think is waste, too.

    We might tend not to agree on which spending is wasted, though.

    That's politics, isn't it?

    Obama was up to his ears in Chicago/Illinois politics. His real expectations would be based on his real experiences. 'Nuff said.'
