    What's your point? That we are in a recession, bad one created by GOP policies? That jobs are always the market lagger in an economic recovery created by BHO's administration? That life is getting a bit better every day but it is going slow because of the toll of the failed Bush policies?

    OK, we all understand that.

    The point should be obvious.

    Obama was, is and will always be full of shit.

    Before you showed up, a lot of said this is EXACTLY what would be the result of Porkulous.

    It should also be a warning to you, Obama WASTED nearly a trillion dollars on this boondoggle, and he wants to do the same with healthcare.

    THIS is is track record:

    FAILURE.

    Xeno, thanks for posting this valuable partisan drivel from a Republican blog.

    Rush to judgement. It hasn't massively failed, it just isn't working yet.

    The focus has been healthcare. Business can't come back strong enough without healthcare reform, everyone knows this. Let's get that done then we can sort out the rest.

    Three points:

    1. The stimulus is designed poorly. I've complained about it and why I think it's badly (read classist) designed on other threads.

    2. What it has done, however, is keep a lot of people in their jobs who would have, otherwise, lost them. Teachers and state workers, and public works construction workers, mostly. (FYI, I think the numbers of people who are working who would not have been, sans that stimulus money, numbers in the millions)

    3. So far, they've spent about 1/3 of the total package, so there's some hope that it will help a bit.

    If I were grading the package thus far, I'd give it about a C-

    Well, I know it's working around me. Lot of roadwork going on because of it.

    About time, too.

    Its not drivel, its not partisan and its not a 'blog.'

    Thank you for being a good illustration of a mindless Obamatron, the thing this nation has to get past.

    There is zero proof that this is the case, and it was NOT designed to do that in any case.

    It was supposed to STIMULATE THE ECONOMY AND CREATE JOBS.

    Claiming with zero proof it 'saved jobs' is just spin doctoring.

    BTW, Unemployment today hit 9.8, a 26 year high.

    So much for 'saving jobs.'
