    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The $787 billion stimulus package passed in February will fuel a recovery in the moribund U.S. economy this year, Congress' non-partisan budget watchdog said on Tuesday.

    "Economic activity will begin to rebound in the second half of 2009, largely the result of fiscal stimulus," the Congressional Budget Office said in its assessment of the federal budget and U.S. economy.

    The stock market is up, consumer confidence is up, existing homes sales had their biggest jump in 30 years.

    And it's all OBAMA's FAULT!!!

    Kind of hard to buy stocks, consumer goods, and houses when you're laid off...


    10% unemployment is just 'round the corner...

    Not to worry, unemployment will recover when their benefits run out.

    Anyone that believes the economy is better because the political whores have seen fit to spend more money we don't have, hasn't been paying attention.

    The Republican lies won't work anymore.

    After a while the truth wears them down.

    And most FoxNews viewers are over 65.

    So more of them are dying off every day.
