    Yup.

    Of course even if the stimulus package starts to work, it will be called a failure by those who are more concerned with their party than they are their nation.

    We ALL know that, already, right?

    With e-verify ending will the multitudes of illegals who get jobs in the U.S. be included in Obama's '3-4 million jobs created and/or saved'? Don't bother answering.

    If Obama is confident that this time around spending our way out of recession will work, why is he still on the campaign trail? Oh yes, that's his forte.

    Not so.

    Let's agree at the start that every right-thinking American wants the bill to succeed, and that the result is mitigation of the global crisis, and an end to the suffering of Americans in particular.

    We do live in interesting times. And time will tell, as there are metrics that will answer the question of whether or not the bill is a success or failure. Renewal of credit, unemploymenet numbers, housing sales. Now would be a good time to make predictions.

    Less definitive will be political questions, such as why the bill had to be passed so quickly, why it had to include a reversal of the move away from welfare, why was government control of healthcare included, whether permanent tax cuts should have held a more prominent role, whether "pork" was a major component.

    These questions will be fodder of the 2010 elections.

    Food for thought; maybe the economy begins to turn around despite the stimulus bill. Then the question becomes "was it the stimulus package or did we just add another trillion to our debt".

    More worrisome is that the economy is turning around on its own, but the mass spending pulls it back and causes inflation.

    There's three sides. I'm on the third. The bill should be twice as big

    And there's two sides to that coin. There will be people that even if the bill is a massive failure, they'll still claim it's a success. That would be the more plausible seeing as the liberal drive by media is, has been in the tank for hussein.

    But we ALL knew that already, right?

    There's seems to be quite a few angles on this thing.
