    Not all of that is pork, but why am I not surprised to see something for the FBI being cut out.

    Dubya and Republicans weren't always so keen on funding the FBI with the level it should be on.

    Clinton is the one who underfunded the FBI more severly.

    Clinton did underfund the FBI, but if you're going to go so low as to say "who screwed up more" then you're desperate in a partisan battle.

    I'm willing to say Clinton fucked up, not so sure about how many Republicans are willing to say Bush fucked up. Especially since the FBI was underfunded DURING WAR TIME UNDER BUSH, Clinton had nowhere anything that 9/11/Afghanistan/Iraq was.

    Doesn't matter, spending on anything is a stimulus to the economy.
