Your so right.

Most level headed, thinking, people have figured that out long ago.

Nice to see that at least one member of the LSM has finally figured it out too. Jeeze.

Don't Worry! Obama just inked a deal with UTOPIA! We're gonna be saved....

Utopia--President Obama signed an agreement with Utopia today in which the mythical ideal society agreed to supply the United States with all the goods and services it would need during America's transition to a system of more government control and less personal responsibility.

Utopia also agreed to take part in an educational exchange program in which dissent would be replaced with an equally distributed admiration for America's platonic leader.

"Under this inter-idealization agreement," said Obama, "Utopia has agreed to produce for us whatever used to be the product of individual initiative, the drive for personal fulfillment, and the free enterprise system. I am pleased to sign this fiction into law."

I know most of us level headed people already new this but now even CNN is starting to figure this out.... Is hell freezing over?????

Economists say the stimulus didn't help - Apr. 26, 2010
Bash CNN up one side and down the other on a daily basis for being "liberally biased" and then, when they finally say something the cons like, it's, "Even CNN" has figured this out.

Once again, the Republican Noise Machine figures out a way to make lemons out of lemonade.

Well you know what they say, even a blind squirrel finds an acorn every once in awhile. In this case the blind squirrel happens to be CNN.

A survey of 68 Economists - who know far more about economics than you do, TM (not that this latter bit would be a very high standard).

Why were they all from only one entity which happened to be business economists?

Do you think people who work for the big corps have something to gian from trashing Obama?

slanted study folks with only 68 people.
Sixty eight people who work for companies in an economic capacity. Nor does this contradict the administration's own views, which I posted above.
Face it, the stimulus was an enormous failure that did more to prolong this recession than end it, and has saddled us with unprecedented debts.
Fail.

Gee. Business economists assessing how the stimulus bill affected businesses.

Imagine that.

Listen. When even CNN, which has been a notorious cheerleader for TeamObama since the primaries, comes out and reports that his centerpiece legislation has been a failure, then you know it's done. If the best you can do is whine then so be it.

"About 73% of those surveyed said employment at their company is neither higher nor lower as a result of the $787 billion Recovery Act"

Because they do not think they see it in their own company does not mean it has not helped.

It was not targeted at big corps was it?

This study is only a small slice of the story and the people interviewed have a stake in making Obama look bad because they dont want him to gain steam for regulations omn corps.

See what you want in this study but it doesnt mean what you claim it does.

You are correct - but not for the reason you think. The Stimulus was not designed to help corporations; it was designed to prop up state and local governments.

As a job creator, it's a bust.
