It wasn't enough.

Stimulus added jobs, just not enough - Sep. 8, 2011

According to some third-party estimates, the White House may have come close to hitting that target, especially if you factor in the administration's bailout of the auto industry.

But the job losses in late 2008 and early 2009 ended up being much worse than expected. A total of 3.8 million jobs were lost from December 2008 through April 2009, an average of just over 750,000 a month.

By the time the job losses stopped a year after Obama took office, the Great Recession had cost the economy 8.8 million jobs, and the unemployment rate was stuck in the 9% to 10% range.
The economy was screwed up far worse by Conservatives then they let on. They fucked things up and lied about how badly they screwed the pooch.

Good job boys! :clap2:

As planned, right?

It's because you Liberals are so easily lead astray:

Bush: "Ok Barack, the economy is humming along just fine, you don't need to do anything".
Obama reading from a Teleprompter: "Ok. George. That's. Good. To. Know. Thanks!"

If I take a caddy, can I say that's a "job created or saved"?
Maybe more tobaccy checks would have been nice..right on the congressional floor!

Party line:

1. Bush is a stupid failure.

2. Obama is a brilliant success.

3. The reason Obama can't get anything done is because Bush keeps doing really sneaky things that thwart every move Obama makes.
