Amazing how liberals whiiiiiiiiiine when taxes are cut, claiming it will “cost” the Government too much money. Or as George Bush was freeing Iraq, all they could ever focus on was the “cost” of the war. But suddenly the Bumbler in Chief is President and any spending, no matter what the cost, is “stimulus” instead of a “cost” to the Government. Bridge to nowhere? It’s a stimulus, stupid! Who do you think are gonna make the bridge? People will be paid, employers will hire more workers, and order more supplies, and require more engineers, Oh, My GAWD, let’s build two of those suckers! No, wait, one is good, two better, five is even better! After all, all spending is “stimulus” in Barry’s world!
Less than a month into office, and already an official embarrassment. Barry Hussein could not get hired as the CEO of a small to moderate corporation. If still in the Senate he would be the stupid liberal junior Senator from Illinois whom nobody listened to and even fewer cared about. But America was duped, we held a popularity contest and the cool kid from Hawaii won. Now we have to live with it for the next four years.
Read it and puke:
THE PRESIDENT: Then there’s the argument, well, this is full of pet projects. When was the last time that we saw a bill of this magnitude move out with no earmarks in it? Not one. (Applause.) And when you start asking, well, what is it exactly that is such a problem that you’re seeing, where’s all this waste and spending? Well, you know, you want to replace the federal fleet with hybrid cars. Well, why wouldn’t we want to do that? (Laughter.) That creates jobs for people who make those cars. It saves the federal government energy. It saves the taxpayers energy. (Applause.)
So then you get the argument, well, this is not a stimulus bill, this is a spending bill. What do you think a stimulus is? (Laughter and applause.) That’s the whole point. No, seriously. (Laughter.) That’s the point. (Applause.)
