Well, the Dems managed to write a stimulus plan laden with so much pork, and stealth welfare, they totally united the Republican party against it – quite a feat, really. Not one Republican in the House voted for the Democrat’s “shit sandwich”. The Dems own it now, and it’s destined to fail, because there was actually,very little stimulus in the stupid thing.
Not that it matters, now, but hundreds of economists have called Obama a liar in newspaper ads:
President Obama says that “economists from across the political spectrum agree” on the need for massive government spending to stimulate the economy. In fact, many economists disagree. Hundreds of them, including Nobel laureates and other prominent scholars, have signed a statement that the Cato Institute has placed in major newspapers across the United States.
The bill actually seems designed to consolidate Democrat power. They are digging in, just like I thought they would. That’s what the ACORN money is for. That’s what the Welfare and Medicaid redistribution is for. They’re buying votes.
Never mind the P.O.S video I previously posted…. I discovered (thank you Geoff) that was an old video from 2007, and the P.O.S. was killed. We’re not going to be so lucky, with the next P.O.S. amnesty bill that comes down the pike, I fear.
Speaking of Geoff…
Obama gets a C- from Fred Barnes on his bipartisanship efforts.
I don’t know…I think the fact that he and the Dems couldn’t even be bothered to remove the useless pork, and the *eff-you* to Republicans in the form of ACORN funding, and the fact that he got 0% of the Republicans to vote for the crap sandwich, earns him an F-, but maybe that’s just me.
Senate Republicans take heed:
A new Rassmussen Report report shows public support for hyper-partisan Democrat stimulus package has fallen to 42%. Republicans overwhelmingly oppose the bill.
Credit where it’s due: Michelle Malkin thanks the House Republicans for taking a stand.
MoveOn. org, Service Employees International Union(SEIU), and other leftist/marxist groups will be running ads targeting Republicans to support Obama’s stimulus pkg.
