The commie friends of Obama would be China. I know, it's hard to keep track given the company the idiot keeps.<quoted text>
So bitter my crotchety republican friend. Who are the commies you are speaking of?
These are not government positions being created, these are grants given to the private sector which as you stated is already in the process of developing bettery technology. Government grants are given out all the time, some things more useful than others. In your opinion is there anything this admin can spend money on without incurring your wrath? People whine that he is not doing enough to create jobs, and then whine when he tries to do something about it.
I see you have nothing to say in regards to the trillions spent on our attempt to discover WMDs? Yes TRILLIONS wasted...you poeple want to complain about where the jobs are and wasted spending. Start there.
With regards to Afhganistan, again a war started by the last administration, I agree we should pull out from there too. But we actually have legitmate reasons for being there. Osama bin Laden was responsible for 9/11...not Saddam Hussien or any Iraqi.
Spending grant money so companies can employ a few Phd's is not economic stimulus and it will be a decade or more before it creates meaningful numbers of manufacturing jobs, if ever. Government grants for research may provide some long term net benefit for the economy but only a liar could call it a stimulus. I would be happy if the fool just stopped trying to "stimulate" the economy because it is obvious he despises capitalism when it gets in the way of his political ambitions. When the majority of stimulus money goes to bail out states and for social welfare programs it is clear the idiot in chief isn't interested in reducing unemployment anyway.
As for war, how is an eight year campaign to find one guy, who isn't even Afghani, legitimate? Especially given that virtually everyone thinks he isn't in Afghanistan.
I have one thing to say about the trillion wasted in Iraq, why did virtually every Dem vote to go to Iraq and still continue to fund the war? Maybe you can explain how wasting one trillion in Iraq justifies wasting 4 times that amount in six months.
The fool claims that the stimulus is working with less than 10% of the funds having actually been spent. Meanwhile every important economic indicator is in the dumps.
