"Stimulus brought few advantages"

How can you say that, we saved the San Francisco Marsh Mouse thanks to Nancy Pelosi's close attention to detail.....

Too funny...

Newsflash.. Bush is no longer the president and the CURRENT one is digging us in even deeper than before with his clueless plans and wish lists.

Hard as it is, you will need to open your eyes and deal with it....the truth that is.

I concur with you 100% as Obama keeps blaming Bush whenever things go wrong with the economy but he has deceived the public and has our economy and nation so mired in debt with his frivolous promises and stimulus bill that people are still blinded by their emotions for Obama. In time, the truth will catch up as the latest polls show Obama's rating falling below 50%. Unfortunately, I was also deceived by Obama and I voted for him but it won't happen in the next election.

Be careful pressing along with that statement. The same folks who bellowed on Clinton after Bushie took office, and still do, are shouting down those who remind us of 43's debacle.

With his understanding of recent unemployment trends, Mr Rethman should recognize that the rate of the growth of unemployment has been decreasing for 3 months now, a direct result of the stimulus funds beginning to churn through the economy.

I agree, there could always be more transparency, but to parrot complaints about the Recovery.gov website is not helpful. What do you really want to see Mr Rethman?

Correct. EIGHT YEARS of Cheney/Bush policies, and were did we find the country, at an economic abyss, with Paulson scrambling for monies to prevent Wall Street collapse. Obama has been in office NINE MONTHS, and critics call his policies as ineffective? Obama came to the White House, and found that nobody bothered to "flush the toilets".

This is correct.

Bush spent 400+ Billion more than he took in every year.

What a maroon.

I'm sure Obama has put us back on a sane financial track, but I'm not privy to economic policy.

Hopey, Changey, Trusty......xoxo....Big Joe.

Regarding that Saturday Night Live skit making fun of Obama's economic policies;

Shouldn't they be making fun of Algore instead?

I mean fair is fair right?

His whole life's work has been exposed as a giant scam that would make Bernie Madoff blush.

Oh, and by the way....Hey Al!.....have a GREEN salad once in a while you fat bas...tad!

Hopey, Changey, Angry....xoxo....Big Joe.
