Yep. What happened to Obama and his plan to end the partisanship?? He meant it. But the problem are the buffoons like Pelosi and the other hopeless lefties who think Obama's ideas were "cute" but decided to try and go on a feeding frenzy. He has no control over his party. It is clearly the Democrats who killed any hope for bi-partisanship in DC.

A great example is that stupid stunt Gibbs pulled last week trying to dog Palin by writing on his had. His butt should have been fired by Obama that same day. He is the press sec for the white house and behaves like THAT!?!?!? Just sad and pathetic.

From the article:
Nagle also cited the problems President Barack Obama and congressional Democrats are having persuading voters that the stimulus plan is helping revive the economy and create jobs.

"It's not something tangible they can touch. It's not reaching peoples' lives," Nagle said.

The stimulus plan, so far, has only kept the credit markets from more serious financial collapse. That has kept the national unemployment levels from running up around 25%, according to Hank Paulson. Of course, the demand aggregate response to the downturn by both Bush and Obama (and the Fed) has made it clear that a slow recovery is in everybody's crystal ball.

A quick turnaround can only come, at this point, from serious tax cuts (financial incentives) to revive a more dynamic economy (lower unemployment) and rising interest rates to maintain a more stable currency.(Of course, in the short term a little boost is coming from the apparent unwillingness of the EU to bail out Greece.) The rise in interest rates will bring more dollars off of the international markets which will lower gold and other commodity prices, benefiting the world economy as well.
