PASS IT NOW!!!!!
We had to get it done. Last Valentines Day weekend, we had to push through the Obama stimulus (porkulus) bill because unemployment would skyrocket if we didn’t pass it NOW so said the democrats. If we passed it, said the democrats, unemployment would be held below 8%. So here we are, 4 months later and we are at 9.4% unemployment and rising. It has not made jobs. Joe Biden comes out over the weekend and says “Everyone all guessed wrong on the impact of the stimulus package” but he defended the administrations spending designed to combat rising joblessness. Biden said inaccuracies in unemployment predictions shouldn’t undercut the White House’s support of the 787 billion dollar stimulus plan. The plan was supposed to create 600,000 new jobs. That’s WELL over one million dollars a job!! He said these will be new jobs that would not have been there before. That’s a lie. There is no proof of that anywhere. There is no evidence that this stimulus has created any jobs that would not have been there before its inception. Ten days before Obama was sworn in his top advisers stated unemployment would remain at 8% or below through this year if the stimulus plan won approval. Yet in May, we reached 9.4% and we continue to go up. 14.5 million Americans are out of work. Biden said that no one realized how bad the economy was. So he blames the faulty numbers and not the fact that the stimulus plan is creating no new jobs. We on the right knew it wouldn’t create jobs. Now Biden is swooping into towns across the country telling people to support the plan.
So when I heard this, three letters came to mind. Not numbers, not words. Three letters came to mind.

So we guessed wrong, big deal, it happens.
Didn’t Powell and Cheney and Bush all tell us we were going into Iraq because Saddam had weapons of mass destruction?
The left claims they were never there. We went to war over false pretences!! They screamed and hollered over and over and over and over again that Bush lied. The libs and the media never let them get away with it and never let them forget it. Now, there’s a good chance that Saddam’s nuclear work ended up in Syria but the best guess at this point is that they were wrong. The best guess is Saddam was bluffing. He kept telling the world he had them to keep his enemies at bay. But Bush and Cheney were wrong and they never heard the end of it.
Well now, Obama and Biden are wrong and the stimulus hasn’t done a thing. You could easily make the case we’d be at 9.4% without the stimulus package. Yet Biden can get away with a shrug of his shoulders and say oops, we were wrong. We said the stimulus would have an immediate effect and hold down unemployment, but we were wrong. Almost a trillion dollars is wasted on NOTHING!! All we have is empty White House claims that we saved 150 thousand jobs which is (of course) impossible to measure.
It’s a ridicules falsehood invented by a desperate and dishonest president. It’s easy to sell a package if you have no one to make you back up the pie in the sky claims made by this administration. They used the recession to justify an unjustifiable package of sops to the left that haven’t done one thing to pull us out of this downward spiral. Obama said government is the only solution to a problem this big.
Government is the problem, not the solution. Right Ronny?
