#1 New White House spin: Stimulus not designed to … stimulate07-16-2009, 07:06 PMOld White House spin: Porkulus has stimulated the economy and “saved or created” 150,000 jobs. New White House spin: Stimulus? What stimulus? ABC’s Yunji de NIes reports from somewhere down the rabbit hole, er, the White House briefing room:
"This legislation was designed to cushion the downturn," said White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs. "That's why we have always talked about this as one function of economic recovery."
When pressed about the change in terminology, Gibbs said he was not trying to temper expectations after the fact. "I can probably find 15 or 20 occasions when I said this in the lead up," Gibbs said, explaining that he had always defined the AARA as part of a "multi-legged stool."
