Obama says stimulus bill saved troubled economy
WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama hailed Wednesday's one-year-old economic stimulus law as an accomplishment that staved off another Great Depression and kept up to 2 million people on the job.
And the facts?
They don't need no stinkin' facts!
In all my days I have never heard any politician, let alone a POTUS, tout "jobs saved". It is such a ridiculous notion, in that there is no clear metric that that exists to measure such a thing, that it's laughable; except of course to those who would call a pig a horse if they thought folks would buy it.
Anyway, I would like to point out that since I have joined CU, the high quality of my posts has prevented this fine place from having over 2000 members contract leprosy. No need to thank me. It's the least I could do. Anything less would have been nothing at all."The efforts of the government alone will never be enough. In the end the people must choose and the people must help themselves" ~ JFK; from his famous inauguration speech (What Democrats sounded like before today's neo-Liberals hijacked that party)

This is typical big government rhetoric, unfortunately the rhetoric actually succeeds in making people think that the spending is helping. It really does. People can see the bridge that government money built, and they can see the men working on that bridge paid for by government money. So they believe the spending makes things better. What they don't see are all the products from other markets that will never get created because of the diverted funds, nor do they see the future jobs that will be never be created due to lack of demand in other sectors due to the diverted funds.
