    The stimulus cost 800 billion dollars and created almost 3 million jobs inside of 2 years.

    The Bush tax cuts cost about 2.5 trillion and created about 3 million jobs in 8 years, IF we account every job created in those 8 years to the tax cuts.

    If everything the dems do is so perfect, and everything they touch is so great, then why aren't all Americans democrats? Why do they have to actuallly campaign to win elections rather than get swept into office easily?

    $800 billion/3 million=$266,666 per job. So, where are the $266K jobs. I want one.

    Also, the Bush Tax Cuts weren't soley to create jobs. It was supposed to stimulate the economy. And it did. It allowed people to keep more of what they earn(there a word you will never understand). The stimulus, however, did nothing of the kind. Studying the mating habits of monkeys on crack is hardly a stimulus. Or to analyze bat droppings. Obama's stimulus money went to special interests and cronies. Bush's tax cuts went back to the people. Which do you prefer?

    Stimulus waste:

    *Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida used $15,551 in stimulus money to pay two researchers to study how alcohol affects a mouse's motor functions.

    *The U.S. government handed over a staggering $54 million in "stimulus cash" to Connecticut's politically-connected Mohegan Indian tribe, which runs one of the highest grossing casinos in the country.

    *Syracuse professor of psychology Michael Carey received $219,000 in federal stimulus money for a study that examines the sex patterns of college women.

    *$1.15 million in stimulus funds was allocated for the installation of a new guard rail around the non-existent Optima Lake in Oklahoma.

    *Researchers at the State University of New York at Buffalo received $389,000 to pay 100 residents of Buffalo $45 each to record how much malt liquor they drink and how much pot they smoke each day. Instead of spending nearly $400,000, the U.S. government could have achieved the same goal by having a couple of scientists join a fraternity.

    *$100,000 in federal stimulus funds were used for a martini bar and a brazilian steakhouse.

    *A dinner cruise company in Chicago got nearly $1 million in stimulus funds to combat terrorism.

    *$233,000 in stimulus money went to the University of California at San Diego to study why Africans vote.

    *The Cactus Bug Project at the University Of Florida was allocated $325,394 in stimulus funds to study the mating decisions of cactus bugs. According to the project proposal, one of the questions that will be answered by the study is this: "Whether males with large weapons are more or less attractive to females."

    *One Denver developer received $13 million in tax credits to construct a senior housing complex despite that fact that the same developer is being sued as a slumlord for running rodent-infested apartment buildings in the city of San Francisco.

    *Sheltering Arms Senior Services was awarded a contract worth $22.3 million in stimulus money to weatherize homes for poor families in Houston, Texas - but a new report from Texas Watchdog says that the weatherization work was performed so badly that 33 of the 53 homes will need to be completely redone.

    *A liberal theater in Minnesota named "In the Heart of the Beast" (in reference to a well known quote by communist radical Che Guevara) received $100,000 for socially conscious puppet shows.

    *California's inspector general found that $1 million in stimulus funds for a program to give summer jobs to young people was improperly used for overhead expenses such as rent and utility bills.

    *Landon Cox, a Duke University assistant professor of computer science, was awarded $498,000 in stimulus money to study Facebook.

    *The town of Union, New York is being urged to spend $578,000 in stimulus money that it did not request for a homelessness problem that it claims it does not have.

    *Lastly, who could forget the $3.4 million "ecopassage" to help turtles cross a highway in Tallahassee, Florida?http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/a...stimulus-waste

    In 4 of the last 5 Presidential elections the American people gave the Dems more votes than the GOP , take away 9-11 and it's 5 of 5

    America is center left , The republicans said so themselves when they ALL said Obama would be the most liberal president ever , and then he won is a massive landslide , getting more votes than anybody in history.

    You must either be thick headed, a troll looking to stir the shit pot, or just plain stupid. As I said in your other inane thread, the elections of 1992 and '96, a majority of American voters did not want Clinton as their president. But you ignore this.
