    Yes, it did what it was supposed to do, which was to reduce unemployment by several million and give a significant boost to GDP.

    As we've gone over several times, initial estimates of the strength of the recession were overly optimistic. Recall that the administration forecast unemployment just a little over 9% even WITHOUT the stimulus.

    Interesting, have you taken your "theory" to the Bureau of Labor Statistics since thay don't show those numbers and don't recognize jobs saved. Wonder what Obama was doing collecting a paycheck as a Senator that he wouldn't recognize how bad things were and allowed his Administration officials to make the bogus claim about 8%?

    Lord forbid that we have a group of people questioning the 3.7 trillion dollar spending spree that Congress is on and the 14.6 trillion dollar debt that taxpayers are now funding. How do you justify that kind of spending

    People sometimes ask hard questions at townhalls....

    WOMAN: When the Bush tax cuts took effect in 2003 the unemployment rate was 6.2 percent. Now, in the ninth year of those cuts, the unemployment rate is 9.2 percent, so where is the evidence that these cuts for the most affluent actually create jobs? [...]

    (Audience applauds)

    HULTGREN: I think clearly the evidence, uh, well, let me say this. I get back to the stimulus, which was another thing which –

    MAN: We want the tax cuts?

    WOMAN: Where’s the evidence?

    ANOTHER WOMAN: Where are the jobs?

    HULTGREN: Good question. Let’s keep goin’. We got three minutes.

    (MULTIPLE AUDIENCE MEMBERS): No answer! [...]

    HULTGREN: I believe we’ve got a tax system that discourages productivity. We have to adjust that. It has to be flatter. [...] Not too long ago we raised taxes in Illinois, just in the past eight months, they already told us they spent all that money. [...] My evidence is Illinois being the number one job creator for Indiana, Iowa.

    I assume that you and your wife are sending your Bush tax cut back when you receive your paycheck? What you fail to recognize as usual is that the unemployment rate dropped from 2003-2007 and then the financial crisis that had nothing to do with the tax cuts. Obama took office and made things worse by negatiing the benefits of the tax cuts with increased regulations, obamacare, and the threat of higher taxes on business.

    Latest polls on the 2012 election from gallup showing Obama vs. the various Republican candidates. No wonder Obama is getting scared and turning to the politics of personal destruction.

    It's the same "theory" you were once repeating here ...


    "Don't you just love the Obama results? 15 million unemployed, 3.5 trillion added to the debt, 821 billion stimulus program that created or "saved" jobs that cost the taxpayer $228,000 each. Those are the results "your" President generated and why he got shellacked in 2010." ~ Conservative


    Even you once claimed the results of Obama's stimulus saved/created 3.5 million jobs.

    You need to become the Obama campaign manager as he seems to need it. Amazing how Obama is doing such a good job that his approval rating is in the low 40% and now he is being beaten by Romney, tied with Perry, and close to Bachmann and Paul. Looks like the public isn't buying those positive Obama results that you keep claiming
