    You want to compare what a cruise missile cost with losing 535 million on Solyndra, let me put it to you this way, at least we got something for our investment in a cruise missile, and we got nothing for our investment in Solyndra. Well, we did get something, an increase in our national debt. Thank you very much.

    How much benefit did we get out of the $12 billion that disappeared off the back of a pickup truck in Iraq?

    One of those wrongs was about 24X wronger than the other. Surprisingly I don't recall a lot of upset among the conservative community.

    I was upset about it. As a matter of fact I was/am upset about the war to start with. same with the escalation in Afghanistan, but then again I am not part of the conservative community. Just a someone who blindly agrees with a political statement just because it was made by a democrat.

    If obama never said it then why didn't he point that out in a news conference when he could have, based on a question from a reporter?

    Still want to stick to that?

    You can have your own opinion but not you own facts.

    YOu do realize that a large portion of our debt is due to unfunded wars and the unfunded tripling of the military over the last decade, right?

    You can have your own opinion but not you own facts.
    What the administration said was that they estimated that the stimulus would keep unemployment under eight percent, but they also noted that there was a high margin of error in the calculation. They obviously underestimated the severity of the recession, as the unemployment rate even with the stimulus ended up exceeding their worst-case estimate. The main point was that the stimulus would reduce unemployment by 2-3% over what it would have been otherwise, and most economists agree that it succeeded in that respect.

    And to recap, you claimed that Obama "promised" that unemployment would never exceed 8% if the stimulus passed, and that he never did.

    Name for me one economic "promise" made by Obama that has been kept? His record is quite clear and the question is why do you still support him?
