    Is the definition of "working" now to include only a temporary, slowing of the obvious? Look, stimulus if it did anything, it was a pay off to the union constituents, and donor/supporter network that just didn't help the overall economy, or the average working sector one damned bit.

    One other thing it showed clearly is that Obama is an abject liar that will be defeated in '12.

    Only in the liberal world can you add 4.4 trillion to the debt, have a net job loss, and a rising misery index can that be called a success.

    The Tonopah Solar company in Harry Reid's Nevada is getting a $737 million loanfrom Obama's DOE.
    The project will produce a 110 megawatt power system and employ 45 permanentworkers.
    That's costing us just $16 million per job.

    One of the investment partners in this endeavor is Pacific Corporate Group(PCG).
    The PCG executive director is Ron Pelosi who is the brother of Nancy's husband.

    So basically, what the 2004 UCLA study concluded was that inflated prices and wages were the cause of the slowed recovery, and the NIRA which FDR signed into law was the cause of that inflation, resulting in a 60% weaker recovery.

    Since it is dishonest you shouldn't have any problem proving it wrong? Amazing how sourced data is wrong and dishonest.

    The best thing you can do when you get owned like that is to either acknowledge the good post or just be quiet.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    If you call funding every Libbos wet dream for the past 30 years, including turtle tunnels and deer underpasses, then it was a smashing success.

    As far as actually boosting the economy and helping the economy, it was a miserable failure.
