    what's a presidential "claim" if not a "promise?"

    So? Is it the first claim by a president that didn't come true? Hell, Bush claimed the economy was sound right before it crashed and burned. Didn't he also claim that Iraq had stockpiles of WMDs? Presidential promises don't mean diddly.

    USA, what do you believe an acceptable unemployment rate would be 1 1/2 years after an 842 billion stimulus plan was passed? It was 7.6% when he took office.

    Then tell me exactly what you think the role of the Congress was in this crisis since we do not elect a King. The argument that it was worse than we thought seems to me passing the buck and ignoring the Congressional responsibility. Why wouldn't the Congress know what was happening in the country?

    Surely to be followed by a "it wasn't big enough" response from the far left. A majority of economists believe that this debt monster failed to provide the boost that was promised.
    They've only used 1/3 of the stimulus package, and those economists must know it, so why are they playing this silly game? Getting the money to the company who will do the most good takes months of investigation, sometimes years.

    What did Obama say in promoting the Stimulus bill? Did he tell you that it would take years and if so post that quote?

    He we are 1 1/2 after passage so tell me what your expectations were as far as unemployment, economic growth, the deficit, and the debt?

    With only 1/3 of the stimulus spent, does it bother you that the deficit for this fiscal year will still be 1.6 trillion dollars?

    unless of course when Bush was in the WH, right? Everything that happened to cause the financial crisis was Bush's fault but now it is Congress' fault for the failure of Obama to keep promises. I'll bet you don't even know how stupid your comments were.
