It was just a matter of getting something, anything passed to keep the base somewhat happy they just didn't want a bucket of fail to sit on obama desk based on another huge campaign promise.
So its a bill that even when it does kick in 3 yrs from now doesn't do much, but looks good in a commercial. I wonder if Obama can pull it off. Just stay in the same mode and no matter what blame bush, say things will get better, say you are doing a good job.
Meanwhile all he's really done is spend more then we have ever seen before. We thought Bush not fiscally conservative, hell Clinton now looks the most fiscally conservative of them all lol!!!.
Obama setting a whole new standard for spending and what has it got him?
At least the tarp package Bush put together ended up working. The stimulus did nothing.
