831? That was the first year. It was incorporated into the budget and repeated for he rest of his term to no positive effect.

His standard is that unemployment would be kept below 5% if it was passed.

I think he has been reading too many of his own White House press releases.

Yeah, well, when he recoups all those millions from the ‘green’ companies that took our money, then went bankrupt, I might say he has a point. Ain’t gonna happen, though, so I’m safe.

Some wag said "At least Roosevelt had the Hoover Dam and Eisenhower had the national highway system to point to. All Obama has is a falling down Solyndra building."
He wasted all the stimulus money rewarding his donors.

pretty typical Obama strategy, tell a lie with enough conviction to convince the bulk of the idiots that support him

I think so many people have missed that very important point. The stimulus was passed, and got baked into the baseline budget. In effect, the stimulus has continued, year after year, resulting in deficits of over a $trillion for most of his presidency Obamas “stimulus” was closer to $5 trillion dollars and continues to this day, because it never expired. The economy grew at 1 to 2% with the stimulus. I bet it would have done close to that (if not better) without it, and we would not have had the massive run up in the nation debt. As recoveries go, it has been one of the worst on record.

I was thinking about which president’s portraits I might hang on a wall.

Not Obama
Not Clinton
Not Carter
Not Johnson
Not Kennedy
Not FDRoosevelt
Not Wilson
Not Grant
Not Lincoln

I remember my grandfather going on about Wilson’s war, and his income tax, and I remember my grandmother’s sisters bemoaning what Lincoln and Grant did to their South. That’s as early as my family lore takes me.

The stimulus was a successful money laundering scheme. 90% went to unions and 10% to “token” infrastructure. The money from the Union dues was then given to support the Democerat Party...paying for their advertising and support. It was a joke, that’s why we didn’t see anything.
