Posted on 02/18/2014 7:56:16 PM PST by RC one
In a speech marking the five-year anniversary of his $831 billion economic stimulus plan, President Barack Obama said on Tuesday that his plan, passed one month into his presidency, succeeded and that his critics were proven wrong and "have had to eat those words."

His confidence in the press to reinforce his lies is unbounded.
Sounds like somebody been hittin’ da happy smoke.
Examples of his stimulus success would be greatly appreciated. I sure as crap don’t see any.
The US economy right now is growing on the backs of oil/gas patch despite obama doing what he can to throttle them.
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.
His arrogance and juvenile remarks are only surpassed by his stupidity.
This is “success”?
Well if be said it, it must be true!
This guy and all liberals live in an alternate universe from normal people.
Ya know..... It DID succeed in destroying the economy for the next 6 years.
Which WAS his goal .....
success and failure are indistinguishable in lala land
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.
Obama is nothing if not delusional... So to be fair to the first black president we also must participate in his delusions? Sick!!
“theres no success like failure..and failure’s no success at all”..Bob Dylan 1965
Employment tanked under the Marxist’s regime. Over 4 million jobs lost.
pretty typical Obama strategy, tell a lie with enough conviction to convince the bulk of the idiots that support him
We only ‘eat our words’ because in the O-conomy, we can’t afford food.
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.
He has Obamacare and the 2.5 million jobs it cost too.
He even LIES to himself!
I was thinking about which president’s portraits I might hang on a wall.
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.
His stimulus plan succeeded???
This whacko is full of sh*t.
Comrades! Rejoice! Brother Obama has raised our weekly chocolate rations from 14 grams to 10 grams!
This alternative - universe insanity would be hilarious if we all didn’t have to suffer through the Great Obsma Depression for another three years
Honestly doc, he talks like he’s in junior high.
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.
