This is not in the least hypocritical.

So Bachmann criticized the program as a giant boondoggle and a waste of govenrment money and campaigned on that position while at the same time grabbing all that wasted boondoggle money she could get her hands on. And you don't find that even a leeetle bit hypocritical?

Not in the slightest. Just pragmatic. Making the best of a bad situation, while trying to make sure the bad situation never happens again. It isn’t as if she could protect the taxpayers of Minnesota by refusing to take any stimulus money. She would just be hurting them.

I guess it is water under the bridge at the moment.

So shouldn't we be asking if the money she grabbed went to boondoggles in her state or did the stimulus funds generate the intended results. Jobs, wealth, income?

I stand some what corrected in that NONE of her requests were funded. So thereby we will never know if the projects would have had the intended results.
