With peas, acrobatics, sports and writing being the main topics at today's press conference, you may have missed a key moment when President Obama announced the stimulus was a success. And this wasn't just his opinion; there is evidence too!

"Without relitigating the past, I’m absolutely convinced, and the vast majority of economists are convinced, that the steps we took in the Recovery Act saved millions of people their jobs or created a whole bunch of jobs," President Obama said at his presser on Monday morning.

Did this empty suit even litigate a case in his legal "career"? Maybe the Acorn one, but any others?

18,000 “new jobs” is an average of 360 per state in the entire month of June.

Well, maybe, just maybe the Messiah is getting a little more honest, having gone from "saving or creating" two million jobs to "or created a whole bunch of jobs,".

The reality is that no matter how the economy has reacted these last two years, and no matter the real cause for those reactions, to Obama and his people nothing good happened in the economy except by means of what they did, and nothing they did hurt the economy in any way - even though the economy is actually stalled as it attempts to digest all the new taxes and regulatory burdens expanding over the future via Obamacare and Dodd-Frankenstein.

Minus Obamacare, and all Obama's new taxes, minus Dodd-Frankenstein and minus the radicalized EPA under Obama and the economy would be booming right now. That's the economic truth.

Why is the economy stalled right now? Obama, Obama, and Obama.

18,000 divided by the 57 states is more like 316/state

What an idiot.

Is Obama an idiot OR is Obama and his handlers proving Americans (collectively, of course) are idiots?

Obama keeps telling us the "Stimulus" was effective. UCLA economists asked the question, WHY did the Great Depression last so long? The answer was FDR and his socialist spending made the recession into the great Depression and made it last SEVEN YEARS longer. Germany's economy was rolling, the US was hungry and it took WWII to get the US moving again.

When Obama used US Military forces to attack Libya, did you understand why? Did you become concerned when you found out Al Qaeda WAS the Libyan Rebels?

How about Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood? Sworn to destroy Israel, did it bother you the US Has to borrow $Billions from China to give to Egypt? Did the recent revelation that Obama wants to give hundreds of US tanks to Egypt set off another alarm? What will Egypt do with tanks, attack Israel?

Did it bother you that Obama demanded Israel withdraw to pre-1967 borders? Do you realize that Israel would be defenseless if they do that?

Everything Obama is doing is PRO-Muslim and Anti-US but until the Presstitutes tell you that is true, America sits and watches Obama destroy the country.

Open Borders? No drilling in Gulf driving up energy prices. Amnesty for illegals?

Everything Obama is doing is hurting the US and is exactly what a Muslim plant as Potus would do. Is Obama an idiot? No, Obama is a traitor and he's getting away with it because Americans are idiots.

Good point. We are all realizing that we have to get rid of Obama to have a recovery, will we get a huge war in the Middle East too? Obama is doing everything he can to set up what Muslims see as the beginning of the end of the Israel, Europe and America.
