President Barack Obama is heading to Florida to tout the benefits of the massive economic stimulus bill he signed shortly after taking office seven years ago.
Obama pumped more than $760 billion into a then-slumping economy beginning in early 2009 in a frantic effort to halt the worst economic downturn in generations. It was an unsettling period for many Americans as hundreds of thousands of jobs disappeared, unemployment climbed into double digits and home values plummeted.
Obama will argue during a stop in Jacksonville on Friday that the country is on a more solid footing because of this and other "tough choices" he made early in his first term.
"I think by all measures ... there's no denying that the American people and our nation are in much better condition than it was seven years ago," said Obama's spokesman, Josh Earnest. ...

And not a penny was wasted due the tireless oversight of “Stimulus Sheriff” SlowJoe Biden.
And Hillary’s accomplishments
Who actually listens to this guy?
Holy smokes. This reeks of the Soviet Politburo.
Except that the Soviet Politburo might not have believed their own crap they fed to others.
Hope and Change!
One Question Resident Obama:
You were entrusted with $900 billion dollars in Stimulus money to rebuild the nations infrastructure and finance “shovel ready jobs” that you later admitted never really existed?
That $900 billion seems to have magically vaporized with no physical evidence that it ever existed.
Will you account to America for the $900 billion dollars placed under your care?
Yeah and the longest running recession recovery in US history.
I was completely unaware that Obama pushed legislation that lowered taxes and regulations to create a more business friendly climate in Florida.
GOLF GOLF GOLF ,nothing else
He should go down to Liberty City and tell everybody how great they’ve got it. Hey, they live in abject poverty while the black politicians they vote for live in mansions, but they got their Obama phones.
Allah we got from Hussein is more jihadiis!
Sounds just like the USSR.
Imagine a Republican doing that, and the "1%" smear campaign that would ensue by MSM/left-wing pols/pundits.
(shhhhh...don't say a word, he`s OUR turd)
Into the “black hole” that is Jacksonville, FL- and speak to his “constituencies”— minority machine leaders, the “enviro-whacko” white guilt stoners, and.... the banks and insurance cos. who are still getting fedgov money in their coffers to trickle down to their investment accounts and overseas speculation (not shovel ready at home work they would finance).
OH, and be sure to expect a cameo appearance by the never-ending grafter and skimmer— Rep. Corrine Brown— cause “Corrine Delivers!” (her slogan- seriously) to her uh, “constituents”. Corrupt annnnnd self-righteous at the same time.
The juxtaposition of Jacksonian democrats (who formed the city so named), the black lib/enviro machine, and the overrun with freaking liberal Yankees and their Northern mob go-betweens-— lies just to the north of Ponte Vedra and the PGA...
the PEE GEE AAAAAAA! So obamaumao can play better golf in Cuba. Maybe he could stop in Daytona and visit Batista’s descendants (where Batista flew after Fidel took Havana). Always watch where the grifters and rip off artists go, and what they will do. This dictator thinks he will stay in DC and that people will listen to him.
Still Report #628 - Carrier Corp Got $5M Obama Stimulus
8 years and counting, and counting, and counting. Still digging the way out of this hole.
Hey, Bernie Fans.....$960 million would have paid off a LOT of student loans!
Well, there were all those green-energy projects. How many jobs were not produced by them?
