One last news story...who is actually SURPRISED by this news?

Not me. President Obama has repeatedly said the $787 billion stimulus plan passed by Congress last month would save or create at least 3.5 million jobs. But today House Democrats heard a sharply downsized prediction: 1 million fewer jobs.

  • And as far as all of you b*tching saying this takes time, elnlighten yourselves to what the damn definition of "stimulus" is and realize your messiah lied to you. In order to be a stimulus package
    it has to be Timely, Targeted and Temporary. It is none of these, and you misinformed blind devotees keep asking for TIME for your stimulus package to work. How stupid is that????????

  • Do you really think it takes a day to fix jobs?? It will take even longer than a month. These kind of things dont happen over night. Now if this was Bush you wouldn't care you would wait it out. For real look around it's gonna get a LOT WORSE until it get's BETTER

  • The key word has always been "save". Many pundits have emphasized this for some time now. There in no way to prove or disprove a job that was saved or not, and thus lets Obama off the hook when the plan does not come through as he "HOPED" it would. I believe, he knows this but used it to insinuate to the people it would work and help to make people believe the passage was good for he US. It's all BS and he knows it.
    Stop listening to Obama, and start watching what he does.
