This stimulus bill is huge, so disastrous, and so harmful to our country that even though Obama has been in office for less than a month, I think it’s already fair to label him as one of the worst Presidents in American history. – John Hawkins, Right Wing News
I would hate to hear what he thinks about a President who started two wars he couldn’t finish, doubled the national debt, listlessly presided over numerous crises foreign and domestic, left a deficit of a trillion dollars, presided over an economic crash, and left office with the lowest approval ratings ever. I bet he just savages someone like that.
Oh, wait. Nevermind.
*** Update ***
By way of comparison, the “huge” and “disastrous” stimulus bill is now set at $789 billion dollars. If you take out the tax cuts, which I am presuming the Republicans will approve of, that means that basically the bill is about $400 billion in spending. So $400 billion to try to pad the fall in a crashing economy, as compared to this:
The White House released budget figures yesterday indicating that the new Medicare prescription drug benefit will cost more than $1.2 trillion in the coming decade, a much higher price tag than President Bush suggested when he narrowly won passage of the law in late 2003.
Perspective- Right Wing News ain’t got it. Of all the wars the Republicans have launched, the War on Irony is the only one they have a clear shot at winning.
