I think this is nothing more than a way to funnel money to ACORN to use in buying votes for the next elections.

The funny part is ” this is the only part the President was right about”

JOSEPH BIDEN, Vice President of the United States: Because of the rules, the president and I can’t stop you from doing some things, but I’ll show up in your city and say, “This was a stupid idea.”

You think I’m kidding? This is the only part the president was right about: Don’t mess with Joe, because I mean it. I’m serious, guys. I’m serious. I’m absolutely serious.

What’s different about this stimulus bill is that the federal government has written it in such a way that provides great latitude on the part of city and state officials. The reason for this is so that they could avoid having it tagged as a big pork barrel project that benefits the political hacks that voted for it.

Whatever…he sounded like either he or his audience is OCD.

First, you need to show up at AIG headquarters, where they are trying to get a corner on the stupid idea market.
A visit to former Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson would also be a good move, if you are looking for promoters of stupid ideas; if there were any justice, you would find him in prison.
Then stop off at General Motors, where they are working on designing next year’s stupid idea.
Finally, go back to the Congress (where you voted for TARP) and remind Reid & Pelosi that you don’t cure the results of last year’s stupid idea with this year’s “new model” — that doesn’t work in Washington any more than it does in Detroit.

He needs to listen to himself sometimes. The federal government is far and away the champion of stupid spending. The state and local governments are generally much more sober in their use of taxpayer funds than is are the boobs in Washington.
