We saw growth continue throughout 2010 — even after Democrats passed health care reform and Wall Street reform — while Republicans did everything in their power to stop it.

We are now seeing a comical shift in Republican talking points. Republicans who were saying “the stimulus failed” are now saying “our policies have saved the economy.” The ridiculous part of it all is they are claiming credit for policies THAT HAVEN’T EVEN BEEN VOTED ON, and a new Republican House majority that’s been in power for TWO WEEKS.

It’s hard to understand why anyone votes for these clowns.

Money he had to have in 2009 to save the country from economic ruin. If he spent the money in 2009 and failed, how would he get the only job he cares about? His second term. He has a bird in the hand. When he starts his reelection campaign, he will double up on cash for clunkers, and new home buyer tax credits. With over 500 billion of your tax dollars in his war chest what can stop him? He will buy you off with your own money. Only He knows what is best for you.
