One Year Anniversary of Trillion Dollar Stimulus, Obama Applauds as Success … Where are the Jobs?


The One Year Anniversary of the $787 billion jobs bill … how’s the “hopee, changee” thing doing for you?

It was the one year anniversary of the Obama/Democrat $787 billion stimulus package that was supposed to keep unemployment at 8% and create so many shovel ready jobs. The only thing that appeared to be “shovel ready” was Obama and his minions rhetoric.

A note to America … you know when you know that a government spending plan that promises to create jobs is an abject failure? When you have to be told just how good a plan it is and the successes of the plan by the people who gave you the plan.

That is exactly what Barack Obama and his minions did yesterday as they spread out across the country to tell unemployed Americans just how great Obama’s $787 billion spending plan was for job. Americans know just what an EPIC FAILURE this bill was and for Obama and his band of merry men to claim the benefits of this colossal disaster only further proves why his poll numbers have tanked and the people do not trust Obama on the economy.

Obama, in a White House speech, said he believed the stimulus will save or create 1.5 million jobs in 2010 after saving or creating as many as 2 million jobs thus far.

His point was to show that the stimulus, while admittedly unpopular, had the effect of keeping the U.S. economy from plunging into a second Great Depression.

House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) – “Today’s anniversary of the Democrats’ trillion-dollar ‘stimulus’ marks one year of broken promises, bloated government, and wasteful spending.”

“Where are the jobs?”

The Gateway Pundit has more of Republican Whip Eric Cantor list of top 12 lowlights from the Democrat Stimulus bill from this past year. Think your hard earned tax dollars were well spent on this pork barrel spending bill disguised as a jobs stimulus bill? Check out what your money was spent on. Here are just a couple of gems.

6. Did You Save 30 Seconds On Your Last Trip Through Thedford, Nebraska? $7 million in taxpayer stimulus funds are being used to build a bridge in Thedford, Nebraska. The purpose of the bridge? Helping 168 residents avoid a 30 second wait at a local train crossing.

12. At Least You Can Skateboard While Your Town Goes Bankrupt The city of Pawtucket, Rhode Island, which has a $5.2 million school budget deficit and about a $4.8 million municipal deficit and has eliminated about 40 city jobs so far this year, announced that they will spend $550,000 in federal stimulus money to construct a skateboard park at a local school, because it is “shovel-ready.”

    7. super dave on February 18th, 2010 1:55 pm

      prepare yourselves folks, the obama mafia is about to force the deathcare bill through reconciliation.
      if you don’t know already, Vancouver, BC is favoring euthanasia for the old and the same will happen here.

      Some Democrats want out of it all completely….I’m sure there are illegal issues taking place that are against the Constitution and they do not want to be held liable….

      #2 – What you should have written is: My name is Buster and I am so Un-American I would like to see the President of the United States murdered.

      Because that is what you have said in the past. Let me guess, your new hero is Joe Stack – the teabagger terrorist that flew into the IRS today?

      You teabaggers with your angry, racist populist movement must be so proud today.

      Plant closing was announced in my town today! 320 jobs gone! That is pretty significant in a town of 13,000.

      Obama, where’s the beef?

    11. brie. on February 19th, 2010 2:09 am

      ATTENTION EVERYONE; Obama is on a mission to destroy America!!!

      Per CNN: Obama, Dalai, Lama meeting could irritate China very much. Despite strong objections from the President, Obama will meet the Dalai Lama, the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader, at the White House on Thursday. China has warned that it will certainly damage ties to Washington. It will seriously undermine the SINO–US politician politican relations. Zhu Weiqun, a senior COMMUNIST PARTY, leader in charge of ethnic & religious affairs, warned recently.

      Obama’s meeting is also troublesome for the Chinese. He could of met him as a spiritual leader in a neutral place like a church but he choose to receive him in the White House and that is a political act and that is going to irritate China very much. Now the meeting will take place as several pickey issue have come between Washington & Beijing including trade disputes, a recent US Arm sales for Taiwan, which China considers an illegitimate breakway province and a censorship row over internet search engine Google Inc. Some analysts said the Chinese could retailate by cutting off political exchanges as they did after the Daiai Lama met with the heads of France & Germany. Neither China nor the US can afford strained relations, said douglas Paar, a diplomat & investment banker who has served as a presidential advisor on China. We both need each other, he said, for a number of international security issues and to deal with Global climate crisis.

      Where is our Homeland Security and why is Obama getting away with this especially knowing the consequences. They need to remove him from office because of seriously jeopardizing our country….PRONTO

      Obama needs to be seriously investigated…is he a communist & what is his connection to the Taliban.

      The White House doesn’t belong to Obama, it belongs to us and to invite someone that you well know brings monumental trouble to our country is extremely dangerous.

      Obama is a psychopath…he makes enemies for us everywhere he goes and sends messages of complete dislike for our country…why cause problems with China, we are in monumental debt to them…things didn’t go his way with his recent visit to China, so he retaliates like a spoiled, out of control, temper tantrum child….!!!!!

      We have never had anything this bad with any of our former Presidents….!!!!!

      Any proof of your slander against the guy that flew the plane into the IRS building was a tea party member or terrorist? STFU!

      Oh how about the Alabama professor who was a left wing extremist OBSESSED with Obama who gunned down three colleagues who obviously disagreed with her bleeding liberal tree hugging views and used facts and logic in regards to Obama’s failing presidency.

      If you want to annoy a liberal just use facts and logic and they can’t win ANY argument.

      Leeches of society like yoyo, who don’t pay anything into the system but lives on those that do will do anything to protect that without using any kind of logic.

      Yep. The tea party people are real violent…sure you idiot. Do some research on history and what side uses violence and what side doesn’t. Hmmm…the name WeatherUnderground comes to mind with Bill Ayers who said they didn’t do enough (meaning deaths) when they tried to blow up buildings. Let’s think back to the disgusting and violent behavior the liberals hippies showed towards our troops returning from Vietnam. Facts don’t matter to leeches like this.

      #12 short eyes – Ever hear of Tim McVeigh?

      Nice try racist tin-foil teabagger #12.

      How do I know you’re racist:
      scott on November 4th, 2008 12:19 pm
      Obama has NOT won Ohio and will NOT win Ohio.

      High black turnout due to those that actually work (white) have not voted yet.

      We will!

      Now tell me again how you’re not a racist #12? Lol.

    14. super dave on February 19th, 2010 1:09 pm

      now yoho, you know that there is no such thing as racism. your libcrat party politicians are the present form of plantation owners. they hold the minorities down to use their votes but actually do nothing for these people.
      so take your racism propaganda to your own party and confront them with your excuse.

    15. Scott on February 22nd, 2010 7:34 am

      You are a bonafide idiot. It wasn’t a racist comment is was a realist comment. You seriously have no life and need to get out of your momma’s row house. Unfortunately, the black turnout and independents turned out and Obama won Ohio; but those people have buyers remorse and so does the majority of Americans.

      Not sure how that’s racist. It’s a fact, that the race that pays less into the system is black. It’s a straight up fact.

      We all know who the true racist is yoyo…YOU and your liberal idiot friends.

      You have no idea who I am and who my friends are…man I must so racist that one of my closest friends in the world, who is black, just signed up his kid to play t-ball and asked the league to put him on my team.

      Liberals are easy to read.

      Dredging up stuff from 20 years ago? Nice try. Try again.

      Read the idiots manifesto, it reeks of a liberal. You can relate to that guy.
