So I’m at work last night and the patient I’m working with is watching CNN (I swear to God I didn’t turn it on — it was on by accident. I’m a Fox News Boy at heart.) President Obama is addressing some Democrats in Virginia, and it’s really a good speech. I can’t watch it because I’m occupied with the patient, but it’s a pretty good speech, really. He almost, almost has me convinced to give the Stimulus Package a second glance.
Right up until the point where he says this: “Now, I’ve heard the Republicans think there’s too much Spending in the Stimulus package. That’s what a Stimulus IS!”
And that’s when I first looked at the screen.
Job a little harder than you thought, Barack? Nancy pelosi’s commandeering of the writing of the “Stimulus” Bill has balloned it ot over $920 BILLION. (From the original $350 Billions.) Even Democrats – the conservative ones – are beginning to balk.
Don’t give up now, Republicans. No compromise — NO Stimulus package, period.
