OMG! Didn't the Stimulus Fix That?

 The facepalming continues...

I get tired of hearing Obama complain about partisan politics. Has he stopped to consider that perhaps Democrats should also be concerned about the explosion of our national debt and an endless stream of useless assistance programs that do little to correct the fundamental problems of our terminally ill economy?


President Barack Obama blasted Senate Republicans on Monday for blocking a small business assistance bill, calling their opposition "pure partisan politics."

The country needs a "full scale attack" on economic sluggishness, he told reporters at the White House.

"While we have taken a series of measures and come a long way ... too many Americans are still looking for work and too many communities are far from being whole again," he said.

The president also said his economic team is "hard at work" on a series of new measure designed both to spark short-term hiring and lay the foundation for long-term economic growth.

What the country really needs is a full scale attack on this economic asshattery that claims writing another blank check for ___________ (insert bailout here) is the solution to all of our problems. How is it that we even need a small business bailout if the stimulus worked so well to fix our unemployment problem?

Or is it that it didn't and the Obama administration is full of shit?

Gee, I wonder.

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.

I'm sure if he threatens businesses with more regulations, fees, and taxes, that they'll hire workers again. Nevermind that these things have ALWAYS had the opposite effect throughout history.

As horrifying as it is, the out of control spending is actually a completely separate problem.
