Stimulus Package a.k.a.: Friends of Obama Fund

There has been quite a bit said and published about the success of the Stimulus package. Cited below is from Politico.

""Politico reported on June 5 that the “Stimulus tour” — visits by Mr. Obama and other administration officials “across the country to tout the massive spending program or hand out stimulus cash to grateful local officials” — overwhelmingly took place in states that voted for Obama: “52 of the 66 events were in states that backed Obama.” The other 14 events were in states that Obama lost only narrowly. A new study released by USA Today also finds that counties that voted for Obama received about twice as much stimulus money per capita as those that voted for McCain.""

Consider the above. Obama is in fact rewarding those who voted for him, wooing those who almost helped him get elected and punishing those states who did not vote for him in large majorities. He has totally ignored the Southern States and with these actions shows himself to be the “Chief Pork Barrel Promoter” (also called earmarks). When conservatives pointed out that the Stimulus bill contained these earmarks he dismissed them as old business. Now we see that the money that has been distributed has not been spent on the basis of need but to the Gigantic Obama Pork Program to promote him and increase loyalty to him.

Never in my life did I ever expect to see so dangerous a politician in the presidency. I might have expected to see someone like this in some ideological socialist group. (Consider his Chicago roots.) Obama is not only in power but he is wielding as a hammer and sickle. The presidency is not for personal politics but is for benefit of the American people as a nation: all of us.

The Stimulus Program has of late been reported as ineffective in helping the American economy. I am not so sure it was ever intended to.
