Some Lowlights from Barry's opening screed

What it does not contain, however, is a single pet project, not a single earmark, and it has been stripped of the projects members of both parties found most objectionable.


Now despite all of this, the plan's not perfect. No plan is. I can't tell you for sure that everything in this plan will work exactly as we hope, but I can tell you with complete confidence that a failure to act will only deepen this crisis, as well as the pain felt by millions of Americans.

My administration inherited a deficit of over $1 trillion,
(So whats 8 Trillion more down the road?) but because we also inherited the most profound economic emergency since the Great Depression, doing little or nothing at all will result in ever -- (even The NYT's transcript can't make this duffous sound smart) even greater deficits, even greater job loss, even greater loss of income and even greater loss of confidence.

Those are deficits that could turn a crisis into a catastrophe, and I refuse to let that happen. As long as I hold this office, I will do whatever it takes to put this economy back on track and put this country back to work.

So my question is this, how is 7.6% unemployment the same as 33%?
Yes things are really bad, a crapload of my friends are un or under employed. But running around like a chicken in a childrens story will not help.

Also as this chart show the unempoyment figures for the early 80's were worse than what we are facing now!

Yes we need to do something but direct tax cuts and smaller spending plans are far better than this giant Federal Black Hole of Debt that three generations hence will still be paying for.

But it looks like those wonderfull RINO's from Maine and Arty Specktor, are going to help out the MOST CLUELESS MAN TO EVER SIT IN THE WHITE HOUSE, and that includes Jimmah Carter.
