Dear Democrats: The Stimulus Worked, Start Acting Like It

About the only people on the planet who say the 2009 Recovery Act (ARRA) failed are Republicans. This is a necessary posture for them, given that not one of them voted for it. They have too much ideology vested in its failure to admit success, which is why they attack projects like Solyndra and green energy in particular. It's why the Republican governors in Republican states reject high-speed rail and other infrastructure projects. It isn't that it wouldn't be great for their states. It's simply that the funds came into being via the Democrat in the Oval Office and thin majority of Democrats in Congress, and so they just cannot, will not, bring themselves to be a party to possible success.

7:25 Only if your a communist. You can say that the U.S is one step closer to becoming a comminist state. And if you happen to be a democratic supporteer(alias communist) you may have gotten a huge payback for helping get Barack elected.
