This is a pretty funny political cartoon, because it compares Republicans who are a no-go on the stimulus to "corrupt and deceitful" regimes, which Obama made the fist comments about during his inaugural address. This means that if you don't support a trillion dollars for a pork-laden monstrosity, you're a fucking terrorist! haha.
This parlays with the Democrats trying to blame The One's failed bipartisan support on a media personality, which might be a winning political strategy if you're reading the Hugo Chavez playbook. They've also unleashed a series of imbeciles to counter the so called "right wing noise" machine. The spokeswoman on Cavuto who forgot to take her meds and tried defending the stimulus package was incredibly humorous, particularly when she talked about buckets of money.
When you have the political opposition calling you traitors, you know you're doing something right and they are getting desperate. So, before we commit national suicide by passing this multi-headed hydra of wasteful spending, drop the cheesy rhetoric and consider what's in it. From Director Blue:
• $83 billion in welfare payments (the earned income credit for people who don't pay income tax)And the President wants to cut out 10% of the DoD's budget, but spend more on keeping reliable voters on the dole? The Democrats strategy of patriot economics doesn't add up. Nice try though.
• $81 billion for Medicaid
• $66 billion on "education", more than the entire Department of Education required just ten years ago
• $36 billion for expanded unemployment benefits
• $20 billion for food stamps
• $8 billion on "renewable energy" projects, which have a low or negative return
• $7 billion for "modernizing federal buildings and facilities"
• $6 billion on urban transit systems, dominated by unions and which, almost universally, lose money
• $2.4 billion for "carbon-capture demonstration projects"
• $2 billion for child-care subsidies
• $1 billion for Amtrak, the federal railroad that's run in the red for 40 years
• $650 million for "digital TV conversion coupons" (on top of billions already spent)
• $600 million on new cars for government (added to the $3 billion already spent each year)
• $400 million for "global-warming research"
• $50 million for the National Endowment for the Arts
