A Double Defeat For Obama
A Double Defeat for Obama. He got not one single Republican vote in Congress, and he got a watered-down stimulus package containing many ineffective tax cuts and eliminating key infra-structure spending programs designed to put people back to work. It's time for Obama to stop paying so much attention to the GOP whose discredited economic ideas have been repudiated in two consecutive elections. Obama's futile "post-partisanship" has merely allowed Republicans to weaken the effectiveness of the stimulus bill and has not produced a single favorable GOP vote for this diluted package.
