You must pardon the American people Mr. President if we don’t celebrate the Administration’s touting Recovery Summer. Between the high unemployment, health care reform nonsense, and the federal government response to Gulf of Mexico oil spill the public’s faith in the federal government is waning. Meanwhile,President Obama and Vice-President Biden will be touring the country during a six-week campaign to remind the American people what a great job the administration did with the economy via stimulus based shovel ready jobs.
The administration will trout out an increase in stimulus spending will lead to 3.5 million “saved or created jobs” Today, President Obama will visit Columbus,OH to celebrate the nations 10,000 recovery act job site at Nationwide Children’s Hospital.. While Vice President Biden will travel Monday to Midland, MI to break ground at Dow Kokam battery plant.
White House Senior Advisor David Axelrod said on Thursday:
“This summer will be the most active Recovery Act season yet, with thousands of highly-visible road, bridge, water and other infrastructure projects breaking ground across the country, giving the American people a first-hand look at the Recovery Act in their own backyards and making it crystal clear what the cost would have been of doing nothing. … In the face of the greatest economic crisis since the Great Depression, Republicans in Congress chose to play politics with economic recovery and declared the Recovery Act a failure before it even began. They made a cynical bet that if the President fails, they win. Democrats chose to act by tackling the crisis head-on. Just over a year later, the Recovery Act is putting millions of Americans to work and helping the economy grow again. But our work is far from over.”
Man I am encouraged Woo-Hoo!!!! Let’s Party like it’s 1999! Um O.K. maybe not!
