Because nobody is better at lying than the rightwing spin machine and the dipshits that listen to those fuckwads are the braindrain on the nation. Smart conservatives know the stimulus worked, are aware of the actual numbers that are easy enough to find, but are rightly concerned about the deficit spending anyways. The dipshits think BO is a socialist, is trying to ruin america, is a terrorist sympathizer, is going to take their guns, ad nauseum. Im sure you see the difference. Most of the dipshits didnt care a whit about DC until they lost their jobs, then glenn beck told them it was all BO's fault, and they believed his dumbass.

Again, cause the right wing spin machine has been very effective at reframing the debate so much so that for the dems to have tried to push anything thru would have resulted in trouble come 2010. AND, that is why folks like evan bayh are saying "fuck it", their colleagues on the left are spineless, are more concerned about being reelected than actually doing anything. Same goes for the right. I guess it goes to show that no matter how many speeches BO makes lambasting congress for being a bunch of pussy pos's, for the most part, they could care less.

if things are going so well, why don't we curtail spending on the rest of the stim. money and do away with all the stuff that's bee appropriated over the next few years? why are we now robbing from out grandkids? why do we keep spending money we don't have?
Worst case, the spineless twats on the right will gain some seats and continue to ensure nothing gets done for the next two years as well. Your last points I cant really disagree with. I can only say the "need" is hidden in the various economic health stats that come out each quarter and economists far more knowledgeable than you or I are making those calls. It seems as though the executive is being cautious in its spending, so what you ask for just might happen.
