The Obama Economic Stimulus or Porkulus signs are typical “Big Government” methods to toot their own horn, so to speak.
Are they a waste of taxpayer money?
You bet, unless you are the sign maker and the guys who install them.
Why does “Big Government” need to publicize its efforts? This is how they roll – more and more government spending until they surround the American economy, and isn’t it grand?
As far as missing President Bush – I don’t. He was an ineffective communicator and has caused much consternation for the RIGHT – much like his father who followed President Reagan. It has taken almost two years to repair the damage to the GOP.

Then Senator Barack Obama on President George W. Bush and the Iraq War
And, Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said the Iraq War was lost. Remember?
President Barack Obama has asked the television networks for fifteen minutes tonight to address the nation about the ending of combat operations in Iraq from The Oval Office and what will he say?
Will he acknowledge his political judgment was incorrect in opposing the Iraq War surge?
Will he thank President George W. Bush for staying the course and to win the war (with the surge) so that Obama could bring the troops home?
Or will the President continue his narrative that Bush should have not started the Iraq War in the first place?
All of the above?
DNC Television Ad: “Big Choices”
Guess the Democratic National Committee forgot the internet has a memory as they pull this morning’s George W. Bush campaign ad.
The Democratic National Committee released an advertisement, posted on the DNC’s “Rapid Response” YouTube Channel, mocking George W. Bush. The ad was laughable, and much derided.
Here is how it appeared in my post earlier today, Extremely Effective DNC Ad:
Alas, there will be a take down notice so enjoy the derision of the Democrats while it lasts.
DNC Television Ad: “Big Choices
The Democratic National Committee (DNC) channels President George W. Bush in their latest television ad.
Democrats again used former President George W. Bush as a foe in their latest TV ad campaign, driving home the point Republicans would restore policies that helped create the economic downturn.
The Democratic National Committee (DNC) released a new cable ad Friday that harped on their campaign message that the November midterm elections will be a choice between Democratic policies that will bring the country out of the recession versus Republican policies that helped created it.
No Republican is used in the ad aside from Bush — who is shown saying “you can fool me but you can’t get fooled again.”
Looks like an excuse to me from a losing political party.
The Dems took down the ad later in the day. Go here to see it before the take down notice.
Day By Day by Chris MuirYes, Chris Halloween is coming up next Saturday, Obama is President and isn’t it scarey?
Speaking about tolerances, did you know today President Obama finished his 24th round of golf since being in the White House. This was accomplished in less than a year.
Does anyone realize before President Bush quit playing golf (because America was at war and he deemed it inappropriate) it took 2 years and 10 months for him to play 24 rounds? This was from CBS White House Correspondent Mark Knoller’s twitter stream – @markknoller.
Wonder if Obama will obtain any tolerance in the matter? You know because of the continuing war in Afghanistan and the 130K troops continuing to be deployed in Iraq.
