The stimulus didn't fail. But it was too small to completely turn around the economy.
It helped like a bandaid helps a deep cut. It stops the bleeding but stitches work better.
And it shouldn't be permanent.
Look at the verbal gymnastics you need to go through to defend this.
A bandaid wouldnt really help a deep cut. It needs stiches. And putting a band aid on would hurt because the stiches ot needs are being ignored.
Obama and his team of advisors looked at the problem and came up with the stimulus. They got the solution they wanted and it failed to do wha tthey thought it would. I cannot get a better definition of failed. Obama is trying to rewrite history to claim that all his failings are the cause of Republican obstruction, but here is another example of Obama getting what he wants and his policies fail!
