Krauthammer says that just as predicted the stimulus hasn’t left a trace in the sand except for the ruins of the Solyndra plant:
Well I think a tweet like that (Dan Pfeiffer tweet) would appear out of touch given that the overwhelming sentiment in the country is that this is, and in fact is the weakest recovery since the 2nd World War. The highest chronic unemployment…it’s basically a jobless recovery with millions of Americans leaving – not even looking to get a job because they are so discouraged and the recovery is so weak.
You know it isn’t as if the only alternative was this monstrous stimulus versus nothing. You could have had tax cuts and deregulation. Instead it was a gift to all kinds of democratic constituencies. And as a result, all this money is spent.
FDR at least left behind a Hoover dam. Ike left behind the interstate highway system. This thing as predicted hasn’t left a trace in the sand except the ruins of the Solyndra plant.
