Was Obama stimulus plan good for America?

The media is hailing that "Obama won and the republicans did not support him."

Who is asking, "Did America win?"

Is that not the purpose of the media? Is it not the purpose of the media to watch out for government so it does not control the people. The media is supposed to be the watch dog for the people.

That no longer is the case. The media has collapsed. Obama has said that the recession will get worse before it gets better. Um, is no media analyst going to analyze this. What does Obama mean by this?

I'll tell you. Obama knows that increased spending will not help the economy. What it will help is the democratic party, the same way it helped the democratic party when FDR was president.

Of course now we know that the New Deal prolonged the depression more so than it ever benefited it. It prolonged the depression so democrats could stay in power longer.

So, where is the media to tell us that? Where is the media to tell us the truth, that tax and spend policies have historically prolonged recessions and depressions.

The media is dead. Perhaps 2008 was the year the media died. They never questioned Obama. Nobody knows what he even stands for because the media never even put Obama on the spot

The media never asks: Did America win by this Obama economic stimulus plan? Or does Obama and the democrats?

Now, to be fair, I don't know the answer. I bet most of the Congressmen and Senators who signs the bill dont' either, as I doubt most of them had the time to even read the 1,000 page bill.
