More $600 Earrings?

Merry Christmas?

Does anyone else remember the words of Michelle Obama?

“Barack’s approach is that the short-term quick fix kinda stuff sounds good,” she continued. “And it may even feel good that first month when you get that check. And then you go out and you buy a pair of earrings,” she joked.

Her comment was in response to the “stimulus” checks of last spring. The future First Lady of the United States felt that the budget-busting checks were kinda,… puny, maybe?

Now, word is filtering out that one of Santa Obama’s elves is already hard at work, preparing to further raid the Treasury with a new stimulus package.

House of Representatives speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday raised the prospect of a “lame duck” session of the old US Congress to pass a stimulus package to revive the crisis-hit US economy. source

It seems to me that a new stimulus package, just might, possibly, maybe, sorta-kinda, might be considered an extension of the failed policies of the Bush administration.
