This plan is more than a prescription for short-term spending — it’s a strategy for America’s long-term growth and opportunity in areas such as renewable energy, health care and education. And it’s a strategy that will be implemented with unprecedented transparency and accountability, so Americans know where their tax dollars are going and how they are being spent. (President Barack Obama, Washington Post)
The Washington Post just this morning published an editorial, written by President Obama, defending the stimulus package. Reading it, I thought smacked of everything he said in his weekly address a week or two ago… and was sort of like a stump speech, more than anything else.Â Everything Obama wrote was valid, of course, but didn’t really convince me, as a reader, why this stimulus package is going to work.Â It’s weak point, in my opinion, was that the editorial did not address the concerns tied to the stimulus package. At the same, I do think it is a good idea that he is using the media in such a manner to reach those who don’t watch his weekly addresses (as in, everyone else who is not Nina!).
