Who are you quoting with the """save us""" stuff? You're not quoting me.
Sure the stimulus has some questionable results, it didn't boost the economy like it could have. It also could have been much, much bigger and we wouldn't be flirting with double-dip recessions the past 15 months.
But that's all immaterial. The claim was made by Iowanian that Obama was a total failure.
Of course, he didn't define what he meant, as was convenient for him, so we can just assume he meant that he accomplished nothing remotely positive ecnomically during the past four years.
I think you can I can both agree that's hyperbole, and stupid.
