Stimulus Debate: Which Side Makes Sense or is Full of BS?
If you have some time, 9 minutes or so, check out this compilation of arguments for and against the Obama stimulus plan. You'll notice an amazing thing: Republicans are advancing misinformation and are just plain wrong about the facts. I say amazing because as obviously wrong as they might appear, juxtaposing their comments with supporters of the stimulus, they are winning the argument in the eyes of the public. They're still representing a minority of dissent, but more and more people are turning against the plan.
I put these clips together so I wouldn't have to write 20 separate blog entries.
