Even Liberals Are Making Fun of the Recovery Summer

Even liberals are now making fun of the $862 billion in stimulus spending. The link below is to a contest being conducted by the left wing Huffngton Post. They “asked HuffPost readers to come up with a more appropriate name for the last few months, which the Obama administration rather hopefully dubbed ‘The Recovery Summer.'” They did not pick the best choice which was Bummer Summer.
Vice President Joe Biden first spoke of a Recovery Summer last April and said the stimulus would spur the economy by adding half-million jobs every month. The reality is that initial unemployment claims jumped a half-million last week, the worst since last November. The President says unemployment is increasing because the Congress will not pass his jobs bill for small business. Someone needs to tell Obama that Democrats have controlled the Congress since 2007.
