“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Obama went to an Ohio construction site to brag about all the stimulus jobs he's created, and being oblivious to the irony of this, cost the local construction workers a full day's pay for their trouble...

From FoxNews -- President Obama went to the groundbreaking of a road project in Columbus, Ohio, Friday to show that his massive stimulus package is still churning out jobs -- a "good news" story that was anything but for some construction workers who were trying to figure out how to make up for the payday they lost due to the president's visit.

The workers were told not to report to their construction project at a nearby hospital Friday, because the Secret Service was shutting it down for security reasons. They also were told that they would not get paid for the forced day off.

Over a trillion stimulus dollars spent and still unemployment is around 10%, more in some states. Obama's ridiculous, 10minute photo-op/PR stunt cost between $500thousand and $1million to stage. This administration continues to completely ignore the facts and claim that they are putting people back to work, yet the "jobs" are short-lived make-work jobs that will evaporate the second the taxpayer money ends.
