Stimulus Hypocrisy

Feel the "stimulus" yet?

Well, the nation's state governors certainly are. At a meeting with state officials yesterday President Obama told them the Feds will be watching closely as they spend the taxpayer's money.

"If we see money being misspent, we're going to put a stop to it".

"If wasteful spending is found, we will call it out and we will publicize it".

Pretty strong language coming from a man who promised in his campaign for the presidency to veto legislation from Congress containing wasteful earmarks.

Then just this week signed a budget with over 8000 pork barrel earmarked projects in it.

Then is it any wonder Gov. Rick Perry of Texas, Bob Riley of Alabama, Mark Sanford of South Carolina any others are wary about accepting the carrot, eyeing the big stick that hangs menacingly above it.

Wasteful is in the eye of the beholder. Cross the administration on a project they want and they'll hang you from the gallow's pole for all to see.

And then there's the hypocrisy of an administration warning the state governors then on the other hand doling out 990 million dollars to the terrorist organization Hamas with nary a word said about how that money is to be spent.

The dots:

Obama's ties to Tony Rezko.

Rezko's ties to Saddam Hussein's former operatives in Great Britian.

The administration's suspension of the U. S. S. Cole's bomber's trial at Gitmo.

The $990,000,000 in aid to the known terrorist organization Hamas.

We supply, you connect.
