Numbers show stimulus nothing but a failure

President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden continue to spout about the turn around of the economy and all the jobs they have created.

This in and of itself is so outrageous that it deserves no further mention. The other outlandish claim is that although we are still in bad shape, it would have been worse had they not taken the actions they did.

I ask progressives and liberals, how bad would it have been? Nobody ever used that as an excuse before, and it does not fly. What a lame excuse for a total failure. The numbers are just not there to define the stimulus as anything but a grandiose failure.
