The President’s New Initiative
Admit it… we’ve all known this announcement was coming:
[Press Secretary] ROBERT GIBBS: Tonight at 9 P.M. Eastern time, President Obama will declare a War on Reality. He will call on all branches of government and volunteer organizations to stand together and fight against reality in all of its forms. …
Q: Turning to the economy, it seems that the trillion-dollar stimulus package passed last year has been a failure. Even using your own White House yardstick of unemployment. Are you contemplating another stimulus?
ROBERT GIBBS: Yes. Of course. The president believes along with his economic team that another round of stimulus spending is crucial.
Q: But isn’t that just throwing good money after bad?
ROBERT GIBBS: No, Wendell, it’s not. As part of the president’s comprehensive War on Reality, our view is that the first stimulus package worked perfectly.
