Outrage of the Day

Your stimulus dollars at work:

The Labor Department paid out hundreds of thousands of dollars in federal stimulus funds to a public relations firm to run more than 100 commercials touting the Obama administration’s “green training” job efforts on two MSNBC cable shows, records show.
The commercials ran on MSNBC on shows hosted by Rachel Maddow and Keith Olbermann in 2009, but the contract didn’t report any jobs created, according to records reviewed recently by The Washington Times.
Spending reports under the federal Recovery Act show $495,000 paid to McNeely Pigott & Fox Public Relations LLC, which the Labor Department hired to raise awareness “among employers and influencers about the [Job Corps] program’s existing and new training initiatives in high growth and environmentally friendly career areas” as well as spreading the word to prospective Job Corps enrollees.

    Remember at first they were making every road project that got federal money to put up a sign about the stimulus for passing motorists.

    Obama is smoke and mirrors, appearing to be doing something is more important than results. Meanwhile the unseen hand of his regulators strangle the economy.

    The latest polls from the Great Lakes region tend to make me believe the country sees through him, though.

    What he’s been doing is straight out of the Leftist Playbook.

    Maddow and Olberman. Isn’t this preaching to a converted audience.
