Stimulus for Me but not for Thee at Canada Free Press

Timothy Birdnow

So, Barack Hussein Obama (peace be upon him) has taken it upon himself to end the Iraq war, bring the troops home, and fulfill his promise to the moonbat antiwar Left (who do not seem to have much of a problem with Hussein's own wars, since they do not involve our national interest and weren't started by a Republican). Well, dandy. And yet, Our Exalted Leader and Copious Parasite of the Vociferi also asks for a bunch of money to stimulate the economy. WEll; why is he ending the Iraq war? Seems a major opertion like Iraq was an enormous example of Keynesian stimulus, as I argue in my latest at Canada Free Press.

If Obama really believed that spending equates with economic activity, he should welcome our occupation of Iraq as a boon to economic growth. Why end a $140 billion a year industry? Why ask Congress for $400 Billion to spend on teachers and civil servants and then shut down Iraq? If spending is the way out of poverty then we should be surging in Iraq, not withdrawing.
