    ...so far?

    No transparency; plenty of obfuscation.

    Lying about the pork in the stimulus bill.

    Bipartisanship means "my way or the highway".

    Pelosi is tougher; dumber, too.

    Well, then.

    It is change.

    Sort of.

    I guess.

    What "pork" did he lie about? I felt he was very honest about it.

    Well I think you'll find that both sides take that view, so there's your bipartisanship.

    The lack of transparency?

    He said he'd have EVERY BILL posted online for a minimum of FIVE DAYS before a vote for purposes of PUBLIC REVUE.

    Surely you remember this promise.

    Big Nancy posts it at 11pm the night before an early-morning vote - it's a thousand pages of gobblety-gook IN PDF FORMAT.

    In case you didn't know, PDFs cannot be keyword-searched for content; there is literally no way to review this mess.

    If this is what passes for transparency in your liberal book, well...


    And the pork?

    He said, in his address, that there was "no pork, no earmarks" in the stimulus whatsoever.

    Now I realize you wouldn't recognize a pig if it bit you on the ass, but people who do found the parts they were allowed to examine absolutely loaded with the stuff.

    And you think this guy is the greatest thing since sliced bread/Abraham Lincoln.

    Besides all that, it seems Big Nancy is really running the show:

    "I want this bill passed before I leave for my glorious self-congratulatory trip to see the Pope tomorrow or else!"

    Well, you won't be able to blame it on Republicans, anyway - this is gonna be the biggest tits-up in legislative history.

    And how will this be determined?
    What will be the benchmark?

    Why, common sense, of course:

    Using long, drawn-out processes to put money into circulation to meet an emergency is like mailing a letter to the fire department to tell them your house is on fire.

    To use an analogy that falls closer to hand, if this were a processor*, it would be the i7 Extreme Edition.

    It will create a benchmark.

    Edit-

    *-and if processors were bad things-

    Nah-uh.

    You leave yourself an infinite amount of wiggle-room.
    Pick a metric (or two) and pin the determination to it.
