Weren’t we supposed to be post-partisan now?

From a report done by The Mercatus Center at George Mason University:

Democratic districts have received nearly twice as much stimulus money as Republican districts and the cash has been awarded without regard to how badly an area was suffering from job losses, according to a new study.

What, you’re surprised by this?  Surely you didn’t buy into the line that politicians were going to be honest, and act in our best interest, all because Obama was elected? 

Congress spent a bunch of money it didn’t have on ridiculous pork projects, and called it a stimulus bill.  I still remember Al Gore screaming about Bush “He played on our fears!”  Yup, I’d say that’s exactly what our current president did.  We were promised the unemployment rate wouldn’t reach 9% if it passed.  Um, yeah.  How’s that hope and change working?

It’s going to be a long 3 years.
