Searching for the 'face' of the stimulus

Editor's Note: All this week, we've been shining a spotlight on the $862 billion economic stimulus plan and asking, "has the money been well spent?" In the final part of The Stimulus Project, our Gerri Willis set out to find the "face" of the stimulus.

    I do not know how long I will be watching this program. You always seem to have more anti-Obama rhetoric than when George Bush was president.

    No president has taken over this office with so many problems on his plate. Yet you want miracles after one year,

    In addition to that you are providing The Tea Party Express with a platform. Have you seen the disrespectful signs bordering on racism this group has been displaying?

    Regardless of what this president does, the leader of the party (Rush Limbaugh) wants him to fail and so are his blind followers who do not have a clue of what the real issue is here. The world is watching

    The face of Stimulus...look at the Beast you serve and uses you to serve their self serving agendas..

    Toyota...quality control words like equality that are not yet achieved. Car companies use robots to make millions of parts and a flaw gets by throwing millions upon millions of flawed parts to be placed within each car/truck. You peoples are not too bright and deserving of that which you receive until you all wake up to know and understand the system you each are a part of.

    Government, Industry, Finance,Academic, Military, Media,Religion(spirituality+ethics) and the Peoples.What we grow and that which we cull .Each a gene to the forming genome of humanity itself. Over two billion genes about to be culled soon.

    I tie words to a sentence and cast it out much like fly fishing for trout and salmon. Sometimes I get a bite but do you not think I can place the words to ensure they do not go past the moderator.....not too bright..United States with a mere three hundred million with over two billion to safe are you all out there.

    Well since we have more money to spend, I'll hold my horse until I see where the other 3/4s of the funds are placed.

    You show know the tax cuts we all got from President Bush was not just for the rich or making over $250,000, those tax cuts kept unemployment at 4.9% until 2008.

    Please report WHO requested the stimulus dollars...this is GRANT someone in each state that had to apply for the funds. Then report WHO evaluated and selected the grants...were the funds first given to the STATE, and then the STATE selected the grantees? WHO is the Gov. of the state: Rep. or Dem? What do THEY think of the money THEIR state has received and how it is being used? WHO are their STATE representatives? Rep. or Democrate? What do THEY think of the money their constitutants have received?
