I was listening to a report on NPR yesterday on Pres. Obama doing a ceremony in OH to commemorate the stimulus package. The reporter suggested that people are so worried about the deficit that attempts to advertise the advantages of the stimulus will also attract attention to government spending, which will remind them of the deficit.
I was in my car at the time and wondered what, exactly, the guy was talking about. Guess it's this.
Such is the really stupid stuff of much of our public discourse.
