    If readers of a self-proclaimed progressive website don't know that the administration has proposed several jobs bills that were seriously watered down by republicans or denied passage entirely -- and that Obama has made those same speeches you long for -- then not much hope exists that general public knows.

    The stimulus bill was the 21st century's version of a WPA project. FDR didn't have a myriad of state laws on labor, contracting, and infrastructure to deal with. If you can actually find a 21st century WPA project proposal, then promote it.

    "..just hope and try to appease the republicans..."

    Shit.
