    Should the stimulus been bigger?  Yes.

    Should it have been repeated?  Yes.

    Did the GOP use it to defeat Democrats in 2010?  Yes

    (Those big spending Democrats.)

    Did we reward them for a good start?  Well no, we sat on our hands in 2010 and are still paying.

    Look I'm not completely happy with the no public option and yes the stimulus should have been repeated.

    But the stimulus was a success as far as it went.  Per ca pita tax cuts and payroll tax cuts were the fastest way to get money out there, except checks would have been better politically.

    In 2008 the Democrats only had a limited amount of time to make a difference and this was a good thing.

    The highest form of spiritual practice is self observation with compassion.
