    "to the person"

    example: the reason you are making that argument is that you are ignorant or dishonest

    note this attempts to discredit the argument by asserting a weakness in the person making the argument.

    what's not ad hominem is to address the argument for example by writing: the argument you make is usually employed by the tea-baggers.

    in this case, one is directing the implication at the argument.

    The stimulus, which certainly contained funds that went to poor people as well as to green energy development and infrastructure projects is kind of weird to describe the way you did.
