Now He Tells Us… Obama Admits There's No Such Thing as a Shovel Ready Job

Back on March 3, 2009, 14 days after democrats rammed through their record $787 non-Stimulus package, Barack Obama told Americans that those shovels were already hitting the ground.

Well, it’s been a year and a half and we all know that the shovels weren’t hitting anything. The stimulus was a horrible failure.

Even Obama agrees. Obama told the press this week that there is not such a thing as a shovel ready job.
The Caucus reported, via Evan Coyne Maloney:

In the magazine article, Mr. Obama reflects on his presidency, admitting that he let himself look too much like “the same old tax-and-spend Democrat,” realized too late that “there’s no such thing as shovel-ready projects” and perhaps should have “let the Republicans insist on the tax cuts” in the stimulus.

Now he tells us.
