The fact that the Obama administration was off to a rocky start should not have been surprising
In early 2009, the new Obama administration brought new people into government and a group that had been out of power for over eight years. We should not have been surprised that they would make mistakes in the early days. Their one achievement was enacting the blank check spending bill that they used to funnel money to Democratic constituencies and into pork programs. They looked at the opportunity as license to pay off themselves and their friends. The label "Stimulus Bill" simply was available cover for the real purpose.
