Stimulee, stimula, stimulee, stimula-haha-ha

So what do I think?

I'm a historian by training. I look back to FDR and the nightmare he inherited from his predecessor. What did FDR do? He tried all kinds of things. Some worked, some didn't. He scrapped what didn't and tried something else.

Will President Obama's plan work? Hell if I know. Do I support him against personal interest? Yes, given that we as a couple (not me mind you) are the dreaded "rich" (barely) who will see their mortage interest deduction cut, etc. But what we know is that a decade of Republican Hooverism has wrecked this train, that the tax cut mantra doesn't work and can't ever work.

I'm willing to try anything...
