    Did you not read the entire article. Here is a sample.

    "Jake Wiens, an investigator with the non-profit Project on Government Oversight, says it's too soon to draw meaningful conclusions about whether the type of aid in the stimulus favors Obama's constituents.

    But, he says, "it will be important to pay close attention as the data come in to ensure that political favoritism plays no role."

    The imbalance didn't start with the stimulus. From 2005 through 2007, the counties that later voted for Obama collected about 50% more government aid than those that supported McCain, according to spending reports from the U.S. Census Bureau. USA TODAY's review did not include Alaska, which does not report its election results by county."

    This has come up before in other threads. Numbers and that are percieved as facts often lack relevance or correlation. It is quite clear in the article that it is too early to tell if there is actually favoratism. It is more likely pre-existing policy that dictates the flow of funds.

    It makes complete sence. the lowlife poor are the ones who vote Dem every time and it's no coincedence that the poor get the majority of aide. We work our asses off so they don't have to.

    What has me confused (not really, just rhetorically) is why they would declare that there are the beginnings of economic recovery as a result of the stimulus yet also claim we "misread" it. Talk of a 2nd stimulus is on the table.
    Biden specifically said obama isn't not ruling that option out.

    Because it is a perfect example that they have no clue what they are doing or it's that it is exactly what they wan't. Scare the crap out of the public to make them believe we need a 800 Bil stimulus that really has no stimulus(just 800 bil in liberal paybacks) then say we need more money to stimulate the economy because the first was not enough. The question is would the second actually address the real problem or just become another liberal spending bill that increases government more and deepens the debt. I seriosly doubt that a second will be approved.

    Excellent points AZMan but I was more looking for an answer from someone who supports this garbage.
