The continuing exposure of Porkulus Job Fables goes to San Diego, which used a Barbara Boxer appearance hailing job creation in the area. KUSI-TV reports that they can only find one job created by stimulus dollars in the area. In fact, they expose Boxer’s dishonest representation of NIH grant money for research as “stimulus” funds, and marvel at the poor performance of Boxer in office (via Brian Faughnan):
“Her self-importance will likely be [an issue] in her re-election campaign.”
You think? One can only hope that Californians will be embarrassed by her ignorance of military etiquette and her self-absorption. If nothing else, though, the utter failure of Porkulus to slow joblessless in California and Boxer’s shameless flacking for it should allow the eventual Republican nominee to gain ground in a tough election.
