Slow Stimulus (clarified)

No, I am not a Republican claiming "Unemployment is still high, therefore the stimulus did not work and Obama is a bum."

What I am being critical of is that more than six million jobs are needed immediately, and Obama and Democrats are patting themselves on their collective back for passing a bill that creates jobs in two years.

When criticised for the ongoing slowness in the economy, they tell people who are still jobless to "be patient" because they are creating some jobs right away and, for reasons which are purely political and self-serving, some jobs two years down the road.
