By the way, last year, Cantor tried to win funding from the stimulus program for a high-speed rail project in Virginia, noting that this would lead to "economic development and job growth."

Obama has indeed lost the message war, and he and his crew can be slammed for that. But a more serious matter is how Republican officials are poisoning the national discourse with demonstrably false information -- which undermines policymaking and, thus, the potential for economic recovery. The real narrative is not how Obama has bumbled the politics, but how the Republicans are killing the truth.

As long states are cuting their budget spending in order to balance their budgets the stimulus will continue to be vital for the economy as a whole without the stimulus states budget cuts would have an much worse impact on the US economy as a whole than it already has.
