FLASHBACK: Obama Admitted $787 Billion Stimulus was Utter Failure, “There Were No Shovel Ready Jobs” – Now Takes Credits for Trump’s Record Economy
On President’s Day former President Obama took credit for the historic Trump economy.
Obama tweeted out.
Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history. pic.twitter.com/BmdXrxUAUf

But like many of Obama’s statements this was another complete lie.
Barack Obama knew the $787 billion stimulus was an utter failure.
He said as much in 2010.
Obama told the press this week that there is not such a thing as a shovel ready job.
The Caucus reported:
In the magazine article, Mr. Obama reflects on his presidency, admitting that he let himself look too much like “the same old tax-and-spend Democrat,” realized too late that “there’s no such thing as shovel-ready projects” and perhaps should have “let the Republicans insist on the tax cuts” in the stimulus.
Barack Obama even joked about his trillion dollar flop in June 2011.
Now Obama wants to take credit for Trump’s economy.
What a joke.
