What problems with the stimulus?

Despite increasing evidence that the stimulus isn't working (either because it can't work or isn't being spent fast enough to work -- take your pick), Obama sez: "There’s nothing that we would have done differently".

Really? Nothing? Not one project in that $787 billion?

I understand he needs to talk a good game, but to pretend that the stimulus was immaculate is more than I can handle.

Wouldn't shift more to tax cuts? Wouldn't make it spend faster? Wouldn't have given it a couple more days to work out a better plan? Wouldn't have had fewer strings attached to state funding? (I could keep going here...)

Who's disconnected from reality now?
