Not Going To Achieve Anything

The point is that what's been on the table so far isn't going to actually achieve results, if by results we mean "lowering unemployment by Nov. 2012" instead of "passing some crap through Congress that at best won't do much." Maybe the Big Plan should be presented to voters, maybe not. I actually wasn't making a messaging argument, though I do tend to think if you aren't going to have any results then messaging is all you have left. My operating premise is that the agenda of Prime Minister Obama and his economic advisers, when enacted, won't do enough, so he needs some new advisers and he needs some new plans. President Obama will have trouble getting any plan through Congress, but my point is that even Prime Minister Obama isn't going to do enough.
