WaPo: Republicans "Smear" the Stimulus

Michael Shear reports:
Biden's claim is absurd. When Americans look around, they see unemployment rising far beyond the administration's projections and no recovery in sight. There is a reason the public has soured on the stimulus, and it ain't because Republicans suddenly figured out how to deliver a message. The stimulus has not done what was promised -- not even close. I don't know how Biden will be able to deliver that line with a straight face. As for Shear, if he really believes that the Republican party is smearing the stimulus, I suggest he read this piece in a little paper called the Washington Post: "Power of Stimulus Slow to Take Hold, Rising Joblessness Blunts President's Plan for Recovery." That's from last week.
