Sen Jim Webb Visits UVA-Wise, Stimulus a 'calculated gamble'
Well Jim, will it work? “I don’t know.”
Well why Jim why?
“Was that the right thing to do?” he asked. Republicans overwhelmingly said no, “but the advisers we had told us, ‘Go back to the Great Depression. The way to fix that better would have been to inject money into the system immediately." Link
Besides Webb's honesty about how this stimulus is a crap shoot he was wishy washy at best on other issues.
Webb fielded several questions from the audience, some dealing with energy issues and others social matters. A questioner asked if he was prepared to stop the destruction of the mountains due to surface coal mining, and Webb said he was prepared to see if environmental laws could be strengthened.
Asked if he thought wind power could supplement coal as an energy producer, the senator said the short answer is “that any valid source of energy should be pursued.”
I don't like answers like I'm prepared to see.....any valid source.....Webb goes out out a limb about the stimulus saying “We all better hope it does work” Hope...Change...I need a drink.
