Pork chop

When is pork not pork? The president speaks in Elkhart County and brags about how the Recovery Act was passed without any "earmarks or pork-barrel spending," then later tells the audience how much of the $2.4 billion in grants Indiana will get:

At least the audience is consistent--no applause for the opposition to pork barrel, but tons of applause for the pork-by-another-name that will be sent to Indiana.

Money another state gets is pork. Money we get is economic development assitance for a suffering region.

Paraphrasing Rev. Jeremiah Wright, "On November 4, 2008 America's chickens came home to roost."

Funny how Daniels or Souder or any other Indiana republicans are not demanding that this "stimulus" money be refused. Must truly be assistance to a suffering region.
