Substituting activity for productivity

The Great Unifier has decreed that since GW Bush's "economic stimulus" plan wasn't such a great thing, he'll do it again, only harder.

This reminds me of a comparison I heard several months ago on NPR, from Russ Roberts;
"It's like taking a bucket of water from the deep end of a pool and dumping it into the shallow end. Funny thing—the water in the shallow end doesn't get any deeper."
And since Barry's plan is only going to soak the rich, it's all supposedly OK, you see:

"Obama has pledged to keep the tax cuts (Uncle George's, ed.) in place for everyone except those making roughly $250,000 and up. He has also made proposals to cut taxes further for the middle class..."

Stupid is as stupid does, I suppose.

H/T to Tam, for getting the ball rolling.
