I am like the biggest Obama supporter, but I am wondering why he didn't unveil his stimulus in a grandiose way. I mean this is supposed to be the package that helps American recover right? So why let Republicans get ahead of you and define the package? Unless it was pretty shameful, and you just hope in sneaked by.
