THE FUNNIEST THING ABOUT OBAMA'S OP-ED is that the WaPo felt it necessary to include a line at the end that says "The writer is president of the United States." Yes, I know it's standard practice for POTUS op-eds, but it's almost as unnecessary as running an op-ed by Osama bin Laden and having a line at the end that says "The writer is the head of Al Qaeda."

Anyhow, the op-ed itself is a set of White House talking points on the stimulus. Not surprisingly, it carefully evades the issue of whether the programs in the stimulus package are actually rapid spending measures that may counteract the recession, or just regular spending measures that are being rushed through at a moment of opportunity.
