ROVEBOT ATTACK:

Red State Stimulus: Why Obama should make New Orleans Exhibit A in his argument for economic recovery. (Howard Fineman, Feb 10, 2009, Newsweek)

[I]f President Obama wants a vivid place in which to dramatize American economic plight as he sells his recovery package, he should come here, to this still-struggling city, and to the Lower Ninth. The president is on the road, visiting hard-hit towns in traditionally Red States. It's a dramatic way to sell his plan—and to remind congressional Republicans that they oppose him at their peril. Well, Louisiana is such a Red state, where Obama had hoped to win last year.

And even though New Orleans is a special case, it is a case that must not be forgotten.


Which would do two things: (1) scare the bejeebies out of people as he threatened to turn America into New Orleans; and (2) give Bobby Jindal, one of the most appealing Republicans, a chance to hammer him.
