What happened to all the "shovel ready jobs" Obama promised would benefit from the "stimulus package?"?

Did Obama ever realize there is no such thing as a shovel ready job or did it just use that term for political necessity?

He and anyone with an IQ above 70 knew from the start that there was no such thing as a "Shovel Ready Job" . It did make nice sounding phrase to fool the idiots though, and that is all he was interested in doing. Doesn't that speak well for all of the college tramps and thieves. OOPS! I meant to say students.

The same thing that happened to the jobs promised by his predecessors. As politicians, they are in the habit of making promises they can't fulfill. The fault lies with the people who believe the lies of politicians.

Well, if those jobs are anything like the Kansas Department of Transportation, there are about 5 people standing around holding the shovel, while one supervises and drinks coffee.

He already admitted that was just a lie to get him elected and his stimulus bill passed.

There is a big shovel shortage. The companies that make the shovels are having a hard time cutting through all the government red tape.
