So Dennis has a three-fer going on.
#1: This CIA "torture" investigation is red meat for the commie-libs. It is meant to distract and/or placate them after Obama's attempt at backing away from "single payer" health care.
The more I see of Obama, the more convinced I am that the man has no spine whatsoever, exactly as Dennis suggests. He is certainly not a "leader" in any sense of the term.
#2: Inmates given stimulus money. How the hell does that happen? Why did a bunch of criminals get money and not the rest of us? I want my $250.
#3: Lefties are unhappy that the CIA investigation doesn't go after Bush and Cheney. There are a large number of reasons the investigation can't include the prior administration; one of those reasons is that Obama himself expects to be an ex-President sooner or later, and the last thing he wants is for someone to have a precedent for investigating the things he is doing. (And I am talking about the Bush policies that he has allowed to continue, not the extra-constitutional stuff he's pulled.)

White House: "While the danger of the economy immediately falling into a deep recession has receded, the American economy is still in the midst of a serious economic downturn."
We're in a deep recession already, you asshats. What part of "10% unemployment" do you not get?
Toyota would not be cutting its payroll if we were not in a recession.
Just avoiding the word "recession" does not mean we're not in one.
