Your Turn: Stimulus-Created Police

Obama-Columbus-Police-Gradu.jpg

This image was taken this morning in Columbus where Obama attended a police graduation. The recruits were part of a 27 person class that was laid off in January. As noted by the President, the jobs were saved by the recently signed stimulus bill. In a vivid reference, TIME referred to the personnel as “stimulus-created police.”

All I would add is that any photo op this week had to contend with an economy falling further off the cliff.

Your thoughts?

In a thoroughly vivid reference, TIME referred to these personnel as “stimulus-created police.”
