Stimulus goals have been met. What?

New White House Spokesman Jay Carney made his debut this week and said this: The goals of the "stimulus" plan have been met.

A reporter then asked if that was so, then why was the unemployment rate still at 9% instead of at 7%, the projected level if the "stimulus" worked.

He refused to answer.

Not a good start. But anyone tasked with defending the economic "plan" of President Obama and the Democrats in the Senate faces an impossible task.
