Guess What ARRP Stands For

Well this is going to be fun. The White House has two websites up now on the American Reinvestment and Recovery Plan (ARRP). You have to love the acronyms they come up with. The links will be at the bottom of this post.

The first one has nothing on it. It’s supposed to track how the government is spending your money after the ARRP is passed. That should be an interesting exercise in obfuscation.

The second is pure public relations. It starts out with the usual scare tactics concerning the current recession and then proceeds to promise the sun, moon and the stars. I give these guys an A+ for marketing and an F for political judgement. Someone needs to tell them that the campaign is over and it’s a new ballgame.

They are setting expectations way too high for a situation that they can’t control. There are just too many variables.¬†Take a look for yourself and let me know what you think.¬†
