VOICE: The Glenn Beck program presents more truth behind America's March to Socialism.
GLENN: Today, number one in a new series on the March to Socialism.
VOICE: New microscope focus investigative watch, lots of googling, Glenn Beck's eye on stimulus 2009.
GLENN: That's so 2009 sounding, too, isn't it? Eye on the stimulus. Where exactly is your stimulus going? The Obama administration likes to, you know, throw out this claim creating and saving jobs. Hmmm. How are we counting the jobs he saved? Let's not get into that. Otherwise we have to go down the Joe Biden road which, where he tells us it's very complex. Way over his pay grade. They've actually been trying to quantify the amazing benefits of the stimulus package lately. Now they are claiming that they will create or save 600,000 jobs in the next 100 days. Wow. That is hmmm. On their list of the 100 projects that they have done in the last 100 days, because we should just I mean, let's look. The next 100 days, they are going to be so fantastic. What about the last 100 days? Well, you have to dig real deep to find a major error there. You have to take out that microscope and search laser pinpoint focus, flipping through endless pages until you get to project number 1. They say using $27 million of recovery act funding, a public housing development in Washington D.C., the Regency house has undergone a green retrofit. As part of this upgrade the building installed solar panels, the green roof, a rainwater collection system, an energy efficient lighting system. This is I think I may be having an aneurysm. This is what's going to save our country. The water conserving toilets. Just a side note, your Honor. May I approach the bench for just a second? The water conservation toilets don't work! Now, maybe it's just that I'm a large man, but you end up flushing like 400 times! They don't work! I'm sorry. The shower heads, the faucets, everything else, the greening of this building will allow Regency House to save money and energy costs while lessening the impact on the environment. I'd kill a tree right now if I had one near me. The only problem is you can go to the Regency House and check out the progress. Now, I know the White House doesn't expect anyone in the press to actually do it, but somehow or another the skies have opened up and Jack Tapper has, John Jake Tapper has fallen from the sky. I don't care. I love him. You call him anything you want. He's the greatest. He's fallen from the sky. Somehow or another he's like an alien life form in the press corps, asking actual questions. This is what he did. But, well, actually before we get to that, I just want to remind you what they're bragging about here. If they actually did this, okay, you get a new system for collecting rain. If they actually did this, get grass on your roof, new shower heads and faucets. This is what they had to pass immediately or we'll be eating each other. It will be cannibalism within two weeks. Here's what Jake Tapper found. Claims aren't even true. What they found that was only two of the seven promised projects had anything to do with the stimulus package at all. The others had already been done before the stimulus bill had even been introduced in congress. So instead of $27 million in spending, the actual total was, well, it was close. $59,000. $27 million is the amount supposed to be spent on the entire D.C. housing authority, not just this one crappy building with grass on the roof. What was Robert Gibbs' response? Well, he's such a wordsmith. He had to admit that, okay, the number one project on the list of accomplishments was almost total and complete bullcrap. He said, quote, yeah, the mistake on that one... it just took a series of different projects in a cut and paste kind of fashion and put it into one. Oh! Well, that's all that well, if this is number one on their list of 100 accomplishments, let me just say this segment, cottage industry. We're going to be able to do this segment for a very, very long time.
