    I'm amazed that Obama has requested earmarks in the 1 million dollar range...

    Which is amazing as it is less than .06% of the earmarks Republicans needed to pass a economic rescue package...

    I simply can not believe Obama would request so little when the Republican congress and senate and whitehouse was pushing billion dollar bridges to no where and wooden arrows for kids...

    Why the hell didn't he get more for his state? I'm Amazed...

    Here is the Adler planetarium response.. it was a little more than a projector and benefitted thousands of Chicago School Children..they never received the money and he did not sponsor this alone.. he did it in conjunction with other illinois congressmen and women..
