Yeah, I'm gonna need more than a spoonful of sugar

In an article about how Barack Obama has been good so far for the D.C. economy (it's titled "A one-man stimulus?"), I found the following, which I'm sure you'll all just love:

Stephen Fuller, director of the George Mason University Center for Regional Analysis, said that sectors such as hospitality are small fry compared to government itself, which accounts for some 33 percent of the D.C. area economy.

Fortunately, he noted, Obama has got that angle covered, too.

“Having a new administration — and certainly one that will bolster the role of the federal government in the economy — couldn’t have come at a better time,” he said. “It’s pretty good medicine.”
Yeah, and when they start rolling out the Five Year Plans, well, that'll be just peachy.

I'm guessing Mr. Fuller isn't exactly a conservative.
