Beat 360° 5/8/08

Hey Bloggers!

Hot off the press... It's time for 'Beat 360°.'

Everyday we post a picture – and you provide the caption. Our staff will get in on the action too.

Tune in every night at 10p ET to see if you are our favorite! Can you Beat 360°?

Here is today’s 'Beat 360°' pic of the day: Vice President Dick Cheney tours the Philadelphia Financial Center, which disburses payments on behalf of federal agencies... Cheney says the economic stimulus checks going out to more than 130 million Americans are "a shot of energy at the right time and in the right way."

Beat 360°

Have fun with it.

Make sure to include your name, city, state (or country) so we can post your comment.

    To put the stimulus for the average American taxpayer into perspective, Cheney compares to the arms-length row of zeros at the end of his last Halliburton check.

    The face value of the "shot of energy" depends on whether I use a 12 or a 20 GAUGE shotgun!

    And the best part about it is that you could almost buy an entire barrel of oil with any one of these checks!

    Cheney illustrates how he determines just who gets a check vs who gets an audit letter.

    Dick Cheney : Yeah, all those checks going out to stimulate the economy. Once those suckers cash that check, we'll tax'em on it and get more back! That's how we pay the bills. HA HA HA.
