I actually chuckled when I read this piece:
(note: I edited the above link. The previous link seems to be gone or have changed. So I'm using Ex's link he provided below.)
The gist of the piece is, have faith - the great Obama will fix all and provide for all! It also tells me that he's not listening to the economists.
Love this quote!
"A smidgen of good news and suddenly everything is doing great. A little bit of bad news and ooohh , we're down on the dumps," Obama said. "And I am obviously an object of this constantly varying assessment. I am the object in chief of this varying assessment."
This coming from the president himself, after he worked this country into a frenzy about the imploding economy, and if we don't act NOW and pass the stimulus package we're all doomed!!
This one made me go HUH???
"I don't think things are ever as good as they say, or ever as bad as they say," Obama added. "Things two years ago were not as good as we thought because there were a lot of underlying weaknesses in the economy. They're not as bad as we think they are now."
So it really is all smoke and mirrors?
This one made me laugh out loud!
Vice President Joe Biden opened the meeting by warning state officials that if they misuse money from the stimulus package, they should not expect more help from the federal government for a long time.
Added Obama: "If we see money being misspent, we're going to put a stop to it."
Now Geithner is off to Europe to try and convince them to spend like crazy as well!
Doesn't look like they care for the idea too much. Ha ha!
