What the hell is going on? Wouldn't you expect a LEADER to assure the country?




WASHINGTON, Sept 16 (Reuters) - U.S. President George W. Bush will no longer make a statement to reporters on Tuesday after meeting with his Working Group on Financial Markets as previously scheduled, the White House said.

"We decided it would be best to limit public comment about markets today, and so there will not be press coverage of the president's Working Group meeting this afternoon," White House spokesman Tony Fratto said amid seesawing stock indicies. "The president looks forward to the briefing by the Working Group."

The meeting was to include Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson and Securities and Exchange Commission Christopher Cox. (Reporting by Jeremy Pelofsky, editing by Dan Grebler)

Maybe the Repugs will finally see that you need a President that is as equally qualified on domestic issues.

He was in Oklahoma a couple of days ago at Tinker Air Force Base in MidwestCity, Oklahoma. Said he was "monitoring the progress of the storm" (Ike).

Translation: "Hiding."

Is it to farfetched to believe he is drinkin' again? I'm just sayin'

Ha..drinking..beat me to the punch. In all seriousness why would he have any intention of making a public statement ? Seriously, what's he going to say - "The Economy is strong, everything's fine, go shopping and relax" ? If he says we're in trouble that's it -might as well say "run and get your money as fast as you can and by the way, my policies during the last 8 years brought us here" .

Saying "it'll all work out" or something along that line is risky - if it doesn't he's screwed. Best to not say anything.

Sorry, but when you are the CEO of a company and you post bad numbers you go out to the media and take the hit. This is no different if you are the President. He should let the people he recognizes the situation, he has (these) groups working on a solution and assure the public we will get through this. It is utterly shocking that he has not made a press release.

Sorry to start the jokes rolling. It's just hard not to when shrub comes up. Seriously, he was in Galveston covering up the other disaster in the making though.

I heard he and Laura were looking for a new house in Dallas. This man is a beady eyed coward! How can he NOT come out to reassure his countrymen? In my opinion, this is one of the worse mistakes he has made in his 8yrs in office.

Well that was a lot of useless posts and one liners. It almost got outta hand lol

I agree with what maudeeb was saying partially but more fully agree with AtlantaInsider1. It's sad when the way a POTUS should handle a situation like the unfolding of a burning economy is easily compared to the way a CEO of a company should deal with his business. I hate the realistic thought that running a company and the United States is so similar now-a-days. I'm sure McCain will do just as "good" as any other one of the CEO's of the States. And Obama will be...simply dreadful

Experts said 9/11 was an attack on our economy. How much has been spent on the War on Terrorism? To what degree is the price of oil causing economic instability? How does a wise leader deal with this kind of economic attack? How long can the US operate with such a huge national debt and still pay it's finance charges to the Federal Reserve? How long can the developing nations survive the high interest rates of IMF? Why did Putin nationalize Russia oil companies? Should we be weary of Chevron and Luk Oil gasoline? What happened to all that Iraqi oil the so-called "It's About Oil" war was going to get "siphoned" to the US for free? Why are we still using oil to run cars, trucks, and produce electricity? Why can't we get off this archaic energy grid and start tapping into Tesla's free energy? (Who sabatoged his career, besides Westinghouse? All the oil barons?) Or at least tap into nuclear energy? Why hasn't a nuclear power plant been built in the US since 1977? Is it the Democrats and environmentalists who are preventing the US to be energy self-sufficient? Haven't both sides of the political arena been negligent in protecting the interests of the United States? What's with the out-sourcing of US jobs? Who is deliberately trying to destroy the US economy? Is there an agenda or are all the politicians just mentally retarded? At what point will the illegal aliens bankrupt the US? So many issues and no answers from any of the politicians.

Do you think he will say something intelligent about the economy?

Well, and this may sound crazy, but I have to go out on a limb here and base my thoughts on the past. Given his history of never saying anything intelligent so far on anything...no.
