I dont know if the Feb unemploment rates are in for the US , but in Canada we added 80,000 to the unemployment rolls, we are 1/10 the pop of the US so it may be safe to assume a number close we be forthcoming

If the US no is avail , my bad

Would it be totally plausible to think that Barry was told to create the panic atmosphere so the bill would pass. He was campaigning for the bill for pete's sake.


Well, thoses were my thoughts, but remember Bill told him to knock it off.

So...if the economic crisis is "not as bad as we think," does that mean the porkulus bill will be rescinded immediately and that we'll get back all the money we gave to Citi, AIG, and the other financial institutions we've bailed out thus far?

I'll be waiting for the money to start rolling in to the US' coffers. Should be along any day now.


I was thinking about that this morning.

Yesterday he was very busy and the news also he appeared about 4 times in the news giving speeches.

Yea, odd isn't it?

There is no way Obama is running this show, no way.

I find kind of particular that he is so much in the news media at least ever day, before I used to laugh at the people complaining about it, but now I see what they coming from. Now even I am kind of worry why he is getting so much media attention or why he is in the media spot all the time.

I think he is still campaigning. I just saw him in a commercial for renewamerica . org.


We are told to worry one week and that we worry to much the next. I see the reason we have to worry, he has not shown me a reason not to. His word isn't that good with me yet to take him on it.

At this point, when I hear Obama speak, I hear the teacher from Charlie Brown: Whah Whah Whah, uhh, Whah, Whah, uhhh Whah.

Amazing how in 3 weeks we have gone from crisis to no crisis. Wonder if Obama can turn water into wine too?

He may know something we don't.

Marg, you are 100% correct! How can anyone forget Obama saying that the bailout bill had to be passed immediately or else we would face CERTAIN CATASTROPHE??

Crisis crisis crisis! Crisis like we've never known!

And then after it was passed, he took a few days to sign it, he waited until a photo-op in Denver.


Now, we are to believe that things aren't so bad?

You hit the nail right on the head! Star for you!

He should have said this from the get-go. We'd be further along in confidence and possibly hinting at recovery.

Thanks Js you know me always keeping track of the rats in the White house, still is kind of interesting how he is put on the spot light all the time.

He was again in the news today, I wonder if a thread should be done to track his speeches and how many times he is on TV a day.

It should be obvious to most fair-minded people that Obama is in, way over his head. He has no clue as to what is going on, what to do about it, and what the public reactions are. His handlers have done a horrible job of giving him advice, and briefing him on issues, in terms a rookie can understand. He has no executive experience, his cabinet and other appointed nominations have been a disaster(e.g.- the numerous tax dodgers, nominees that have quit for other political reasons), and the ex-Clinton hacks are running the show, as if Obama is not even there.
So this latest sea change is par for the course- the economy is horrible, it's not so bad, things will get worse, things are getting better.
Maybe his handlers shuffled the teleprompter remarks, and he's reading them out of order.


Hail to the Chief-Obama the Clueless!

Well he had to make it look as catastrophic as possible to get all those pork laden bills passed.

The thing is, you can not get a nation out of debt by borrowing more, you can only get a president/prime minister another term in office.

4 yrs ago, i read a book "empire of debt" which predicted this financial fiasco.
AIG has already received approx 130 BN in US govt aid ( i eagerly await their next quarterlies) but the present stimulus is only 6 times that amount. how stupid does the govt think the public are?
they really don't tell it as it is. What the banks did is criminal, whether it was with intent or by being reckless, either way in law they are guilty and should be brought before the courts.
PEACE,
RK

Well, interesting how the story changes so fast. I thought I odd that suddenly and magically, Citibank made a profit and now everything is just peachy keen and our economy is "not as bad as we think". Well, my personal economy sure hasn't gotten better! LOL!

I agree with a previous poster, if it isn't as bad and these banks don't need the money, take back the spendulous bill. And another strange one...Pelosi said they need to keep the door open to another stimulous bill, then backtracks, then Nobama suddenly says it's not that bad.


I know one thing, the BS has been baking in the sun for too long and now it's REALLY starting to stink.

I just can't trust anything that Obama spits out for the MMS. At least he finally woke up (or got woke up) and decided to start using positive rhetoric. This guy's inexperience is painful to watch and is going to bury the US.
