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.

So...if the economic crisis is "not as bad as we think," does that mean the porkulus bill will be rescinded immediately and that we'll get back all the money we gave to Citi, AIG, and the other financial institutions we've bailed out thus far?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

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.
