I agree with you on that but the third party system is bs when its just repubs afraid to run on their own ticket.

He just said " Our problems are imminently solvable."

Coming from him, I'll use that as evidence that we are screwed.

I haven't stopped giggling since he said good decisions . . . quadruple A . . . common sense . . . compromise . . .
. . . if Obama was selling used cars, it'd be KD and weenies for supper on a lot of nights.

Watching this live is disgusting. He makes no sense, just uses buzzwords. He is trying to recapture the charisma he had during his campaign, but the stuttering just makes it fall short.

It's very useful that they have the stock market indicators refreshing right on the screen during the speech. You can see how fast the markets are falling as he talks.

Be Well.

I predicted the 400pt drop this morning about 8am. Knew it was coming. Tomorrow will probably be a small gain, maybe 40 - 60pts. Then the free-fall will continue. Won't get back on track until we hit about 9500.

You know, compromise something we havent seen from the right.. Obama on the other had has given in time after time.. Now lets look at our previous admin, Bush was always "You are either with us or against us!" and no compromise again..

Its odd you skip over that so quickly.

He is blaming again. Very dangerous to blame others. Or smart in his case. Seems to me he'd love to have more control Hugo Chavez style.

And perhaps he should stop drawing a line in the sand and take his own advice. Stupid politician.

Listening to Obama speak, it sounds to me that he is laying the groundwork for QE3. All I am hearing is we need to spend more money to create jobs...

Nonsense to me. What congress, presidents, the media and people all tend to forget.... The money comes from us, they don't make money, they take money.

Spending tax money to "spur the economy" is equal to saying. "You don't know how to spend your money to fix your situation."

As he started talking the Dow dipped under 11000.
