Obama's first press conference

Wow - wasn't that just thrilling? To watch a President speak so intelligently, to take questions from the press-corps that were not pre-screened and answer them all, even the tough ones? And I'm honked off enough for all of us, but I I was glad to see him get just a little peeved with the Republicans. Not enough tax cuts? Doesn't create enough jobs? Do they think we've been in a coma the last 8 years, and have no idea how we got to this point? Not to mention the $350 billion-with-a-b that they gave, sans conditions, to their banking buddies as a little farewell kiss-off.

Whatever happens with this "bailout"bill, the press conference was a rousing success, and I think we have a president who can begin to restore our image to the rest of the world. Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, and speak in whole sentences!

About that stimulus bill...

I was so sad to read that they had to give in to Republican demands for tax cuts and give up money for health and education in the stimulus bill.

Crazy, isn't it? What good are tax cuts if you're unemployed? They just can't seem to get out of the "reverse Robin Hood" mentality.

I about barfed,hopefully I will only have to put up with BO for 4 more years and the dem majority for 2.
Good thing is, pretty soon the government will be so broke that there will be NO more handouts of any kind and you will have to work to achieve something. Sad part of this shortsided spending is there is going to be alot of elderly that thought there would be SS & Med there for them....and there will be no money.
