Haven't any of you watched a Disney movie? All you have to do is believe and sing catchy tunes with woodland creatures to make everything turn out just fine...

Yes he did take the stage. He said he's stabilized housing market and financial market and needs to do more in job market.

Lies, lies and more lies. I bet we are going to hear the same lies for the next three and a half years.

I'll tell you what. If the cap and trade and socialized health care bills and the economy breaks downthere won't be a place Obama can hide from the people .

I'm a conservative, and I had NO use for GWB.......so it's not as simple as you believe. Obama is doing most everything wrong concerning how to get an economy up and running again. That's my issue with him.

tony, I would venture that this is not a shocker to many that post on this forum. We tend to go deeper than the MSM fluff in our discussions.

The effects of the stimulus even in principle should just be barely noticeable right now.

Also, nobody has suggested that the stimulus was going to return the economy to full employment, rather to limit the damage.
