    Obama discusses economy, markets in advisers call

    Obama discusses economy, markets in advisers call | Reuters

    Quote Originally Posted by Massachusetts (Reuters)
    President Barack Obama held a conference call with top economic advisers on Wednesday to discuss newly released grim data that has raised fears the economy is at risk of a new downturn.

    Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and White House advisers Christy Romer and Larry Summers took part in the call with the president, who is vacationing on the Massachusetts island of Martha's Vineyard.

    Government reports on Wednesday showed new single-family home sales slumped to the slowest pace on record in July and orders for costly durable goods were soft, heightening fears about the economy's direction.

    I am confused as to how exactly you came to this conclusion from reading that article. Oh wait. You're blindly partisan!

    He will be criticized no matter what he does. The foremost duty of the Head of State in a democracy is to be the scapegoat for society's collective failures.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Interesting video that is no longer available in the U.S. Markets. For those that continue to blame Bush for the economy looks like a lot of Democrat fingerprints on the economic problems we have today.

    YouTube - Timeline shows Bush, McCain warning Dems of financial and housing crisis; meltdown
