    No. Despite all of my other objections to how he-- and Congressional Democrats-- are attempting to handle this economy, this is one thing he is doing right. He's doing everything he can to inspire confidence in the economy and the markets.

    Talking about doom and gloom doesn't exactly inspire confidence....

    Yeah, he sounds Reaganesque.
    Full of optimism.
    Hope.
    Yes we can.

    Not.
    I AM DEPLORABLE.

    What doom and gloom? You mean 4.1 million jobs lost in the last 6 months? I think it's a lot better then the Republican-supported candidate who kept saying there was no crisis to begin with.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    The doom and gloom crap he spouted to get the stimulus bill passed.

    Again. What doom and gloom would that be? 4.1 million jobs lost which is a fact? American companies shipping jobs overseas in massive numbers which is a fact? A huge slump in the job market which is a fact? What doom and gloom? You know : saying there will be a Mushroom cloud over an American city if we don't go to war is doom and gloom. Saying that we need to pass a bill because of something that has already happened is not.

    Bush and Cheney ****ed up the economy LONG before Obama was ever a Presidential candidate.

    Cheney is, was, and ALWAYS WILL BE the mouthpiece of big business.

    If anything it was how every president for the past 30 years helped lead us to this mess, It was not one 4-8 year regime that did this mess.

    That being said Bush taxcuts were terrible, he did next to nothing to cut spending. That can be said for lots of other presidents also.
