And Now a Message From Our President...

Just a few highlights from Barack's first prime time press conference, in case you missed it:

"My bottom line is to make sure that we are saving or creating 4 million jobs, we are making sure that the financial system is working again, that homeowners are getting some relief."

"it's a little hard for me to take criticism from folks about this recovery package after they've presided over a doubling of the national debt."

"It is absolutely true that we cannot depend on government alone to create jobs or economic growth. That is and must be the role of the private sector...But at this particular moment, with the private sector so weakened by this recession, the federal government is the only entity left with the resources to jolt our economy back to life."

This is not your "run-of-the-mill recession!"
