Is this a speech about the economy? It sounds more like a defensive maneuver regarding teaparties tomorrow.

Obama's speech he is giving, sounds more like a scared defensive maneuver to pre-empt the tax parties tomorrow and any possible news coverages. This speech was supposed to be about the economy, but it sounds more to me like a big excuse to explain what he has done for the last 12 weeks. Wth?
And most of it isn't even true!!

  • I think he tries to explain things for the every day person to understand. People say let the banks fail with out fully understanding the consequences of a major bank failing. Like most politician speeches, there were good parts and bad parts.

  • Did he take credit for the good things Bush did (like Biden did when he talked about the economy)??? I heard part of it where he blamed the econ downturn on the housing market, but failed to mention Barney Frank saying Fannie and Freddie were fine. hrmmm Or the part where Republicnas and Dems tried to place restrictions on Fannie and Freddie to avoid this but his Liberal coherts blocked it... Obama is a puppet. Just can't figure out who has their hand up his a$$ today.. Pelosi? Ried? Frank?
