93. I can't but wonder...
I've read this meme that Obama "inherited a horrible situation..." That's unmistakably true. However, the next statement where you say: "changing the momentum of a failed greedy economic system..." Please tell me where Obama has even tried to change momentum of anything. Here's what I see:

1) The same people who caused the problem (Geithner and the gang) are the ones Obama tapped to be his "economic team.'

2) Tens of billions to Afghanistan, how much to rebuild our infrastructure and put people to work? Some, but not nearly enough.

3) Literally trillions to banks (no, not TARP), none of which they have repaid. (Before anyone gets their panties in an uproar, here is what I mean: The Federal Reserve is lending the "big banks" trillions INTEREST FREE at the discount window which they are trading in their proprietary accounts and getting rich OFF OUR MONEY. Where is Obama exposing this and speaking out against it?

4) Unemployment benefits running out (the 99-ers). Not enough money here...gotta be "deficit neutral" gotta be "paid for." That's fine, but where is the "deficit neutral" and "paid for" talk about vomiting, puking money for Afghanistan?

4) I won't mention that gross violations of civil liberties he's continuing and exacerbating and making worse than under Bush because this is an economic discussion.

Really, please...someone...ANYONE show us where he's even trying to "change[] the momentum..."
