Obama Turns To Hope As Economic Anxiety Skyrockets
The Bulletin ^ | MONDAY, MARCH 09, 2009 | JOE MURRAY

Posted on 03/09/2009 6:17:13 PM PDT by curth

Associated Press headlined that his economic recovery plan is “sowing some unease,” and The New York Times has reported he could not assure Americans the economy would grow again by the end of the year.

But as the economy, coupled with economic policies of increased government intervention and spending, threatens to unhinge a presidency that is no more than three months old, Obama has returned to a message of hope at a time to ease fears of his leadership.

“I knew that solving this crisis would not be easy, nor would it happen overnight,” Mr. Obama said during his weekly radio address.

“And we will continue to face difficult days in the months ahead. But I also believe that we will get through this — that if we act swiftly and boldly and responsibly, the United States of America will emerge stronger and more prosperous than it was before.”

With General Motors releasing a report revealing “substantial doubt” in the automaker’s future and the government announcing 651,000 jobs were lost in February, national anxiety has heightened, and talks of an economic depression are becoming more prominent.

According to the Rasmussen Investor’s Index, confidence in the economy has fallen to an all time low as investors are stymied by future predictions of economic gloom. Seventy-five percent of investors responded the economy is getting worse; a twelve point jump since Mr. Obama’s inauguration.

“My administration is committed to doing all that’s necessary to address this crisis and lead us to a better day,” Mr. Obama said in his address.

“That’s why we’re moving forward with an economic agenda that will jump-start job creation, restart lending, relieve responsible homeowners, and address the long-term economic challenges of our time: the cost of health care, our dependence on oil, and the state of our schools.”

I truly hate the media more. They pulled off a completely managed election (with the exception of sarah palin as VP choice, whom they immediately devoted great resources to trying to destroy), getting their choice for gop candidate, and their choice for dnc and election winner.

I watched Juan Williams try to defend this guy (Obambi) on O’Reilly tonight. What a waste of time! BO agreed with him and the young lady demonstrated she had more sense than both of them. Kathleen (?) Help with the name.

The Obama Administration has spent the next 2 generations into oblivion. The taxes and inflation that are forth coming will rob those that are alive today of almost everything. This man has not once considered that medicare & social security would break the bank without all this god awful spending. The rich will take what they have left and leave the country. The elderly that voted for change are getting far more than they bargained for,and with plenty more to come. Damn..i could go on. But i fear it may be to late to stop all this insanity ? I pray its not. Tea Party..here i come.

and those 52% still have their 0bama stickers plastered on their vehicles. Each time I see a car with a 0 sticker on it I day dream of taking a baseball bat to the vehicle ( I have lost over 50% of my portfolio since NOV 5th.)

Axlerod, the head of the DimocRAT party is still trying to coax Obama, now in a fetal position, out from under his bed where he has been heard sobbing uncontrollably about being too tired and wants a vacation or else he’ll throw Axle’s teleprompter out the window.

yep and that vehicle driver is probably one that thought ‘they’ would have had that 50% of your portfolio by now. Let’s hope they’re getting really frantic by now.

My take on “change” from the Rolling Stones “Sympathy for the devil”, the same devil (lucifer) who Obama’s mentor Saul Alinsky dedicated his book “Rules for Radicals” to. Obama, who was trained in the Alinsky Industrial Areas Foundation and who taught the Alinsky method to other Radicals as his community orginizer job.

...He came down to St Petersburg (Russia for any liberals reading this) and he saw it was time for a CHANGE. He killed the Czar and his ministers....

A song that glorifies the communist revolution in Russia, calls it “CHANGE” and, with no regrets, says it is the devil’s work.

The Zer0’s cousin, Odinga is a Kenyan, schooled in Marxist E Germany and ran for the presidency of Kenya as a socialist. His campaign slogan was “change”. Obama also took a senate-paid trip to Kenya to campaign for this brutal killer. Figures.
