CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- Sen. Barack Obama today met with some of his many economic advisors and made an announcement that he was not going to make an announcement about any new plan to plan plans.
Obama did suggest a bipartisan effort to deal with the financial crisis wreaking havoc on Wall Street, always a good idea for any candidate after the primaries because it sounds good and costs nothing.
But Obama did not present any detailed proposal of his own for how to resolve the monetary situation that has roiled world markets in recent days.

You can’t blame him. They haven’t had the time to load his “plan” into the teleprompter!
And thank God for that!
Jay Leno in his opening monologue tonight on “The Tonight Show” to pointS out an essential presidential campaign unfairness, that Obama has criticized McCain’s economic plan but the Republican can’t respond because “nobody knows what it is yet.”
Yeah Osama, I have an economic rescue plan: Call up Doc Brown go back into time and keep you far FAR away from Fannie Mae.

He can’t present what he ain’t got.........The dog ate my crisis plan.........
Obamas opinion on Russia invading George? Present??
Obamas opinion on AIG rescue loan? Present??
Holding a press conference to announce that he was not going to make an announcement about any new plan to plan plans? Ridiculous.
He’s planning on getting a plan.........
Do you all see ZERO’s press conference today regarding Wall Sreet? This embarrassing “speech” needs to get out to the masses. It was horrible. This could be the leader of the free World. Wake up people!!
Like having a meeting to discuss having a meeting.........
Obama is sometimes able to vote “present” but most of the time he is just AWOL, which, in his case, is probably a good thing.
“Obama needs to consult with his 300 economic advisers before he can bring up a plan. “
That will be interesting........ since 100 or so of his ‘advisors’ caused the whole mortgage meltdown and made off like bandits! /sarcasm
They are scared of this folks! We need to hammer it home and the McCain Campaign needs to be shouting it from the rooftops!
THE ONLY TIME DEMOCRATS WANT BIPARTISANSHIP IS WHEN THEY ARE IN SERIOUS TROUBLE!!
He’s certainly planning on forming a plan, but at present the plan does not include a planned planning session to plan a plan. When the plan does include a planned planning session, he certainly plans to attend.
The One doesn’t need a plan. Not if his election marks the date when the earth and the markets begin to heal.
Worthy of Scrappleface. lol
He needs to plan on getting a clue!......
Boy if it wasn’t in the LA Times I would think this article was satire just from the first sentence.
The Obama Plan........
You still have made a choice"
And Biden hasn't had time to plagiarize any.
He is either waiting to see if his best play is to agree or criticize the admin's plan or his is a total loser. Of course he could be both waiting and a loser /sarcasm
That campaign has successfully, through no doing of their own, gotten the public’s attention onto the economy. If it stays there we will lose.
The attention has to be on women’s equality and the war on terror, and Iraq. The economy is not a winning issue for McCain. The focus groups make this clear.
The sooner the markets are off the front page, the better.
Well we are in a world of hurt then, because this is not going of the front pages for a long time.
What the last several days have shown to the world is the leadership of McCain. While Obama and Biden have continued to gripe about Bush's failed policies, tax cuts leading to recession, and the patriotism of paying higher taxes McCain's campaign has rightfully put forth his prior opposition to Gramm-Leach-Bliley and his 2005 call for a change in the regulation of markets and his recognition of the pending failures of both Fannie and Freddie.
Obama and his fellow Dems are up to their neck in the Freddie and Fannie mess, supported Carter's CRA and the Clinton bastardization of it into a political boobdoggle. Throw in Barney Frank and Chris Dodd and this is an early Christmas gift to McCain if it is presenteed to the voters.
Sorry, guy. The polls have reversed. We’re down a few percent because Wall Street is on the front page. As long as that remains so, instead of Iraq and national security, we lose.
We can agree to disagree for now but I am remaining optimistic.
I LOVE that line. Can’t believe it comes from the LAT!
Yup. I end my lectures on decision-making with that quote. I think some of the young 'uns are surprised the ole prof knows about Rush.
Obama:”I have a plan, but you have to elect me first before I can give it to you.”
This is hilarious!!! Coming from the LA Times, its a pretty deep dig! Is LeftAngeles waking up?
