| ||Obama's Speech|
I had been feeling so sorry for the President. In bad times, it is so easy to point fingers and be impatient.
I have not at all been a fan of bailouts. I think that the stock market is so stupid to go up so much because Ben Bernanke said that we will be out of this mess in '09. He has no idea what he's doing. Some of you laughed when I said Warren Buffett was making a mistake investing in financials, and his stock has been trounced. One of you said wow GF is actually critical of Warren Buffett? Duh!
Obama is like the energizer bunny. Nothing shakes him - I mean I know it hasn't been long, and I know he's been having setbacks, and I don't agree with everything he's doing - but I gotta hand this to him. He believes. He actually thinks there's hope for the U.S.
And to be honest, that's the kind of leader the U.S. needs. Not a guy like me who says it's over and China's going to stop buying our treasuries, and the dollar's going to tank, and it's going to default, etc. Even though I'm sure I'm right - we don't need a President who agrees in my realistic scenarios.
The United States emerging again is always a possibility. He is a man who believes when people like me gave up and moved to Canada. I want Obama to be right, I want me to be wrong. I want everybody to say - hey GF - remember when you said the U.S. was hosed? Obama saved it. And I want to say thank God democracy works!
