President Obama Speaks About the Stimulus

Well worth watching.

Great moments:

"I don't care if you're in hybrid or an SUV, if you're heading for a cliff it's time to change direction."

"This is not a game. This is not a contest for who's in power and who's up and who's down. These are your consituents. These are families that you know and you care about. I believe it is time to set aside some of the gamesmanship of this town and get something done."

It's not something we see from him very often, but I think President Obama is starting to get pissed off. Now, I admire the steadiness of his temper, and the largeness of character he shows by giving everyone the benefit of the doubt. But when it comes to Republicans sticking stubbornly by economic theories that have already failed - that economists agree won't work - in order to block a stimulus plan that CAN work, now is a good time to say: enough is enough.

Call your Senator. Tell them they need to help President Obama get Americans back to work.
