When all of one's plans for the economy only makes it worse and you haven't a clue what to do, blame Bush. It's easy, it will make you feel better and all of your like minded friends will nod their heads and stroke their chins in a sage repose of wisdom.

Record number in government anti-poverty programs

Government anti-poverty programs that have grown to meet the needs of recession victims now serve a record one in six Americans and are continuing to expand.

Obama: "It Took Nearly A Decade To Dig The Hole That We're In"

President Obama criticizes the economic policies of former President Bush and the current "partisan minority" in Congress. Obama asks Republicans to drop the economic "blockade."

Obama says he ignored Beck rally... Drudge

“It’s not surprising that somebody like a Mr. Beck is able to stir up a certain portion of the country. That's been true throughout our history,” he said. But “what I’m focused on is making sure that the decisions we’re making now are going to be be not good for the nightly news, not good even necessarily for the next election, but are good for the next generation.”

I am sure that President Obama, being the highly educated professor that he says he is, has heard of the "bully pulpit." He might reach back in his memory and even remember that that bear shootin' SOB, Teddy Roosevelt, defined it clearly and understood its use completely.

The caveat to the bully pulpit is that one can speak to people's values or one can plant a seed of thought, but one can never speak to the baseness of man nor plant a seed in a barren field of ideas and expect growth.

Beck spoke to the moral character of our nation and planted the seed of returning to America's greatness and it works because people believe him and believe in that which he spoke. Obama has yet to learn that just sayin' it don't make it so. Tough for a professor to grasp, but with time he can get his head around such an idea or ideal, if you will.
