Yesterday it was hard to leave the television. I watched the news channels as President Obama implemented change in the US. Change that will affect the world. The most significant changes were the closing down of Guantanamo Bay, and the new signals sent to the world about the war on terror, and how these signals were delivered. Did you notice how his first stop was the State Department and not the Department of Defense? Did you watch him and Hillary Clinton address the State Department?
Obama will address the economy today.It’s hard to imagine how they are going to solve this one. Will trillions and trillions of dollars save the US.? It’s going to be something like an $8.5 trillion bailout eventually. How many 0′s is that?
