Watching Barack Obama talking about the economy right now, has suddenly made it very clear what we must do. Obama is laying it out in his speech. I will link it when I can find it.
My first impression of the speech is very positive, and gives me the hope that Obama now has the issue he will win on. He needs to hammer this issue every possible moment. He needs to articulate how he will fix the economy, show the country how the republican brand is wholly responsible for the current crisis, and get Congressional Democrats (and any republicans who want to keep their jobs) to support a comprehensive, thoughtful, and fair solution to our economic woes.
In order to make this happen, we must make Congress reject the bush/Paulson ‘good old rich boy bail out’ they have currently proposed and work with Obama to come up with the afore mentioned plan.
Wow. I had thought I would need to update this diary (comment) yesterday. Today I think it is a perfect lead in to developments that have been breaking today.
