That is essentially what Obama said – will say, and keep on saying it. And you know what, he is right.
“It took many years and many failures to lead us here. And it will take many months and many different solutions to lead us out. There are no quick fixes, and there are no silver bullets,” he said.
“We’ll recover from this recession, but it will take time, it will take patience, and it will take an understanding that, when we all work together, when each of us looks beyond our own short-term interest to the wider set of obligations we have towards each other, that’s when we succeed,” he said.
What I find odd is that while watching the TV, CNN this time – the pundits were on saying that what is Obama doing, what is he going to do and, as it seemed to me, why are we waiting.
It did take years to get to where we are today – and it is not going to be a snap of the fingers and all is fine.
So, what will the MSM be asking next week? Something along the same lines as they have this week – albeit they won’t be razzing the public up so much in any lynching talk.
Pressed about why he waited three days to publicly speak out against AIG paying the bonuses, Obama told reporters, “It took us a couple of days because I like to know what I’m talking about before I speak.”
Seems reasonable to say that – yet, ‘he was getting testy’ one pundit said. Testy? I know after all the rabble rousing that the media had done over the last few days – and then intimate that the president of the United States should be as warbling as they, I’d be a bit pissed off at that question, too.
But – it is a 24 news service these days – and you have to fill in the time around the adverts/commercials.
