I watched most of the presidential press conference tonight. It began while we were at dinner and the manager of the restaurant was nice enough to allow us to tune the normally muted set away from sports.
As I’ve said in the past, I’m conflicted about what to do with our financial crisis. I’d like to punish the bastards who caused this. I’m worried that will hurt us even more. I’m a guy who’s not normally without an opinion, but I am flummoxed.
I like President Obama. I don’t know if he has the right answers, but I sense he’s working to protect my best interests. I didn’t have that feeling with Bush-43 or Clinton or Bush-41.
He seems like a smart guy. He’s very likable. None of that makes much difference. We really don’t have much choice but to trust him and hope for the best.
