As President Obama finished his speech and round of questions tonight, I had to cheer at how nice it is to have an intelligent president. He thinks about the questions, answers them with articulate words, and admits when he has made a mistake or doesn't know the answer.
I also appreciate the fact that he reminded people more than once that this economic problem was inherited. The Republicans are acting like spoiled little frat boys who are trying to show power when their power has been taken away. The bottom line is that something HAS to be done. Things are a mess.
So, thank you, Mr. President. We know you aren't perfect and we know you have so many problems that you are trying to fix. But, not only do we finally have someone who knows how to say "nuclear" correctly, we have someone who cares and is really trying to look out for the American people. That in itself is enough to give us real hope.
