Well. Will we now be told that President Obama doesn't care about black people?

Rebuild, Hell. I thought a big part of the problem was that we had overbuilt...

Nero burned Rome so that he could rebuild it, or so the story goes. In America, we need to build, but not to rebuild, since what we have is still usable. IMHO.
Oh, and I'm sick of hearing him talk about the situation he 'inherited'. He didn't inherit it, he helped create it. He was a part of the Senate that created this situation. He actively opposed efforts to stabilize Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. He bears responsibiltiy for it. He talks now about taking responsibility for our past actions. He could begin by accepting a little of his own, and dropping the word 'inherited' from his economic lexicon.
