"I Reject Those Theories." So Did We All.

At a press conference yesterday, President Obama pointed out Who Won The Election, you morons, and who didn't (why is ANYBODY quoting McCain's comments on the economy? why not dig up Pat Paulsen and ask him that he thinks?)

"In the past few days, I've heard criticisms that this [stimulus] plan is somehow wanting, and these criticisms echo the very same failed economic theories that led us into this crisis in the first place, the notion that tax cuts alone will solve all our problems, that we can ignore fundamental challenges like energy independence and the high cost of health care, that we can somehow deal with this in a piecemeal fashion and still expect our economy and our country to thrive.

"I reject those theories. And so did the American people when they went to the polls in November and voted resoundingly for change."
Even Letterman worked this into his monologue. Keep it up, President O.
