Never before has such eloquence said so little -- that seems to be Wall Street's verdict on President Obama's first prime-time press conference held yesterday evening, as well as Treasury Secretary Geithner's press conference held this morning. The Dow thus far has fallen almost 300 points. Maybe the President should actually answer a question at the next press conference instead of giving a 10-minute non-responsive, dozer speech.
And what is it with Helen Thomas and her "alleged terrorist" questioning? One of her questions Obama actually could have answered quite easily, but even that one he dodged. Yes, Helen, al Qaida is in Pakistan.
Update: The final damage to the Dow today: -381.99.
