Stock Market To Obama (And Helen Thomas): We Are Not Impressed

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.
Please note: The postings of "G. Morris", written by John K. Bush and which end in 2016, stated his views as of the dates of posting and should not be understood as current assertions of his views. The postings, which have not been altered since they came to an end, remain on this blog to preserve the historical record. In 2017, Mr. Bush took a position that precludes further public political comments or endorsements. He will no longer be contributing to this blog.
