President's Weekly Address: 'Calling for Fiscal Discipline'

This week the President reiterates a theme that has been a hallmark of his career, namely that "old habits and stale thinking" will simply not help us solve the new and immense problems our country faces. Listing off several specific changes he intends to bring, he describes his guiding principle:
"To help build a new foundation for the 21st century, we need to reform our government so that it is more efficient, more transparent, and more creative. That will demand new thinking and a new sense of responsibility for every dollar that is spent."



I gotta tell you ... I've never been more proud of my president than I am of Barack Obama. When you consider the level of difficulty his presidency had upon his inauguration ... don't you have to give him a grade of 'A' on the first 100 days?

Hearing the President speak about "fiscal responsibility" gives me hope that those politicians in the House and Senate will either join in partnership with righting the economic problems our country faces or they will have to answer to the voters they represent.

underOver - Amen! In the meantime, it is up to each of us to right the economic problems in our own households (where necessary). We need to live with some 'fiscal responsibility' on our end...
