Obama urges major new stimulus, jobs spending
A glimmer of hope. Obama talking about boosting spending to jumpstart the economy. Maybe Krugman got to him at the jobs summit. The president says he's "mindful of the deficits, but we've got more to do."
It's encouraging at least; things had been looking bleak.
On a sour note he's still talking about ways "we're going to pay for it." There's that "out of money" belief popping up again. Gold standard/fixed exchange rate stuff: not applicable.
