Barack Obama spoke today in Richmond, VA, to a crowd of 12,900. I know I haven't been posting enough Obama speeches, and that's something I've told myself to do. He's saying a lot of things the American people will need to hear in the coming weeks and months. The economy is going to be in serious trouble for a very long time (at least two years, according to Roubini), so we need to prepare for the hard work ahead.
I'm so tired of this slash-n-burn style of American politics. It's a soccer brawl in search of a soccer match. We need a functioning government again, not a pack of criminal ideologues.
