I find that I get into the most difficulty with my personal budget when I ignore the problems facing us. It seems that this is exactly what this country is doing right now as it relates to our current economy. The conservatives are not saying much, but they are taking allot. They are saying do not stimulate and control the deficit. The liberals are saying and doing nothing because of having heard the conservative message repeatedly. By default, the conservative message prevails.
The administration needs to go into campaign mode. Address the issue. Re-establish a campaign team. This time the campaign should be to save the economy. The politics of the situation is that nothing will happen unless the public supports a stimulus package. Obama needs to take a lesson from the movie Invictus where Nelson Mandela is a leader by example.
