We'll have clips as they come available. In the meantime:
President Barack Obama, who hopes to use a prime-time press conference tonight to promote both his administration's solutions for the recession and the new budget that he proposes, will call the $3.55-trillion spending plan part of the solution.
"We've put in place a comprehensive strategy designed to attack this crisis on all fronts,'' the president plans to say in his opening remarks at the 8 pm EDT White House news conference. "It's a strategy to create jobs, to help responsible homeowners, to re-start lending, and to grow our economy over the long-term. And we are beginning to see signs of progress.''
Supporters praise the president's budget as ambitious in its initatives, but critics call it another Democratic dose of big-spending -- with a deficit of more than $1 trillion next year, which Obama promises to halve by the end of his term.
"The budget I submitted to Congress will build our economic recovery on a stronger foundation, so that we do not face another crisis like this ten or twenty years from now,'' Obama plans to say, according to the White House.
"We invest in the renewable sources of energy that will lead to new jobs, new businesses, and less dependence on foreign oil,'' the president will say of his budget.
Chuck Todd thinks Obama is Bush and needs to ask the American people to sacrifice. Obama tells him what is so freaking obvious. They have sacrificed already. Bush told us to just buy something like a lamebrain when the country needed some leadership and he offered none.
Chip Reid has become the Republican mouthpiece.
Bill O'Reilly must be very disappointed that President Obama is trying to explain himself clearly and not giving us quick one-liners.
