watch it: the 1/24/09 weekly address from President Barack Obama

“The paradox and the promise of this moment” — I like this.

“Act as citizens”? Imagine that.

At Recovery.gov there’s just a placeholder right now. It reads:

I’m trying very hard not to feel like Charlie Brown looking at Lucy Van Pelt holding a football and wondering if just this once, it won’t get snatched away if he runs at it…
