watch it: the 2/21/09 weekly address from President Barack Obama

As always, he sounds good. But will his plans work? Should they work? If home prices have been run up by artificial means that are disconnected from their true value, how much should we be trying to shore them up? If rampant consumerism is part of what got us into this mess, should we be encouraging people to shop? (And will an average of $65 a month for a working family have much of an impact by that measure anyway?) How can our economy survive if it’s based on people buying crap? Is all of this just putting a Band-aid over arterial spray?
