The bottom is here! Recovery is right around the corner!
Obama will save us! Everything's going to be okay!
We're all going to die! Hoard canned goods and ammunition!
I don't know what to think. I guess nobody does. Sometimes I think it's all no big deal, and sometimes I don't think we're going to last the month.
And yes, I know that means through Saturday.
I want to believe Obama will make a difference, I really do. And goodness knows, he's better than the band of war criminals and tycoon apologists that he replaced. But these problems we're facing seem so impossible, so weighty and complex and multifactorial, that it doesn't seem like anyone or anything can solve them.
I don't like that President Obama has already bombed Pakistan through the CIA Predators. I don't like that he has so many advisers that are so close to the mistakes of the past.
It seems like an awfully thin reed to tie my hopes to the imagined decency of one lonely man.
