Today, President Obama made a visit to the Capitol to sit down with House Republicans to discuss his proposed economic stimulus package. Obama took a bold step today attempting to reach across the aisle and acknowledge that the current state of the economy isn't a partisan or an American problem – but a worldly one.
We've seen the news report every single day about how things have gone from bad to worse. We live in a world driven by fear – Apocalypse in 2012? Date spawns theories, film, Israel launches attacks in Gaza, Yahoo Has $303.4 Million Loss; Sales Meet Estimates.
It's hard to get past it all, but today Obama made an effort to do some good and quickly resolve a serious issue. One can only hope that our economy makes a turn around soon and the negative and fear-driven media change their focus to more optimistic and uplifting stories.
