(CNN) - A senior democratic official confirms the president elect is planning a major speech on the economy Thursday.
Thank You Mr. Obama, you would never know that we still have Idiot republican sitting president still in office.
DC-4-MO Great story your family and millions more like them is the reason why Mr. Obama ran for president. Your son is a very bright kid.
GET READY AND SEE HOW MANY MORE FLIP FLOPS HE WILL DO BEFORE HE IS EVEN SEATED . ASK REID FOR LOOKS AS IF HE IS THERE LEADER.
President-elect Barack Obama: keep it straight, keep it simple, keep it honest, and demand that all parties to the economic recovery plan(s), including you, our future President, be accountable for any/all action taken. After the last eight years of the most dishonest and corrupt administration in our nation's history, we, the American people, and the world, deserve better. God luck, and God speed.
The fundamentals of the economy are strong.
did bill and hillary say he could? you all know the clintons pushed richardson out, dont you?
Lets see whats done about Franken dont believe it was done according to Americas system it was crooked....................then lets see whats done about Blago appointment to the Senate since he was told not to appointment anyone he seems to think hes above the law......I am so sick of hearing about how crooked the Democrats are they have to change or its going to be a very short four years...so far all we have is Clintons staff in the White House ...... He wasn't a very good President and now its a repeat not a change...............funny how promises are made and not kept...............NO CHANGE
Good...a president who will talk directly to the people. Transparency as he promised.
Funny how the media is now saying how PE Obama is appealing to Republicans by outlining tax breaks for mainly small business when PE Obama stated that constantly throughout his presidential campaign.
President Bush have released more statements supporting Israel against the Palestinians in the past 10 days than he had regarding our sinking economy in the past 10 months.
Someone else has to take on the economy ---PRESIDENT OBAMA
But ... but ... "we only have on President at a time".
My fellow Americans I have never had a real job, never made a payroll
never started a company or ran one but today I will tell you how it all works.
Not even inaugurated yet and feels comfy speaking to the nation–sounds like he isn't sure he still has fans out there, as he did on his big speech night before the election. Save the speeches for when you are the prez and what you have to say might matter.
Hold on to your seats everyone, it's going to be an inspired one!!
I'd imagine PE Obama might be advising of his economic recovery plan, along with trying to dispel the fear most people are experiencing towards Wall St and Main St. He'll also try to leave folks with a sense of hope and belief that his plan can/will work. The media refers to this as 'confidence'.
A very, very tall order and one which, if successful, will pave the road to recovery. What the American people (including businesses) need to realize however, is that Obama and his administration can provide the means, but they are the ones that must follow through with borrowing/lending, hiring/spending etc, to make it work.
I don't want to get stuck with Biden if Obama is impeached or forced to resign... can we have a do over?
I hope reports are wrong that the Obama stimulus plan will be 40% tax cuts. Tax cuts did nothing to help the economy during the Bush years, and Republicans will fight tooth and nail to make any temporary tax cut permanent, portraying Democrats who want to let a temporary cut expire as favoring higher taxes.
It is a fallacy perpetrated by Republicans that lower taxes mean better economy. All it's really meant is smaller investments in the public good–schools, roads, environmental protection, etc.
If the Obama folks need "shovel ready" projects to spend money on, I'm happy to let them fund the rest of my home renovation.
This is funny.. Hello PE Obama, the elections are over!! giving speeches does not matter any more. what matters is getting things done. speeches got you elected but speeches wont end iraq war, speeches wont get the economy back on track, speeches wont stop terror outfits trying to kill us.
We are in financial Hell and I don't believe for one nano second that we can spend a Trillion Dollars on Pork Projects and be out of this Hell.
We need some brilliant conservatives to offer up a better way!
I pray daily for Devine Intervention from what is currently planed…
It will completely shut us down, without hope for recovery for Generations!
We don't need a speech or lecture on the economy.... WE NEED ACTION!
We are in the middle of the financial crisis and the Obama team is going to be spending outrageously more than any other previous President on the Inauguration parties.
That is sending Americans the wrong message and as a Democrat I am extremely disappointed that Obama would not be more sensitive and cautious about the lavish spending.
People across America are losing their homes and job on a daily basis. We are struggling to keep food on the table and his LAVISH PARTYS is telling us that he doesn't care!
That is not the change I expected from President Elect Obama.
I'm fired up! Lets here how, he plans to fix this countries, worst economic troubles, in the last 20 years.
Personally, I say, he should explain how we will end the war in Iraq, that costs 10 million dollars or something like that a week, cut other government programs, that don't work.
Thank you kindly President elect Obama for the open communication that you continue to provide us with so often. I love your integrity thus far. Hope Malia and Sasha had a wonderful day at their new school! I'm sure they will adjust just fine. Hope and pray that the things go well for you and your entire family. Love you all.
We need some brilliant conservatives to offer up a better way!
Yea we've seen what the 'brilliant conservatives' do for our Nation – basically NOTHING for us – everything for themselves.
Welcome President Obama! I have complete faith in you and your policies.
Sweetie – it's nice that you copy and paste the same comments on every post. It saves us the time of reading your pure trivia.

Good Grief people = at least let him take office and then see what he'll do. I feel so sorry for you. Hey, we all had to live under the horrible Bush Admin these last 8 years – let's give Obama a chance before we condem him.
ANybody study how the Roman Empire fell? Debt got too big. What is our GDP and how much is the Federal Debt? LEt me see upwards to 1 trillion dollars in handouts. The dollar becomes worthless on world markets. Oil shoots back up in price etc.
Oh did anybody notice states are cutting "shovel projects" from their budgets as they have hit hard times with their tax and spend policies. Guess what all Obama is doing is saving jobs not creating new ones.
