So stop listening to the Republicans for your directions, Barry! Paul Krugman exposes how lost they are, more so than you, when it comes to the economy. You have but one job remaining prior to the next election: to keep a stable economic heading, whether or not you run again. You have to turn things around to do so, and your opposition isn't as strong as you might believe. Even Republican voters are no longer sure the nation is economically sound, whether you run the nation or their party does. You just have to keep our foreign investors from taking their money out of our economy due to a loss of confidence. Putting Main Street back to work can only help.
It's a big job! You might take some notes on what to say next year when you again address Congress on the State of the Union, which just might be your last chance to say anything significant as president.
