Obama’s news conference…

“help responsible homeowners stay in their homes.”

Responsible?  You mean buying more house than they could afford while planning on refinancing in a year when prices went up?

“That’s what an efficient health care system that controls costs and entitlements like Medicare and Medicaid will do. ”

efficient?!? control costs?!? How about broke in 7 years…

“When it comes to cap-and-trade, the broader principle is that we’ve got to move to a new energy era, and that means moving away from polluting energy sources towards cleaner energy sources. That is a potential engine for economic growth.

I think cap-and-trade is the best way, from my perspective, to achieve some of those gains, because what it does is it starts pricing the pollution that’s being sent into the atmosphere.”

Funny… Congress decided not to utilize the ‘cap and trade’ for their own power plant because they could not verify that it actually reduced emissions overall…

“the biggest driver of long-term deficits are the huge health care costs that we’ve got out here that we’re going to have to tackle”

That would be the ‘efficient’ Medicaid and Medicare…
