"Economy going in 'right direction'" depends on which direction it's going. Is socialism the right direction ? If so Obama is right.

I think it would be very, very wise if people really watched their spending over the next year or so. It took a long time fr us to get in this predictament and it's going to take a long time, if ever to get ourselves out. We Americans are good about being able to bounce back from any crisis, but because part of our problems today is based on greed, I don't hold out for a lot of hope for those that cling to the old-fashioned American values-Faith, Family, Country, Freedom.
We have not learned a thing from 9/11. We haven't learned that the most important things in life aren't about money and who we can screw over.
We don't teach kids about honor and morals and manners. Kids don't know what family values are because there is none in their own family. Parents want the schools to raise their kids. I have to wonder why some of these parents ever had kids in the first place. I can remember when the word "latch-key kids" was about the most horrible news story you could read. Now its common place for a 9yr old to be left on his own for hours.
Sorry I went off subject, but I don't think we will ever be the same. I think we have just opened up a whole new can of greedy individuals.

Right direction, ha! What a cluster of mental deficits in the whitehouse! Oh, it's tax time, it's also time for obama's collection of "community organizers" to dodge paying again.
