glad i'm not president.

Obama's press conference was well...a little harsh, a little much, a little unfortunate. 
but that's what happens when you take office from a rather incapable mr w. 
and really obama's been in office for a little more than 60 days and has been incredibly visible.  
he's everywhere.  press conferences, publicized meetings with congress, town hall events, leno, filling out college basketball brackets. i mean come on. he's letting us know the details of his plans (budget, recovery, etc) and managing to include march madness publicity at the same time. impressive impressive impressive.

so you can follow the link below and listen to his press conference on 3/24 or read the transcript (as if you will...)

but here was the brilliant quote from the not-so brilliant press conference.
obama was answering a question from a correspondent from ebony magazine 
he was asked about the homeless issue  (more like epidemic) in the US and obama provided a rather brilliant reply

"Now in the meantime, we've got to work very closely with the states to monitor and to help people who are still falling through the cracks. And you know, the homeless problem was bad even when the economy was good.  Part of the change in attitudes that I want to see here in Washington and all across the country is a belief that it is not acceptable for children and families to be without a roof over their heads in a country as wealthy as ours."
