The full Obama interview, along with the passing to the torch to David Gregory.
A lot of attention has been focused today on the fact that Obama said the economy will get worse before it gets better…
â€œIf you look at the unemployment numbers … the fragility of the financial system and the fact that itâ€™s an international system,â€ the recession â€œis a big problem, and itâ€™s going to get worse,â€ Obama told NBC Newsâ€™ Tom Brokaw on Saturday. The interview aired Sunday on NBCâ€™s â€œMeet the Press.â€
Acknowledging that his agenda had changed sharply just in the month since he was elected, Obama said passing a short-term economic stimulus package was now his top priority.
â€œWeâ€™ve got to provide a blood infusion right now, make sure that the patient is stabilized,â€ he said, adding that the budget deficit, by some estimates more than $1 trillion, would have to be put on the back burner â€œfor now.â€
â€œWeâ€™ve got to get the economy moving,â€ he said.
Anybody think he’s wrong?
