Wow. The President isn't pulling any punches out there tonight.
The talking heads on cable were saying just before the speech that this wasn't going to be a campaign speech. Ha! After the cute opening about Iraq and Bin Laden, he's done nothing but attack, attack, attack since.

I have to give the President and his writers points for moxie.

The questions are:

2) Can anything be done about it that won't hurt the economy drastically?
3) Is it worth doing anything about?

The answer to the first has been given by overwhelming scientific consensus.
The answers to the last two have been given by popular ignorance, corporate money and self-serving politicians.
