Non-State of the Union Fallout Hey. How about that Bobby Jindal speech, huh? Our fifth story on the Countdown: Now that he's given a Republican Response slammed by apparently all but one Republican, what's he going to do now? He's going... to Disney World. Seriously. Taking the family to Orlando. At least that's his story. And unfortunately, his story last night -- the lynchpin anecdote...Apparently not true.
Attraction of Rule: When the water main to your house is broken, you won't improve things... by pumping more water through it. Yet that has been the U-S government approach to fixing America's crippled credit system... pumping more money into corroded, corrupted pipes -- the banks. Tonight, in our fourth story on the Countdown, with bank executives acting as though the government built them a water park... President Obama today went before the cameras with a plunger and a wrench. All right, enough with the metaphors.
ODDBALL: Glass Fishy and a Guy with 7 Foot Beard.
Twits-a-Twittering: As President Obama gave his Joint Address to Congress last night...Republicans were looking to cook up a response And no, I'm not referring to Governor Jindal's televised rebuttal. They needed something big... Something akin to the Reagan Revolution... Something like the Gingrich Revolution of 1994...Our third story on the Countdown...the next Republican uprising will happen through...Twitter.
WORST PERSON IN THE WORLD:
Doggy Decision: The big idea may have been planted on the very day that Barock Obama became the President of the United States... In our number one story on the Countdown, what kind of dog... the Obamas will get for their daughters, Malia and Sasha. Michelle Obama has made her decision: a Portuguese Water dog. But her office tonight says hers is one of only four votes in the Obama family.
