WASHINGTON (SR) - In his first address to a joint session of Congress, President Barack Obama sought to soothe America's financial concerns, pledging to borrow hundreds of billions more for liberal social programs, and adding free college educations and health care to the mix.
"We will rebuild, we will recover, and the United States of America will emerge stronger than before - think Cuba without the frills," Obama said to thunderous Democratic applause.
In response to the President's upbeat speech, the markets today dropped faster than Bill Clinton's pants at a sorority mixer, leading many to question the brilliance of electing a socialist ex-crackhead community organizer to the nation's highest office.
"What was I thinking," asked Kashanda Johnson of Cleveland, Ohio. "My pimp handles money better than Barack. We're screwed."
