    Obama Inspires; Bobby Jindal, the Anti-Crist, Offers Nothing

    It's been said so many times the economic problem is as much psychological as monetary that it must be true.

    Crist's Admirable Stim Support Makes 2012 Prez Run Unlikely

    The economic stimulus is likely to be one of the defining actions of President Obama's first term. If it's perceived to be successful by November 2012, we're more than likely looking at four more years.
