We had an Economic Recovery House Meeting at our house yesterday. People came over to share their stories and brainstorm on how to help President Obama get the recovery rolling. Some people were unemployed, many were underemployed. Small business owners spoke of cutting back and putting off expansion plans. A professor talked of his students who are about to graduate, and are finding they are competing with 700 or 900 applicants for a single job.
Even so, the mood was upbeat. The Republican attack machine couldn't stop Obama the candidate, and we don't believe it will stop President Obama. And we want to help.
