WAKE UP, MR PRESIDENT AND LEAD!

I don't care what they say about you, Mr. President. Your job is to lead.

How much can go wrong in the two months before Mr. Obama takes the oath of office? The answer, unfortunately, is: a lot. Consider how much darker the economic picture has grown since the failure of Lehman Brothers, which took place just over two months ago. And the pace of deterioration seems to be accelerating.

Put down the canned speeches and save the country. Krugman makes a good point. A lot can happen in two months and I am saddened to see that you have lost your enthusiasm to serve all Americans.
