"We will rebuild, we will recover, and the United States of America will emerge stronger than before."
Those were the words of our president in his firs address to Congress, no doubt spoken to challenge the country to have confidence at a time of crisis. But the question remains: did President Obama's first address to Congress make you feel more confident about the economy?
If a $700 billion banking rescue plan and another $700 billion economic stimulus have yet to jolt the confidence of entrepreneurs, lenders, workers and consumers, will his speech?
After watching or reading about Obama's speech, do you feel any better about your financial prospects this year? Do you feel challenged to do something, and if so, what?
