If I'm not mistaken Obama wants to put the cap on a CEO salary to $500,000. ...While I disagree with the figure, I still think it should be capped. And if CEOs are going to have their salary capped so should athletes.

It seems like all the news is lately is what Obama is doing. Personally I don't care to hear "BREAKING NEWS OBAMA AT THE PODIUM" or "THIS JUST IN OBAMA IS ON CAPITOL HILL TALKING TO LAWMAKERS" As far as I'm concerned it's more media fluff.
All in all I think he did good with the press conference. He did talk a lot but at least he had a clue what he was talking about and he was understandable and intelligent. I just hope this stimulus can actually jump start the economy and get it headed back towards a path of growth and productivity. I personally think it's an awful lot of spending and I don't believe we can spend our way out of debt without serious consequences down the road but why does Washington care? they'll just do what they always do and pawn it off on the next generation.

Yea, this guy isn't that bad. Its all the Obama fanboys that are making people had a bad taste in their mouth. They act like he saved the world before he even got in office.

Oh, yeah, I do my fair share of spending, haha. Don't think it makes a huge difference though... considering, most of it is on gas...

I don't think there should be caps on jobs though. Athletes or CEOs, even if they make multi-million dolar figures, good for them.
