Obama trashes miltary and talks down economy

Obama on the economy....

"What I don't think people should do is suddenly stuff money in their mattresses and pull back completely from spending," he said.

Still, he avoided guessing when the situation might begin to turn around. "Our belief and expectation is that we will get all the pillars in place for recovery this year," he said. "How long it will take before recovery actually translates into stronger job markets and so forth is going to depend on a whole range of factors."

Obama on the war in Afghanistan....

Asked if the United States was winning in Afghanistan, a war he effectively adopted as his own last month by ordering an additional 17,000 troops sent there, Obama replied flatly, "No."
