Obamaout of Touch? I’m angry,”,Mr.Obama said

drawing by marguerita .... the finest in Oval Office:“I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry. I’m angry,” Mr. Obama said

“It’s almost like they’ve got — they’ve got a bomb strapped to them and they’ve got their hand on the trigger,” President Obama said on Thursday of the banks he’s chosen to bail out. “You don’t want them to blow up. But you’ve got to kind of talk [to] them, ease that finger off the trigger.”
