As I write, President Bush is holding a press conference on the economy. (If you can't hear it on your NPR station, you can find it here, on the NPR website.) According to John Ward, a reporter for The Washington Times, "A White House release says that he'll begin with an eight-minute statement 'regarding Americans' understandable anxiety about issues affecting their pocketbooks.'"
If you're listening to the press conference, what do you think? He is talking about energy prices, rising food costs, mortgage payments, and student loans. How are these issues playing out in your life?
