- Obama Offered Deal to Russia in Secret Letter (U.S. would give up missile defense system in Europe if Russia would help stop Iran from building long-range missile systems.)
- RUSSIA BRUSHES OFF OBAMA: NO ‘HAGGLING’

- Arabs must unite to confront a nuclear Iran, Saudi FM says
- Secretary Clinton in Israel: U.S. to dispatch two envoys to Syria
- Netanyahu: Clinton and I found common ground
- Damascus Urged to Come Clean on Nuclear Activity
ECONOMIC HEADLINES TO TRACK:
- FLASHBACK: Bible Prophecy and the U.S. and Global Economies: “It’s almost as if you can hear the ice cracking beneath our feet”
- Investors Business Daily: Markets are down 30% since Obama was elected, “slicing over $3 trillion from Americans’ wealth” and causing investors to walk away from investing, “while businesses [have] shut down factories and offices and slash[ed] jobs.”
- Dow finishes below 7,000 for first time since ’97
- White House Knocks Jim Cramer For Calling Obama Budget “Greatest Wealth Destruction By a President”
- Video Clip: Jim Cramer on NBC’s Today Show: “We have an agenda in this country now that I would regard as being a radical agenda. I think we had a budget that came out that basically put a level of fear in this country that I have not seen ever in my life, and I think that that changed everything.”
- Washington Post: Obama Administration likely to hire 250,000 new government workers
- Wall Street Journal: The Obama Economy: As the Dow keeps dropping, the President is running out of people to blame. “As 2009 opened, three weeks before Barack Obama took office, the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 9034 on January 2, its highest level since the autumn panic. Yesterday the Dow fell another 4.24% to 6763, for an overall decline of 25% in two months and to its lowest level since 1997. The dismaying message here is that President Obama’s policies have become part of the economy’s problem. Americans have welcomed the Obama era in the same spirit of hope the President campaigned on. But after five weeks in office, it’s become clear that Mr. Obama’s policies are slowing, if not stopping, what would otherwise be the normal process of economic recovery. From punishing business to squandering scarce national public resources, Team Obama is creating more uncertainty and less confidence — and thus a longer period of recession or subpar growth.”
- What Rush actually said about the U.S. economy and President Obama: “Do you know that President Obama, in six weeks of his administration, has proposed more spending than from the founding of the country to his inauguration? Now, this is not prosperity. It is not going to engender prosperity. It’s not going to create prosperity and it’s also not going to advance or promote freedom. It’s going to be just the opposite. There are going to be more controls over what you can and can’t do, how you can and can’t do it, what you can and can’t drive, what you can and can’t say, where you can and can’t say it. All of these things are coming down the pike, because it’s not about revenue generation to them, it’s about control.”
- Heritage Foundation analysis concludes Obama plan will increase federal debt by more than $3.5 trillion over the next two years alone: “The United States looks to issue between $3.5 and $4 trillion of government debt over the next two years, possibly more, thanks to deficit spending under current policy, the stimulus bill, and the financing of TARP II. To put this in context, the total publicly held debt today is about $6.4 trillion, so we’re talking about increasing the outstanding debt by more than half in just two years.”
