CHICAGO (AP) — President-elect Barack Obama was staying in Chicago for the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday Thursday and squeezing in some holiday shopping, a day after trying to reassure Americans about the ailing economy as stores braced for a rough season.

"Help is on the way," he proclaimed Wednesday at his third news briefing on the economy this week. Fifty-five days away from taking office, he declared he would have an economic plan ready for action "starting day one."

Hey Barack we need some help big time, I don't want to get my expectations to high at the moment because basically we are in dire straits. Obama told Barbara Walters we are not getting out of the hole overnight and he is no miracle worker, this I know as well as should most Americans this hole is fairly deep and it will take some time to get out, I just hope America continues trying to get out and not dig another one by putting in office the trickle down economic theory most Republicans believe in.

It is really no theory anymore we have proved that it don't work that's for sure, having said that I think that Obama will get us on tract but how long remains out there. We can all set around and speculate how long but it does not help that much, see how everything is going about next summer and then we can know a little more,,keeping the faith.

    I like the way Obama reassures people--no quick fixes, this will take time. But he stays in touch via YouTube and radio--very cool!
