Keith Olbermann Discusses Obama's Speech

Keith Olbermann reported on President-elects economic speech yesterday, and comments made by Nancy Pelosis.

Nancy made the declaration that if the stimulus package is not passed by President's Day, there would be no President's recess. Olbermann pointed out the rank hypocrisy of John Bohner who had no trouble running up deficits during the Bush years, and is now trying to paint himself as a deficit hawk.

Olbermann interviewed Howard Fineman about the growing debate within Democratic ranks over the stimulus. Watch it here:

There is definitely a debate about the needs for tax cuts, which I think is good. I don't agree with including so much in tax cuts.

Rachel Maddow then gave her take on Obama's speech. She pointed out that Obama's speech was a break, not with just the outgoing Bush administration, but with the administrations of Clinton, George H. W. Bush, and Ronald Reagan. She also reported on the confirmation hearings.

Watch her analysis and interview Robert Reich:
