This recession could linger for years.

 

Now the change is in him. Just days from inauguration, Barack Obama is striking a different tone. This soaring campaign rhetoric----‘America, this is our moment. This is our time’, has given way to grim reality. With the country mired and in an ugly recession, the President Elect is calling for national sacrifice, warning there could actually be more job losses this year than last. The economy is also forcing Mr. Obama’s team to reconsider some campaign pledges, ‘I don’t believe in running up debt for the next generation’, such as reining in deficits spending and scrapping the Bush tax cuts on the wealthiest Americans before they expire in late 2010.

 

‘We have tried George Bush’s way and it hasn’t worked.’

 

Some of the new Verein is aimed at attracting Republican support for the incoming President’s economic recovery plan. But that could set up an early battle now in the heavily Democratic Congress.  

 

‘I wanna a repeal of the tax-cut for the highest income people in America.’

 

‘Then would be tax increase for those richer America?’

 

‘This isn’t tax increase. This focus of the tax cuts should be on America’s middle class, the backbone of our democracy. We’ve gotten really the moil shaft in the past 8 years.’

 

Mr. Obama is asking for sacrifice from Congress as well. Some political observers say the economic crisis raises the stakes.

 

‘They strengthen Barack Obama hand with the Congress and the public. It’s so urgent that it’s going to be very very hard, I think, for people who don’t like partial this package to vote against him.’

 

Mr. Obama is now in the business of managing expectations, warning Americans the country not only needs hope but hard work. He called the task ahead a heavy lift.’
