Sources close to the White House say Mr Obama and his staff have been "overwhelmed" by the economic meltdown and have voiced concerns that the new president is not getting enough rest.
While I am sure that that is not the real reason Barack Obama gave Gordon Brown less than a stellar welcome, but I will give him the benefit of the doubt. Barack Obama should take a break for the next three years. He is doing way too much. He needs his rest. The economy might actually stabilize if Barack Obama just does nothing.
So, Mr. President, Sit Back, Relax do nothing - you deserve it.
