The Not Yet President's Priorities

Finish the following sentence, relative to President Barack Obama's meeting today in Washington, D.C.:

"We've got to act boldly. We've got to act swiftly. We cannot delay. The situation is getting worse. … We have to act and act now to break the momentum of this....."

a. War in Gaza. where civilians die in huge numbers
b. America's flagging economy

The correct answer is b. The economy requires immediate and dramatic action. The President Elect convened a huge meeting today to address the issue.

Over a ten day period, Barack Obama has said nothing regarding a, other than he is "not yet President." Apparently, this situation does not require immediate and dramatic action.
