Another story now. In a Philadelphia area, it has some people scratching their heads, disturbed as well. The president of this swim club says that safety not racism1 was the reason for canceling swimming privileges for minority children. The kids from a predominantly African American day care center pay to swim each week at this private club. During their first visits, some of the children reported hearing racial comments. Days later, the club returned the day care center's money and withdrew its membership. The club's president says there were too many kids for the size of the pool and the number of lifeguard. Take a listen.

I apologize deeply for any misunderstanding, was never on intention to hurt anyone or for anyone to be offended here. And this is a terrible misunderstanding. And I would actually, I would send my best wishes to the camp and all the camps really because they have gotten an outpouring of support from all over the country. " "And they deserve it, she's doing wonderful work, giving these children a safe place to be which is what we are trying to do also."

Alright, well, Pennsylvanian State officials now investigating the club’s actions.

President Obama, he spoke2 to the Canadian parliament a little earlier, also speaking to this country in his weekly address, directing his message to all the Americans. And in it, the president brushing aside, talked of a second stimulus3 bill. He is asking for patience however for that first stimulus bill, that's 787-billion-dollar package that he signed in February. He says however that it is showing progress.

In low over 100 days, this recovery act has worked as intended. It's already extended unemployment insurance and health insurance to those who've lost their jobs in this recession. It's delivered 43 billion dollars in tax relief to American working families and businesses. Without the help, the recovery act is provided to struggling states. It's estimated that the state deficits4 would be nearly twice as large as they are now, resulting in tens of thousands of additional layoffs5, layoffs that would affect police officers, teachers and firefighters." As he has done in the past, the president tied the economic crisis to the last administration, the Bush administration. However, this is now Mr. Obama's economy to deal with. At least according to Republican, they said they put it in their own weekly address the House Republican Whip Eric Cantor calls the stimulus bill nothing but pork waste and massive borrowing. The plain truth is the President Obama's economic decisions have not produced jobs, have not produced prosperity and simply have not worked. President Obama has already asked you to borrow trillions of dollars. And so far nearly 3 million jobs have been lost alone this year. Remember the promises? They promised you that if you pay for their stimulus, jobs would be created immediately. In fact they said the unemployment would stay under 8%. Yet just months later, they are telling us now to brace6 for unemployment to climb over 10%" Now the GOP did have its own version of the stimulus bill cost about 478 billion dollars. Not a single House Republican voted for the president's stimulus bill.
