White House press secretary Dana Perino, asked today whether the president regrets not having backed an economic stimulus package sooner: "Well, the president's advisors advised him along the way; they'd get all sorts of incoming economic data, and at the appropriate time, they told the president that was when action needed to be taken, and the president wasted no time in saying, 'Well then, let's move forward.'"
