In the first of a series of videos, Sen. Sanders talked directly to viewers in a recent video post on his Web site and YouTube page. "What I want to do now, is give viewers an overview of what's going on in Washington and the role I intend to be playing in the next several weeks," said Sanders. Sanders spoke about the "greed, incompetence and recklessness" that has led us to the greatest economic crisis since the Great Depression; a stimulus plan to put people back to work building and repairing roads, bridges, and schools; efforts to wean us off of foreign oil and rely more heavily on wind, solar, and other renewable energies; and assisting cities and states overcome their local economic crises. He noted that such efforts will be challenged by entrenched special interests from Wall Street to drug companies to the "military industrial complex." Sanders said, "The goal right now is to begin to rebuild our country and move America in a very different way than how Bush has taken us the last eight years."
