    Obama to give health-care speech to joint session of Congress



    Posted on Wed, Sep. 02, 2009


    Obama will huddle first at the White House on Tuesday with the top Democrats in Congress - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada - setting the stage for closed-door meetings later that day among congressional Democrats as they roll back into town from their August recess.


    The president then will address Congress on Wednesday night, using all the drama and pageantry of a State of the Union address as he strives to shore up falling support for a vast redesign of the nation's health insurance.


    "Our nation is closer than ever to achieving health insurance reform that will lower costs, retain choice, improve quality and expand coverage," Pelosi and Reid said in a letter inviting Obama to address Congress. "We are committed to reaching this goal."

    OK, is this not the political equivalent of "preaching to the choir?" I mean, doesn't the Democrat controlled Congress already know what is expected of them? Didn't they write the bill?

    My advice to the Pharaoh Obama, "you are overexposed , to get your message out, immediately and without delay, hire Vince, the Shamwow guy to make a public appeal for your program."

    What's the alternative? He's shown little aptitude for anything other than giving speeches from teleprompters.
