I DVR'd the speech intending to watch it when I made it home from the office. I bailed on it, I expected him to deliver a good speech and by most accounts he did. I'm tired of speeches followed by silence from The White House for weeks at a time while the Senate proceeds to continually fuck things up.
I don't think the administration's fate is yet sealed but Obama and Congressional Dems need to start turning things around immediately. That means Obama using the bully pulpit to draw attention to Senate obstructionism. That means Reid and Pelosi delivering on healthcare. That means shit-canning Tim Geithner. That means telling Chris Dodd that he's not going to kill banking reform as a going away present to Wall Street.
In other words, it's time for Congressional Dems and The White House to get it together. If they don't there's no telling when even a moderately liberal agenda will be viable again - it could easily be a decade or more.
