In what could be a way of lowering expectations for next Thursday’s big economic speech, aides to President Obama are privately spreading word that he will not present his entire jobs plan in his address to a Joint Session of Congress.
I feel like I’m caught in The Matrix: There is no plan.
Thursday’s speech will not reveal any bold, new thinking to Congress. It won’t reveal much at all. This isn’t a joint address, it’s the first stop in yet another campaign swing. This is a press appearance, with 500 or so members of Congress there as props.
