Obama, by pitching jobs plan before Congress, again turns to the Big Speech
"Barack Obama has been here before politically endangered, doubts mounting about his leadership, and a growing sense that, for all his promise, he has lost his way.
"As he has done before whether to salvage a candidacy or revive a policy Obama will resort to a device that has been successful for him in the past: the Big Speech.
"With most of the country saying he has mismanaged the economy, President Obama will use an address to a joint session of Congress on Thursday to outline his plan to create jobs and head off a second recession. It will be the fifth time Obama has spoken to a joint session, the howitzer of the presidential communications arsenal.
"But the risks this time are as high as the potential for any reward."
