Obama putting finishing touches on speech

(CNN) – Just hours away from what is arguably the most important address of his short time in office, President Obama will huddle with his top speechwriters to go over the latest revisions to his State Of The Union speech, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said. This afternoon, Gibbs added that the president will get behind a podium to practice for his prime time address to the nation.

White House aides said the speech will focus on job creation, helping the middle class, fighting the deficit, and health care reform. But Gibbs said the president will also take responsibility for the climate that left a lot of Americans angry and frustrated, and he will express disappointment at how difficult it is to change the way Washington works.

    I think this guy still believes in "man caused global warming". The speech should be good for lessons in how to lie with a straight face, as well as something to laugh about as the big "O" continues to destroy the core values of America – Liberty and Freedom from Government oppression.
