President Obama will be making a major speech before the US Congress tonight (9pm EST).
With the exception of MSNBC, most of the political pundits are waiting for the new President to make a Roosevelt or Kennedy type of speech---where the country is electrified by his words.
But, in the words of former Presidential candidate, Adlai Stevenson, "Words are not deeds."
With the economy in a mess, and the Iraq war draining around 10-billion dollars per month---what he does in the next few weeks is far more important than what he says tonight.
Making our vast government bureaucracy work in a practical manner---saving homes, building roads, saving jobs--is much more important than the style or the emphasis of his speech.
He has to remake the structure or our federal government, much in the same way as President FDR did during the great depression.
Franklyn Roosevelt had the Republican Party snapping at his heels, as does Obama now.
However, President Obama does not have to worry about the GOP and their constant harping on tax relief, as if people have the money to pay taxes.
No, in Obama's case the proof is in the eating of the pudding.
During the great depression the GOP blamed the farmers for not having enough faith in the "almighty."
But, the real problem is regaining the faith in our government, and making the day to day decisions, which will improve our economy, and the ability to fight the war on terrorism.
President Obama is making great strides by hiring some fabulous, and learned people, in controlling the Executive Branch for the next 4 years.
