I hear via Rush that a White House source tells FNC’s Ed Henry how this ‘jobs’ speech, so important and fulsome as to require a Joint Address to Congress, well, it will now only unveil some of Obama’s plan. The rest will be laid out over the fall as Obama takes his campai…plan…to the American people.
Translation: Man, that Solyndra thing was bad timing, what with ABC News having already telegraphed just the night before what was hoped to be a successful euphemization of ‘green jobs stimulus’, into targeted infrastructure investment on clean energy. Maybe that ABC leak will be forgotten soon enough. Was worth a try. Squirrel!
The past 24 hours’ WaPo coverage and even an LA Times editorial indicated this latest assault on the Average American’s intelligence would not avoid well-deserved scrutiny and even mockery.
So, IMO, that is behind this strategic redirection.
