Are They Paying Attention? - What's News Tonight

The puzzle that does not have an easy answer is, Why is the POTUS on TV tonight? Anything unusual happen today or this weekend? No. New crisis? No. The opening statement and the question and answer with a pat list of correspondents just worked over established spin and rhetoric from weeks of the same. Healthcare, energy, education, crisis, banks, tough times. Then the ritual "signs of progress." FDR saw signs of progress every month from March 1933 until Germany attacked Poland and the draft gave work to the unemployed.
