    That's pretty much the point of saying that presidential speeches in a bad economy do not work.

    Laying aside the ability to work with Congress, President Obama can do many things without anyone's say-so. The problem is that he hasn't.

    If the President had a track record of his words matching his subsequent deeds, then his speeches would carry more weight. By works is a person known.

      I think a lot of the blame has to fall on Pelosi and Reid's heads as well. The narrative that "the Republican Congress doesn't want to do anything" would be more poignant if Pelosi and Reid did more when the Democrats controlled the Congress. When Obama ran, he talked about Green Jobs. They had 2 years to do something.
