BLITZER’S BLOG: Obama needs to deliver on jobs speech

By CNN’s Wolf Blitzer

(CNN) - President Obama really needs to deliver Thursday night when he addresses a joint session of Congress. I’m not just talking about the politics of the big speech. I am talking about really delivering for the American people.

He needs to come with an understandable and doable plan that will help turn things around for millions of unemployed and underemployed Americans. That means getting some package through Congress; otherwise, the words won’t have any practical job creation benefit.

BLITZER’S BLOG: Obama’s “make or break” jobs speech

By CNN’s Wolf Blitzer

(CNN) - Now we know that President Obama wants to deliver his major speech on jobs next Wednesday night before a joint session of the Senate and House. I've been calling it a "make or break" speech because jobs remains issue No. 1 in his bid for re-election and there are still so many millions of Americans out of a job. There are millions more looking for a better job. Unless the president can turn things around between now and November 2012, his re-election will be in very deep trouble irrespective of his Republican challenger.

For the millions who are unemployed, the nation is not only in a recession, it's in a depression. That's certainly what it feels like for them.
