President Obama goes before Congress for his first State of the Union address Wednesday night to show he can boost the economy and create jobs this year while cutting the budget deficit in 2011.http://www.usatoday.com/news/washington/2010-01-26-SOTU-obama-freeze_N.htm
The focus of the speech will be "getting our economy moving again," White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said. The president also will call for a three-year freeze on most domestic spending, with exemptions for defense, homeland security and foreign aid as well as Medicare and Social Security.
Every time Obama gets in a jam, he tries to give "the big speech".
