Tuesday Morning Open Thread




Good morning.

One more day til the big speech. Yesterday, every couple hours, there was a new leak about what the President is going to say. It started with news that the focus would be on the middle class. Then, we got a hint that Obama might actually address the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. And, the day ended with the bombshell about a freeze on spending.

Today should be really interesting as the leaks hit a fever pitch.

Let’s get threading.


On October 27, 2010, Joe was one of five bloggers who interviewed President Obama. Joe is a DC-based political consultant with over twenty-five years of experience at both the state and federal level. Joe has managed political operations and legislative efforts for both candidates and issues-based organizations. For seven years, he was the Director of State Legislation at Handgun Control, Inc. He served as that organization's first Political Director during the 2000 cycle. Joe is a graduate of the University of Maine School of Law. In addition, he has a Masters in Public Administration from Lehigh University and received his B.A. from the University of New Hampshire. Joe also has a fun dog, Petey, a worthy successor to Boomer, who got Joe through eight years of Bush and Cheney. Joe likes to think he is a world class athlete having finished the 2005 Chicago Marathon in the time of 4:10. He has completed six other marathons as well -- and is still determined to break the four hour mark.
