Another Speech?

Do we have an egomaniac running the country?

President Barack Obama will give a speech about the financial crisis on Monday, marking the anniversary of the collapse of Lehman Brothers.

First a speech to the kids, then a speech to the nation on healthcare and now this, all within seven days.

This is beginning to remind me of the experience of a friend of mine who lived in the capital city of a third world country. Every Sunday the upper classes would be required to be in attendance at the city's sports stadium where the president of the country would speak for hours and hours.

    Welcome to the Speechified Nation.

    This isn't your grandfather's speechified fireside chats.
