Fox News' Brit Hume on Obama: ‘Making a big speech right now is probably the last thing he should do’

(By Jeff Poor, The Daily Caller) - On Thursday night President Barack Obama will address a joint session of Congress to unveil his latest plan for the economy. But is this the best time for Obama to roll out new proposals?
