And another e-mail to the White House on the use of Fireside Chats

I have several times suggested that the president use FIRESIDE CHATS to convey his proposals and purposes to the American people... with purchased airtime if necessary; most recently on the subject of financial reform, where there is a great opportunity to steal some of the thunder from the mendacious tea partiers to channel some of the righteous anger of the people towards Wall Street to support reform and Democrats in general.

The President is missing a great opportunity if he fails to do this. And they should actually BE, and be called, fireside chats, from the residence, with the president speaking directly to the people. The link with FDR and the reforms of that era will be powerful and could turn around the whole attitude of those who voted for the President but who have felt somewhat left out since then.
