This is not the State of the Union speech President Obama will deliver tonight. But, what if he gave an address like this?

Madame Speaker, Mr. Vice President, Members of Congress, and the First Lady of the United States, CEOs, and all those from small businesses who are tuning in tonight:

I am here tonight to not only address the distinguished men and women in this great chamber and their corporate financiers but also the very people who I depend on for small donations to make it seem like I am not under the control of corporate and special interests in Washington.

I know that for many Americans watching right now there's been some distress and concern. I would like to reassure you that American Idol will continue in its normal time slot next week. But for now, I suggest that you try college basketball on ESPN, NCIS on USA, Man vs. Wild on the Discovery Channel, or Real World on MTV if this is not what you would like to view on television tonight. And, of course, you know that Lost will be premiering next week and we wanted to make sure you all could view that so we moved up this address to tonight.

For those of you with the capacity to pay attention to me for an hour, let me begin by saying that I am just as glad as you are that the recession is over. But, that doesn't mean we are in the clear. You know this better than anyone. You've been layed off from your job at the department store you were working at; the bank cannot find your mortgage but yet you are still forced out of your home; the credit card company keeps billing your son or daughter in college for more money; the fatness of your baby is a pre-existing condition so you can't get coverage for your baby's health care; or if you work for a major bank or have a job on Wall Street, you feel like you are supposed to feel guilty for causing the nation's economic problems.

But, let me reassure you. The economy is improving and while the economy continues to improve, while we all work to find our footing and restore our confidence in our daily lives, I want every American to know this: There's a drug for you.

There's an anti-depressant that can treat depression, certain types of social anxiety conditions, post traumatic stress disorder, panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and premenstrual dysphoric disorder in adults over age 18. For more than 15 years, Lozoft has safely and effectively treated millions of people with depression and certain anxiety conditions. Lozoft is available for multiple strengths, so your doctor can decide a dose for you.
