Obama agenda: Bam blinks?

The tide is starting to turn on holding the trial of KSM in New York City.
 
The New York Daily News calls it "Obama's Big Apple Turnover": "The White House ordered the Justice Department Thursday night to consider other places to try the 9/11 terror suspects after a wave of opposition to holding the trial in lower Manhattan." 
 
The New York Post on its cover writes, "Bam blinks."

"Mr. Obama will travel to Baltimore to announce specifics of his jobs plan, including a proposed $5,000 tax credit for small businesses for each new employee they hire in 2010. While there, he will address House Republicans at a retreat they are holding," the New York Times reports. "The instant Republican resistance to the jobs plan -- coupled with a vote this week to kill a deficit-reduction panel that had been initiated with high bipartisan hopes -- illustrated the chasm between the two parties and the difficulties Mr. Obama faces if he is serious about trying to work with an energized opposition." 

"Emboldened by an unexpected victory in Massachusetts and frustrated with a "partisan" State of the Union address, House Republicans are eager to meet with President Barack Obama on Friday," The Hill writes.

The Washington Post notes that the legal community is divided over Obama calling out the Supreme Court during his State of the Union address, and Justice Samuel Alito appearing to utter, "Not true."
