President Barack Obama speaks in the South Court Auditorium on the White House complex
President Barack Obama speaks in the South Court Auditorium on the White House complex, Monday, Sept. 16, 2013, in Washington. After weeks of intense focus on the crisis in Syria, the White House is set to use the five-year anniversary of the Lehman Brothers collapse to lay claim to an economic turnaround and to press congressional Republicans to not use the threat of a shutdown or a unprecedented debt default to extract a delay of President Barack Obama's signature health care.
