Live From Jackson Square?

My first thought, when I heard the president would be addressing the nation tonight from Jackson Square, was that this was some sort of flamboyant code or symbol that I didn't understand but which probably had to do with everyone's fascination of the "Jacksonian Majority" which Rove, Bush, and others have cobbled together. Now I realize that they were just not thinking. Look at him! He's wearing a blue shirt against a background with almost the exact same color. As a result, he appears to be a floating head, which every now and again clenches its teeth. Not exactly reassuring.
