DUmmies Go BERSERK Over Boehner Bumping Obama Speech
Oh, this is toooo FUnnie!!! The DUmmies are going BERSERK over the fact that Speaker of the House Boehner told Obama that he needs to give his speech at a later time than The One unilaterally declared that he would give on September 7 without first asking permission as is custom. Obama & Co. were too cute by half by declaring he would give a speech to a joint session of Congress at the same time a Republican presidential candidates debate was scheduled at the Reagan Library. What the Bamster and his minions failed to realize is that September 7 was the first day of the Congress back in session with a vote scheduled at 6:30 PM which not would allow enough time to make preparations for another in the endless series of Obama jobs speeches. Of course, the next day, September 8 would be available so Obama can speak at the same time as the NFL season kickoff. OOPS! The "disrepectful" bump has the DUmmies in an uproar as you can see in their THREAD, "Boehner Fires Back at Obama Over Scheduling of Jobs Speech." Of course, Obama wouldn't have placed himself in such a humiliating spot if he hadn't tried to act cute with the scheduling and consulted FIRST with Boehner as is the custom. As it is The One is now forced to eat crow. So let us now watch the DUmmies foam at the mouth in Bolshevik Red over the rescheduling of an Obama speech which is utterly meaningless while the commentary of your humble correspondent, reminding the DUmmies that there are three EQUAL branches of government, is in the [barackets]:
Boehner Fires Back at Obama Over Scheduling of Jobs Speech
A month after they went toe-to-toe over the nation’s debt, President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, slugged it out on Wednesday over the calendar and the president’s desire to give a speech to Congress. The prize is next Wednesday night, Sept. 7.
[You might want to CONSULT about this first with the Speaker of the House Oh Mighty Obamassiah.]
That night was supposed to belong to the Republicans. It was to be a showcase for the eight GOP contenders for president, a chance to use two hours of national television coverage of their debate in California to bash Obama. A chance to look presidential. But with only 198 words in a letter to the leaders of Congress, Obama reminded them who is president right now.
But it took Boehner only another 268 words in his own letter later in the day to remind Obama that while he is president, he does not dictate the schedule of the House of Representatives. Boehner reclaimed Wednesday for the GOP, suggesting that Thursday was a better day for the commander in chief to come to the House chambers to give what the White House hopes will be the marching orders in the battle to revive a weak economy.
Noting that the House will not be in session on Wednesday until 6:30 p.m., Boehner argued there just isn’t enough time to have the president in as a guest at 8 p.m. “With the significant amount of time—typically more than three hours—that is required to allow for a security sweep of the House chamber before receiving a president,” wrote Boehner, “it is my recommendation that your address be held on the following evening, when we can ensure there will be no parliamentary or logistical impediments that might detract from your remarks.”
[Yes, reschedule your useless speech for the next day when even fewer people than normal will be snoring through it due to the NFL season kickoff. And now to the frothing DUmmies...]
Boehner...is full of shit!
[But guess who is being forced to eat it?]
Are they planning to go until 2:30 in the morning, so they can get in a full 8 hour day?
[It's an 8 hour business day.]
And I believe the POTUS does have the Constitutional right to "dictate the schedule of the House of Representatives" by calling for a joint session of Congress.
[Nope! He has to be INVITED. And you usually ASK first to be invited for a specific time which The Bamster FAILED to do.]
This is may very well blow up in his face and give the bloody Republicans a further cause to rally together. Believe me, their first talking point will be thus:
"Obama knew for weeks (at least) known that this was a large Republican presidential debate, and is trying to shove this speech down our throats, and cut off legitimate political debates in this country."
Unfortunately, that line will resonate with with a good number of so-called independent voters, IMHO.
[Congratulations DUmmie stockholmer! You WIN a Kewpie Doll for having a brief moment of mental clarity.]
Obama should then just schedule his speech for that time on national TV without congress or maybe do it just in the senate......and piss on the debate
[Or, better yet, just speak solo to his Teleprompter.]
Can NOT have it on Thursday. NFL kick off is Thursday evening.
[Then have it on Friday when even FEWER people are watching TV.]
The President should tell the Republicans to be at the joint session of Congress
[The King DEMANDS your attendance! Sorry, maybe in Louis XIV France but that don't work here.]
Astonishing! Absolute disrespect for the OFFICE of the President! This goes way beyond his dislike for the man. Please, Mr. President....do not let this kind of disrespect go unacknowledged!!!!
[How about the disrespect of NOT asking first for an invitation from the Speaker of the House as is the custom?]
Caving in to Boehner is not an option
[It might not be an option but it is most definitely the likely outcome. It's gonna be FUn to watch DUmmie heads EXPLODE when the Bamster is forced to eat crow!]
