    The speaker has the power to stop him. He does control when the house gathers after all. This could get ugly.

    Interesting indeed. What if Obama says no? Then he comes out looking like an ass for playing political games with US jobs as the game pieces.

    I would LOVE to see them prevent Obama from speaking in the House that night. It would force Obama to either pick a different night, or do a televised thing from the White House.

    The former would show Obama in a good light, not wanting to upstage the GOP.

    The latter would prove his intent with picking that night was specifically to upstage the GOP.

    You think it would hurt the speaker even though Obama has already waited a month to make his plan public?

    Boehner said that since the House wouldn't reconvene until 6:30 on Wednesday, and because it takes hours to complete the security sweep necessary for a presidential address, "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."

    Boehner asks Obama to move jobs joint address to Thursday - The Hill's Blog Briefing Room

    Heck almost 3 years for a job plan whats another day

    No, I think it'll make Obama look bad for scheduling his speech on the same day as a GOP debate. Both sides claim the debate has nothing to do with it. Yeah, right. I think the Speaker comes out of this in good shape either way.

    Why don't you either get informed or better yet stop asking stupid question. It is better to remain silent and be thought stupid than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

    The debate time and date has been in the plan for months. Obama knew this when he picked his date and time. Are you that stupid?
